    It works! It works!
    Just prototyped the world's first hands-free electric powered personal watercraft. It's foot controlled, has 2 trolling motors, achimedes screw drives, concealed battery, won't flip over, can be car-topped, weighs less than 80 lbs without battery, has built in wheels for easy water access. Now you can chase fish all over the river without putting down your rod and it works in 6" of water. All I need now is someone to rotomold it. check it out at www.streamdancer.com and let me know if you have suggestions or comments.

    Nice boat what do you think the cost will be?
    Have you had the mould made for rotomolding yet?
    The cost of the mould might give you sticker shock but it it interesting what is being made from HDPE stuff is tough.
    I have Mokai's made from it that have seen -43 in Alaska and over 100 in Phoenix

    I'm talking to 2 kayak manufacturers here in the South. Both have interest. The foot switches are a little rough and the screw drives need refinement.
    Not sure where to get help on those. I'm hoping that someone will take over the project and pay some royalties. Perhaps it will turn into a job in the paddlesports industry.
