I looked at the torquedo motors. Great product! but after thinking about it, I realized the motor would be worth more than the boat!
it's an 81 model hobie.... I had the old trolling motor, and a yellow top car/marine battery already so I thought I would try that first.
I looked for a long time for the trolling motor battery mount that hobie used to sell, but couldn't find one available. There were some old posts (pre-2005) but nothing new. I would still like to find something better for the battery, but haven't found anything available yet that is ready to mount.
. I thought of trying a motor cycle battery too, the yellow top one i am using is probably close to 30 pounds, but I was unsure of how long a motorcycle one would power the motor
