My purchase was for the 30hp or less, and boy was it small! The first one I received was welded more crooked than a Washington politician and sent it back. The next one was just a little crooked, more like a used car salesman. I kept it and put it on. Not because it's great but because there doesn't seem to be a better product out there and I want prop protection.

The River Runner will save your prop and reduce the stress of running shallow but expect to lose 20% top end speed. On my 20hp Tohatsu I was getting 28mph w/o and 20mph with protector on my 14' jon boat. Easy to remove (4 bolts) if you need speed. Works fine until I hit half throttle then it wants to lift motor. It really works great on the bayou and swamp.

The add pics show it being much wider than it is. It does not protect the side of the propeller blades. I made side guards on mine. The steel is thick and it seems to work just fine for bottom protection. I think it's a bit overpriced.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ontarionorth excellent product and value
Great product and excellent value. First river runner I purchased was for a new 2004 Sylvan c/w 60hp. worked great . Traded Boat in 2008 for new Sylvan Pro Sport c/w 150 E Tec motor and installed second river runner immediately. June 2012 hit a submerged rock the river runner took the impact and was lost but saved a lot of costly damage to Prop & Skeg. The third river runner is on the motor. The River runner also adds extra protection to your skeg when launching & retreiving Boat. You might loose a little speed per hr. But I off set that with a HydroFoil from Bass Pro.
