Hi Barry,

I am building the PowerYak and this is an update, as I am already in the registry.
09/25/02: I have worked out a way to steer the boat and control the speed from two positions (depending on whether I am out alone or I have a passenger). I am including a picture of the boat, and some pictures that show the modifications I made for seating, mounting an "outboard" electric trolling motor, and the steering and speed control system I am using. I think the hull is very efficient for eboating as it produces very little wake and is very quiet in operation. I took the PowerYak out for over two hrs. at full throttle and still had plenty of power left in my 12V battery when I got in.
