OK so this is not your average machine, but want the extra stability if taking kids out, and, well just too lazy to paddle, hence the motor. Hope I don't upset the purists, but I am sure the fish won't know the difference.

hi, I am using the same motor - well I will be - on a kingi 2+1 with 3 20Ah sla batteries so hopefully about 2 hrs.
Was thinking about using plastic wheels as floats/transport either up or down, same principle as a m/bike centre stand.
Neat looking outfit.
