Small Outboard On White River

Recommended Posts

  • Members

I have a Zodiac style inflatable boat that weighs about 50 lbs. I want to put a small gas outboard motor on it and use it on the White River from Bull Shoals dam on down to Norfork. Will a 4 or 5 hp motor, with 2 people in the boat, be capable of going upstream at a decent rate when they are running 8 units?

No, if you chose to try it make sure your wife has a large life insurance policy. Several folks die here every year, many more rescued.
