Hi all,

Been reading posts using the search function and haven't come across anybody doing what I would like to do with a Hobie kayak. I would like to use the Mirage Rev 13 for up to 100 nm daily cruises. I am a sailboat cruiser and have used my gas outboard powered dinghy for some long distance gunkholing/camping and have really enjoyed it. Plans for the Rev 13 is a Torqeedo evolve and a single 285 watt solar panel (35.66 volts 8.04 amps). This panel will serve as a dodger for protection from the sun, weighs 50 lbs and measures 77" X 39". My hopes are to use the existing fishing pole holders and the optional inflatable amas's bracket for mounting. I'm not a big fan of raising the CG of the kayak with 50 lbs 3'~4' above the water line but hope the amas in their high setting (lowest drag) will do their intended job.

Think this will work?
Would you use the evolve in the well or rudder?
Are my intended attachment points adequate for a 50 lb load?

Anybody care to comment? I'm all ears.

Thanks,

Bob
