I took it down to my son to have him beef up the metal plate that you fasten the motor to............just something to keep an eye on.
Larry, Thanks for the heads up on beefing up the plate.

Bigger board. However, try to balance between motor and anchor. Not hard to do, this was a trial run.
Joni, I was thinking that would work, but wondered if it would cause the boat to not track strait when anchored when in a river with some good healthy current.

I can't wait to take this boat out on its maiden voyage this weekend on the Sacramento River to chase Poor man's Bone Fish. Here fishy fishy!
