Help Tip: If you have a question that has not been answered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new thread of your own. By starting your own thread, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum members.

Below are some additional forum policies in hopes of all iboats members will follow, Thank you.

1. Please do not reply to old topics or hijack existing topics. Old topics of a technical nature are like a library book, Please do not write in them.

2. Old topics should be considered archives and used for reference only. Please do not reply to them.

3. Do not take over someone elseís topic (aka hijack) with your own question, even if it is similar. If you have a question that has not been covered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new topic of your own.

4. If you have a question for the original poster (OP) and the topic is over 30 days old, send the OP a PM, he may not even visit the forums any longer, or may not notice your question in the old topic.

5. By starting your own topic, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum helpers that may not even notice your question when itís posted at the end of someone elseís topic. And those answers will be specific to your particular issue.

6. Please do not post to topics that have been inactive for more than 3 months unless you are the original poster. We have very active forums and any topic that remains inactive for that long should be considered "dead". It is especially confusing when there is an entirely new question posted to an old topic.

7. Posting at the end of any topic is considered to be hijacking the original posters topic which in turn subjects the topic to be closed if it continues to happen thus not making it fair to the original poster in the future had for some reason he/she needed to return for additional information or provide an update of the problem solved which is always welcomed within a reasonable amount of time frame.

8. Please note that you should see a red banner pop up near the bottom of each inactive topic asking you not to reply to old topics. The Red banner will read: Please note this topic has been inactive for 90 days. For the best results, please start a new topic.

Thank you all in advance for doing your part in helping iboats run a smooth ship.

    I found a cruise and carry model 6700. On a small boat could they used for a trolling motor? Or are they not capable of it? Just curiuos of what anyone thought about thise model

    they are air cooled, noisey, part are almost impossible to find. it's basicly a lawn mower engine. you want to listen to the lawn mower all day?? go with a small conventional motor, on a small boat you can't be a 4 hp johnson/evinrude, if you can find one. there one of the best ever made.

      Best for emergency power only. Tashasdaddy gave you the best advice with the 4hp Johnson / Evinrude advice.

                  Murray I was born and raised in Texas and there are a lot of guys who have those little one or two man bass boat thingy-doo's. Those things were wildly popular for a while and there are a lot of them still around. They sold a lot of those litte cruise-n-carry motors down there too and I bet you aren't going to find an area where they are more in demand than right where you are. Put it on e-bay as pick up only and I bet someone bites on it. I remember guys who bravely (or stupidly) put 15 horse motors on those two man bass busters ............ wheeeeeeee!!!!!!!! Disclaimer: I would never recomend that but its entertaining watching someone else do it.

                      Yesterday, I drove over 400 miles to pick up a model 6700 that the previous owner would not ship. I have bought a few CnC's that have been in salt water.
                      I am also looking for original CnC owners manuals, carry bags and tool kits. I buy Gamefisher, Sears, Tanaka, Eska, Aquabug and Tas 1.2hp outboard motors.

                      Looks like you specialize in the finest outboard brands ever produced. lol

                      I assume you resale them on ebay. They pull a good price for what they are on ebay mainly because the buyers tend to be ignorant.

                        I like wacky underdog stuff, but I will try to say something nice about these little motors....LOL

                        I had a 3.0 Gamefisher which is the same Tanaka motor, for many years in freshwater.

                        The Good: cheap, very simple and therefore reliable, efficient, super light weight, reasonably powerful.

                        The Bad: not a quiet as an evinrude watercooled, a bit more vibration (single cylinder) plastic parts easy to break - shroud, air box etc.


                        In the end, a very handy little motor for backwater fishing. I could easily carry it around, and it moved a 12' jon boat reasonably fast.

                          I've got one of these little motors, but don't have the manual, and none on eBay.
                          Anyone here have a manual (or a copy!) of a 6700 model? I'd be happy to buy an original or a copy.
