The folks with Gator Tail will be set up and ready to talk about their patented motors at the Louisiana Outdoor Expo. These motors and boats were designed to get you into places where it's nearly impossible for regular outboards to maneuver, places like the swamps of Louisiana that are known for great fishing and hunting.

Kyle Broussard, a mechanical engineer and avid outdoorsman, dreamed up the idea. The Gator Tail operation is based in Loreauville, Louisiana, where each craft is custom built.

The motor was the first of its kind, and the company now offers a 40 horse power option.

Package deals are available through Gator Tail, as well as other products. Make sure to stop by their booth at the Louisiana Outdoor Expo at the Cajun Dome and Convention Center, July 27-29, sponsored by Fire and Safety Specialists.
