Don't try this with any other motor in the 10 hp class We've spilled a lot of coffee trying to do this on other motors. And that includes our own last year's Sportwin. You wouldn't buy a motor just to park a coffee cup on. But it does show how much smoother this new 912 hp Sportwin is. Here are a few reasons why the Sportwin has be come the best-selling fishing motor on the market today: It's compact - only 34" top to prop. You can work a lure or play a fish right over it without lifting your rod. It's short enough to tuck easily into a compact car trunk. In spite of its bantam size, it's hefty enough to plane a load of three at a 20-mile clip. It has 16 quick-adjust tilt positions - 8 for running in weeds, shoals, or shallows. The Sportwin is deluxe all the way - full gearshift, slip-clutch propeller, long-range fuel tank - and fully sound-sealed. It's so quiet you can hear the coffee gurgle as you pour it.
