    Replace that trolling motor with a PD, and you are ready to roll. :dv :dv :nutz

    I do not know who made this, but 870 is probably right on, I have had other people say that it looks like a fin and feather. Weighs, I guess about 90lbs, hard to say. I removed all of the seat stands, and foam flotation. Cut the shaft of the trolling motor, making a handle extension and running the battery upfront, building dolly to wheel it.

    Auto,

    I think you've got an old Bobcat Mag I rather than an Electric Feather (or Fin-n-Feather). IIRC, the EF hulls had the hump on the stern deck where the trolling motor head pivoted. Get rid of that trolling motor and get a $60 double-ended kayak paddle at Academy( and a 3'er for a spare). That way you don't have to fool with running lights and TX numbers.

    That's me in a pokeboat on the right, and a couple of buddies in EF's on the left, on RC circa 1989.
