View Full Version : Pro XS 115 low water pickup

11-29-2018, 09:03 PM
I'm rigging a new jon boat this winter. Project boat is a 2072 mvt Seaark. I bought a 2018 Pro XS 115. It came with the command thrust lower unit. I have a cmc jackplate and I will be making it a tiller. I would like to run a low water pickup. I think with the mvt (has a 4" tunnel hull) and jackplate I could get through some super shallow water with a low water pickup. I'm not sure what I should look for with this newer motor. I also have a warranty till 2023, so I dont want to void that.

Any input is welcome!

Merc had a thing where you could order the large gearcase, so a sporty could possibly fit the newer ones.

A lot of people go with a bobs system though.

Didnt work with many before getting out of new stuff so not sure on compatibility.
