Now, if you want an outboard-powered "boat," then get a real boat, aluminum 12 footer or something, maybe a john boat.

Davepa, nice looking rig! Looks like you have it registered here in MD. That's also another consideration when you put a motor on any type of watercraft. Here in MD, and possibly many other states, once you add the motor, it's required by law to be registered & the appropriate numbers displayed. I don't keep my Gheenoe registered, even though it has been, and as long as I'm only using the paddles it's still legal. Add the motor, even an electric, and it has to be registered.

They are up there in the Outcast, Bucks Bag range price wise.
My XX weighs 38 lb. if I recall, Joni's Renegade is 28 lb. and we also have an Assault @ 23 lb. the framed X5's are about 55-60.
And we've been fishing out of kickboats and tubes for over 20 years.
