    Very neatly done engine mount. But, weren't kayaks all about physical exercise and enjoying the silence and the nature? ;)

    And... Errrr... so what happened at 3:41? :D

    Kayak was badly mounted vent.
    Has been spilled into the water and drowned my colleague kayak :)

    Now I edited the additional floats - from such a catamaran.

    What a cool vessel, I have had the please of doing some photography with a motorized kayak designer here in South Florida. They used an electric trolling motor, but I think yours looks great. Although you guys looked cold in the pictures...

    I'm glad you liked my project;)
    I'll try to do tomorrow and post the photos here.
    Kayak has extra aluminum underneath floats (to increase its capacity at the stern) But perhaps dispenses with this solution and I bet floats side (like in the movie of your kayak FIT 123 SAIL)
