Outcast Pac 9000

#1
Seriously considering the 9000 for my first still water boat and wondered if any one has any experience with the boat. Positive/negative comments equally welcomed.
Also would like to know if a 45# thrust electric motor will be enough or should it be a 55#. Either way, it will be a saltwater model for a few salt ponds with the balance being fresh water.

Thanks

I have three motors, a 17#, 28#, and a 55#. I don't see a big difference between the 28 and 55. There is a difference of course, but it not like the difference between say a 2 HP Honda and a 5 HP. You are pushing/pulling a fairly inefficient hull for the motor anyway as we all are with inflatables and I'm sure the 45# would be adequate.

If you are buying new, I would highly recommend the variable speed and the Maximizer feature. The variable speed is very handy for holding the craft steady against a light wind or current, and the Maximizer will extend your battery use dramatically. I don't think there's a big difference in price given the same features between the 45 and 55 so I'd definitely opt for the largest 12V motor--the 55#.

Russell,
After talking with the folks at Outcast, it appears that there isn't enough room for the Lab, battery and other stuff.
Thanks for the offer.
