So after about a dozen trips out on the Kayak i realized the one disadvantage to my super stable and transportable FeelFree Moken 10 Angler is that, well, it’s heavy and it is a hard paddle keeping up with others (it’s not built for speed). So begins the Journey to build a trolling motor. Sure by the time I’m done I probably could/should have just bought a trolling motor. Building it is half the fun.
So My goal is as follows:
- 2-3 miles per hour
- Adjustable speed
- on-board tilt for shallow areas
- 12v power supply
Now I could go out and pick up a 30 pound thrust Minkota, and battery, but wheres the challenge in that?
