A W Fishing Kayak Rigged With an Electric Trolling Motor

We’re getting reports about people sailing, rowing, surfing, paddling and driving their W kayaks… -When we get enough pictures we publish a ‘story’ page.  The latest story is from Vermont. It’s about Dan Carroll’s electric trolling motor system project for his 2007 W fishing kayak, a.k.a “The Mean Green Machine”.  We call it a ‘system’ because it includes not only the motor but a clever, user friendly steering device as well.
