Good luck with the boat. I have a friend with a 196 Fishmaster. It's been a great boat for him.  We had a 250 Verado on our 2007 Lund that we bought new, however, we got a new boat last year with Yamahas.  The Verado is a very nice, reliable engine. Has to be the quietest engine made, no vibration, etc.  Super powerful, fast, and responsive with digital throttle.  The verado electric power steering is very nice (can drive the boat with one finger) but it had a big drawback for us. We trolled on our kicker that had a tie bar to the Verado alot, and the power steering drew more power than the alternator on our 20hp kicker could keep up with. We would have to start the big engine to charge things back up every so often. As a result we had nearly 3000 hours on our Verado when we sold the boat. It still worked great though.  I know we didn't have the best set up...they have a better system now to compensate for the power draw.  But if you intend to troll with your kicker tied to the verado, make sure it has an isolator and a battery just for the kicker. I think you'll want a big agm battery for the verado too. (i think that's the best solution now). It's worth asking the current owner about if you want to troll with your kicker to keep hours off your main engine.

Thank you for the info. The verado has 190 hrs on it and I plan on going over the boat with a fine tooth comb.The owner said that they ran the  9.9 pro kicker by itself and not tied in to the verado and used the front bow mount motor for  steering the boat.

You’re welcome. Walleye guys that run tiller kickers don’t have the issue we had. Plus, like i said, i think they have a better solution now. How do you intend to fish with the kicker? Thats what you need to consider. That rig looks very nice though.
