Ok I am 6'2" and this motor scares me becuase you have to
pull up on the release handle then pick it up by the head of
the unit a couple of feet out of the water before you can lock
it in place.
All of this while leaning over the very front edge of your
boat; and please dont hit a stump while doing this.( I like my
lawn mower pull cord on my old unit; it's safer)

I have had wood chippers that did not make as much noise as
this unit does just turning from side to side; the thing
sounnds like it is always under a strain even when it's not in
the water.

The worst thing about the whole deal and the reason I returned
my unit for a refund to BPS is this, as I stated you have lift
the unit up so the shaft has to be loose in the mount to do
this so on top of the meat grinder sound every time turn the
unit you also get this loud clunk noise all the time it
reminds me of the coffee grinder scene in city slickers. you
will not sneak up on the fish with this unit

I went back old school with a tiller unit.

also the quick release system makes for the quick steal
release system; it should have a keyed lock and why does it
not come with a prop wrench if you need a prop wrench too
change the prop; that will cost you an addational $15.00 ?
I have tried more then onece to post my review of this unit on
the BPS web site and it will not let me. I have e-mailed them
to find the problem.
