Took my 12 foot Jon Boat to the river. Had my 5 HP Motor on it. Trolling Motor on it. Gas and Battery. Got in it realized it had a Little Leak. Got in got the Motor started, ran up the river a ways. Back in as still 4 inches out of the water with Motor wide open, Front end was up. Slow it down and it leveled out. So I can put more weight in the Front. Got it loaded all by myself. Would be easier if I could wade a little it the water. oneshot Put the Big Grin at the front.
