We have been shopping around for an electric motor for our dinghy, Miss Gen. I didn't want to spend more then 100 bucks on it, since we weren't sure it would be strong enough to work for us. So when this 55 lb thrust appeared on Craigslist, we snatched it up, and gave it a test drive. The verdict: we aren't going anywhere fast, but it does push us along fairly quick. Its also super quiet, easy to mount, and best of all uses no gas!
Billy is always so curious to see what we're up to, but too scared to follow us. I hope in time to get him riding the dinghy. He's very intrigued by it, and smells Chopper from head to foot whenever we get back from a jaunt.
