    RoadTechMarine have a 32lb for $199-00. Weighs 14.5kgs with 5 forward & 3 reverse speeds. I just bought one for myself & cut down the shaft to suit my C-Kayak. Worth comparing to Sea Snake & Minn Kota for features & price plus they carry all spare as well.

    Thanks mate I'll check them out. My mount is made need to decide on a motor now. When I get home from work i want it set up to fish for Christmas.

    I'm keen to make a home made outrigger set up and even a little flat deck to stand on I'm not keen to cast lures sitting down anyone have any ideas? I was thinking a small marine ply deck and foam outriggers

    Whack a bow mount wireless job on.......nothing else will steer as well or be as easy to handle in currents / cross winds.

    Yeah mate I'm hearing ya. I'm mounting it just forward if center so hopefully it will have a similar effect. I really want a manual tiller job. I have a remote on my tinnie now and i sort of like the tiller job i had on my car topper better.
    Time will tell.

    Re: Electric motor set up for kayak

    Well I'm home from work in a few days so the yak will be getting a few mods. My plan is to catch 3 jacks over 40cm on cast lures from it before the end if summer. A big ask but I'm committed.
    I have since come across old town canoes very stable and can easily stand up in but that can wait i gotta finish this build first

    I know I'm talking to myself but whats the smallest battery i should use ?
