Man that's fast! I'm lucky if I get 7.5KPH from my Predator XL also with a 45Lb thrust motor. However, my body weight together with the weight of the battery is 165kgs, so that might explain some of the drag:)

Very cool Ricardo!

I have a 110AH AGM battery that weighs 29kgs and a 40AH LifePo4 that weighs 6kgs

The 6kg battery is light and easy to cart around on land while the 29kg one is bit of a pain on land.

The longest trip that I've recorded the AH usage was 25AH used when I borrowed someone's watt meter, but I can easily see myself doing longer trips than that. So basically I use the 40AH for short trips in Kawakawa bay and the 110AH everywhere else.
