My thoughts on this unit, I know there are expansive but I can see how they would extend your time on the water and could also help to get you out of some bad spots. To have a motor like this available would be a Plus in my book now to just get past the cost. What do you think?

Hey

I dive with a scooter. Basically an underwater motorcycle. Sort of.

It helps me get to where I want to go more efficiently, as when you're underwater, TIME is the greatest, most priceless committee. And we'll do anything to get more time. With a scooter I use less gas (adding time), I get to far flung locations (in less time) and I mitigate current (also a gas burner...)

With a float tube - I've thought a lot about a trolling motor... and if I fished the big water, it would probably be a more serious consideration for me. With a tube, its not time that's the committee. Its distance and freedom. We tube because we want to go where we want to go.

So far, in SoCal and in Maryland - my tubing choices have been biased by where I can safely kick. So I've never placed myself in a position where I could use an assist from a trolling motor or booster like this.

I need to think about this a bit. In the diving world, two is one, and one is none. Its tough for me to imagine using this to get beyond where I could safely kick back if/when it should fail.

Being stranded in some cell phone-inhibited location, forced to hike out would be sub-optimal.

I need to think about this one....

Thanks for sharing. Its an interesting proposition.

$1000.00 per min. and you need to register your float tube as a water craft and have a permanent CA number on it. Naw. I seen it at the Fred hall show two years ago. Too much money.

I know what you are saying but i still the benifits as far as over the traditional trolling motor. Cost excluded its is a compact wireless unit that packs a punch

Add this drive, a fishfinder, and a camera set up and our tubes with batteries are getting pretty big to be carrying to the water.

So my thoughts are along these lines.
At $50 to $100 it is a no brainer, buy it and see how it goes.
At $200 to $300 I need somebody I trust to give it a good report.
$400 and up I would need to hear nothing but praise and proof that 8 to 15 miles can be reliably covered in a 4 hour trip.
