Re: Solar powered Amp Eater

Wayne, Yes. the gray strip is a the metal tag they gave me at the Division of Watercraft with the Hull Identification Number. Also have one inside the boat in a less obvious place.

Re: Solar powered Amp Eater

G-12 was a great success. the Aquatron gave several rides and made the trip to the dam. It was a 2-1/2 hour round trip fro the Aquatron due to strong current and milfoil wrapping on the prop, but all in all, a pleasant trip.

Re: Trolling motor powered Amp Eater?

That is probably the most powerful and best 12 v trolling motor available. Will develop nearly 1 hp.

Don't show that cat to my wife. If we had another cat 3-4 feet long there won't be enough room in the bed for all of us and our couch is not that comfortable!

They want to see reciepts and other proof such as photos that you built it yourself. They measured the length of the boat, verified type of hull and material of constru...
