Re: question on lakes with outboard HP limits
Short answer no.
Some electric lakes I've been to want either the fuel tank removed(if possible) or at least disconnected from the engine...others want the gas motor trimmed up while you are there. I disconnect the fuel line, but I don't trim up as I use the gas motor as a rudder on windy days. A good attitude and explanation on why its down is usually enough.
