Just wondering if there are any other Michiganders on here?   I'm looking to hit up a few lakes and rivers in SE Michigan this year.

Hey there Jeff.. I'm doing well thanks.  I didn't get out on the water much last season due to work.  Things have changed for the better this year and I'm planning on getting back out there again.  The weather here in Michigan is finally starting to warm up and it's giving me the bug to start ripping lips again.   How are you and the float tube family doing??

Dex, This is about my first post here. I bought my Cumberland last summer and have been out in it only 2-3 times. I am over 70 and found the finning around kind of difficult and restrictive as the wind was wrong and strong all times out. So this winter I watched some UTubes showing electric trolling motors installed on float tubes. I bought a used 24 lb thrust motor and modified and strengthened my DIY rod holders and added a battery box supports and front transom to my tube. I then cut a hunk off my thumb on a table saw 2 months ago the week before I finished my mods so I haven't been on the water with it yet. I hope to fix this in a week or so. We are traveling visiting kids, GKids and GGKids. We will be in MI this summer July-August in Whitehall. Passing through your area on our way in mid-July.

I was surprised I could not find many threads where small electric motors have been added. I would like to hear fro anyone who has experimented with this to hear what they learned now that I spent the money and work on mine.
