Re: Zip okay for pulling a tube?

Also be aware that the tube will pull a small boat like the zip around. It should not be an issue.

Re: trailer dolly???

might also want to check the aviation classifieds around your area. I have seen powered tugs ( the small ones like the one Roberta posted) for less than $100. Some times free. Often then just need new plug and the carb rebuilt.

Re: Charging House Batteries

Many moons ago, mercury use to sell a 9.9 that they called something like "sail power" that had an extra long shaft geared differently and a bigger alternator.

It might have been a 7.5 not a 9.9. I am not sure if they still make them or not

Re: Back-to-back seats, how might I make them?

They still sell those seats. Most westmarines keep them in stock. Just head over there and take a look.

They really are just 4 piece of ply with hinges. There are some stops that need to be made, but over all very simple

I'm no expert but I don't think lithium batteries produce explosive gas. If you have to just put in a partition panel.
All batteries can produce explosive gas
