So far so good, by John Miller

Everything is going great. I haven’t tried my W kayak with the motor on yet, but last weekend I already installed outriggers that have 60 lbs of flotation next to the motor mount. Looking forward to a full test run next weekend.
Will send pictures and a report.
The fish pictures are from my last Sunday gulf trip. I caught them from a friend’s 18’center console about 18 miles from our launch point

    Thanks John,

    Sounds pretty good, and the fish are awesome!
    If you outfit a kayak with outriggers, it’s better to get big ones since small ones add very little stability in real-world conditions.

    Lets hope you are not going to try to repeat that trip in your motorized W 😮

    With an extra gallon of gas on board 18 miles trips are feasible but like you I wouldn’t venture that far offshore in such a tiny boat.

    Outstanding, and Good Eating too! 🙂
