I must say this is one awesome kayak motor. I never thought I would ever have a motor on my Hobie Outback, but I am glad I do. It is also fun to zip around on the lake to get from one spot to another when in a bass tournament. At full throttle, I can get my kayak up to 5.2 miles per hour fully rigged with fishing equipment. I am very impressed with the ease of set up and use. I can't imagine not having it now attached to my kayak. I can not wait until the spring to get out and use it again. I also purchased the Newport vessels Smart Battery Box for my lithium battery. It fits perfectly behind my seat. I highly recommend both these products as you will not be disappointed.
