Just saw this post, I would have loved to buy your IMARS 35 for my FC470! Where did you track down your Johnson Enforcer?

Sorry brother! I got lucky with my enforcer, I got it from the former South East District Manager for Zodiac MilPro.

All good, great score on the Enforcer! How much of a noticeable difference in power is there between the IMARS 35 and the Johnson Enforcer?

I just recently aquired my F470 with the roll-up floor, so the 35 hp I have will do for the time being. However, I would like to upgrade to a hard deck with enforcer in the future. I did recently get a 6 gallon MilPro fuel bladder which was a nice find.

Do you have paddles for your boat? I bought paddle from the link below. These paddles are straight from Coronado, all blacked out, and four of these fit perfectly in the paddle storage inside an FC470!

Also, Have you seen the FC470 gear from Patriot3? It is expensive, but the they have the coolest aftermarket accessories for these boats.

Great find on the paddles Grant! Appreciate the share. I will be purchasing a couple of those for sure. I checked out P3's site, cool stuff. Any idea who sells it? Or do you simply contact them directly for pricing & sales?

In answer to your question; yes, there is a substantial difference in felt horsepower between the 35hp & the 55hp. While top speed (with pump jet) isn't much different you could probably flip an empty zodiac bow over stern, if you went straight WOT out of the gate. With a full payload in the zodiac the enforcer is definitely what you'd want.

I had mine at capacity with the IMARS and it was a sunday drive at best. With the enforcer it doesn't sweat it at all.

Ya, the paddles are a good find and well worth the money. They look brand new, but just have some glue residue on the shaft which can be removed with Goo-Gone.

Thanks for the insights the IMARS vs Johnson Enforcer. I'm definitely going to keep my eyes open for a hard deck and an Enforcer outboard.

Patriot3 mostly sells to the government, but the will sell to private parties. I received a price quote on all of their FC470 accessories. Send me your email address and I can forward you the quote. As I mentioned, their products aren't inexpensive but they are badass. I think I'm going to be getting their bow mounted dry bag and maybe their cargo net system.

Thanks again, Grant

Doc,
Do you still have your set up for sale? would you be interested in just selling the motor? I might be interested in the trailer? I already have a F470 and have been looking for this kind of motor. I'm currently working over seas, but will be back Stateside Savannah, GA mid Oct. Please feel free to email me directly shane.mccray@yahoo.com Thank you for your time
