    Looks great. Just a reminder to put a safety rope or chain to motor. They can vibrate loose and be gone in a heartbeat.

    WOW that looks fantastic!!!! great job!
    Please let us all know the cruising speed, top speed and how much fuel it uses.
    I really do like the mount, and the way it uses the rear rod holders. I never would of thought to make something like that and it's great that the whole rig can be taken off of the yak if you don't plan on using it. IMO that mount was worth the $ and it saved a lot of time.
    How much does the whole thing weigh? I know it has to be much lighter than a 30 to 50 pound thrust electric motor and a 50 pound lead acid battery.
    I am very impressed... and jealous, that is one awesome fishing machine.

    I'm definitely interested in hearing the numbers. I'm sure it will be a little faster than the electric on the top end, but the real difference is going to be average speed. You should be able to pretty much go full throttle everywhere, especially carrying an extra gallon of fuel which weights nothing.
