I have the same one the sky's the limit.. Ive re-moded mine 3 times...at its best ,,before someone broke in and stole alot of my stuff... Mine had the following items/mods done to it. 40# thrust trolling motor,battery box/engine mount,treated wooden floor panels,solar panel for recharging battery,removable live bait tank,3-rod holder/ 2 rod holders for drifting, Hummingbird gps/plotter/sonar. camera mount /camera. custom bass boat seat that was raised 2 feet to create underseat storage and provide a better fishing position, and the entire rig had all hardwear replaced with stainless steel pieces, and complete new paint 3 coats corrosion resistant blue metallic....so if ya need help with toon mods I got ya covered...

With the rockers being that large, how do you ride with battery and motor. And I take it you don't row sitting that high, right?
One last question, do you go forward or backward?

Before I go any further... I am in the process of re-doing the toon as we speak..

To answer
It rides great / but I have only 30# thrust and my battery is 1/2 the normal size but with about 75% the stamina of a full size. It has never died on me or shown loss in power even after 6 hours on the water towing a float tuber behind.

motor is mounted in the corner so I can go forward/ backwards it doesnt matter but normally fish facing forward.. no oars. only bring when night salt water fishing or planning to fish bigger bodies of water.

This is how it looked after the first mods, before it became what you see in the other pic... but the 2012 version is almost ready [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Are you using a Deep Cycle Battery?

yes its a deep cycle... BPS has one that is made just for toons,kayaks etc... in the pic above it looks like the weight is not spread out very well the floats may be low and the guy is leaning too far back.... I ride level as can be its like fishing from a recliner..lol

Will they allow this set-up onto DVL or Skinner with their strict "no water contact" policy?
