Approximately eight years ago out of a small machine shop in Loreauville, Louisiana, the concept of Pro-Drive had begun. The shop owner, Brian Provost, being an avid duck hunter since age eight, has hunted with his father and brothers for years. Their primary sources of transportation to the duck blinds were outboards and air boats. Since airboats could not be used in some of the places they hunted, an alternative method had to be used. Long tailed mud motors were being used by some area hunters and seemed to get the job done. Therefore, Brian built one and purchased another. After using these motors, Brian found that they were effective but, always suspected there could be other options. Newer style mud motors were invented, but all followed the same concept as previous motors introduced to the United States in the early 70’s. Brian began to think that a mud motor which would operate similar to an outboard, might be safer and easier to run. Hence, the “Pro-Drive - Shallow Water Outboard” has emerged.
