Lets here it...Muddbuddy, Gatortail, Pro Drive or Boss mud motor?

New motors are out now, 40hp stock from all above. I need to decide on a motor soon for the boat I'm having built. I'm getting a new 40hp just need to decide on brand. Pro drive is out for the places I hunt its down to the other 3. Boss is the MB spin off and not to much info available on them but some reports are looking good. From most accounts its coin toss between MB and GT.

So really, if the mud motor gods offered you a free motor, what would be your pick?

Why is PD out for the places you hunt? You dont think it can handle the abuse? Too slow?

Who is building your boat? What are your boat specs?

From research PD shines is grass/vegetation/mud. GT and MB are suited for the stumps more. 20/54 boat. Really 19/54 but I'm pointing the bow to get to 20 to avoid flotation. 3/16 bottom and 1/8 sides.

I'd like to hear whoever told you that explanation. You do understand that all surface drives use a surface piercing prop right? That means 1/2 the prop is in the water while 1/2 the prop is out of the water when you are on pad running. That means while on pad all the mudmotors with run stumps the same. If you look at the design of a MB and GT vs a PD you will see two that the out drives are at a 90 degree angle vs one with a 45 degree angle. You tell me which angle takes the worst impact from a direct stump impact.

Now if you had said you run hard bottoms the majority of the time and the design of the GT/MB shines there vs a PD I'd buy it. Saying one is better than the other in stumps tells me someone has run all 3 nor is familiar with the lower unit designs.

For stumps I'd make my decision on which one allows me to sit while driving so I don't get ejected from the the boat, which has less tiller torque, and which has the best customer service because at some point if you run stumps 100% of the time you are going to need service with any of them.

Im a prodrive guy but mostly because it has been very reliable and prodrive has the best customer service of any company Ive ever experienced..in any industry with any product.

Performance wise vs other brands I have nothing to add. As far as durability it has been pretty darn tough in the 3 years Ive had mine.

With a boat that large Id probably look at the Hoss.
