Interesting...that bass boat's got to out weigh my Sea Doo. How about the electric engine do you know if you can submerge it into water. I don't have a clue on how water proof these engines are.

The motors are not rated waterproof. They are generally located above the rear axle, so as long as the water isn't over all 4 wheel nuts you should be fine.
The offroad/hunting guys regularly get these splashed and even some really wet and haven't heard too many complaints but, long term, I still think it's unwise to get these really wet.

Just be sure it doesn't have TOO MUCH tongue weight and you should be fine. You dont want the tongue weight to light either or you'll have trouble getting it out of the water.

Thanks....so depending on the angle of the ramp I may need a lift and bigger tires to keep the motor dry.

Anyone know what off-road tires would work with the stock rims (10x7 Aluminum wheel) that are DOT approved. At this point I am not sure what lift will fit (I think Jake's said there was one that would work but I am not sure if it was a 4" or 6" lift). Mike also thought the EZGO factor lift would work.

That will help but it will lever weight off the rear tires and may not work. We would have to see the ramp to give a informed answer.

This lift kit would probably fit your cart, but no guarantees: http://www.jakesliftkits.com/Product...PlayLift.shtml

Tires are in myriad sizes for a 10" wheel right up to 25" diameter, probably a 22" size is about right. Caution, you may lose some torque with the larger tire size.
