    pistnbroke I try

    you missed the point ...your 17 ib is about 250 watts ...1/3 hp and getting motors of this power at 12v is not easy ...yes model plane motors but a bit on the light side for knock about use .....

    you also cause problem when you have discusion going on in two threads ...people get irritated ....

    All problems can be solved by spending money

    Kayak electric power

    Get the whole thing from Torqeedo. It's a German electric propulshion system. They have regular OB units but one is especially designed for and is a system for kayak power .. about $1500 as I recall. Very slick rig. Search Torqueedo or go to Fisheries Supply in Seattle.
