I had some spare time and parts laying around the garage so I decided to motorize my old kayak. It took a lot more work than I expected but I'm very happy with the results. I took it out both Saturday and Sunday and it was great to be ably to fish without paddling. Top speed was about 4 mph on GPS and I had plenty of juice for a whole day of fishing. I rigged the steering to foot pedals and the throttle is the knob just behind the seat on the right side.
