Has anyone looked into the cordless drill motor? on a float tube. I think I may make one. Sounds interesting.

There is a member here how has the first ever Dewalt Outboard motor. I am sure you will hear from him soon about this. I have to say it works pretty well.

Your not going to get much power or be able to use it long on a cordless. I figured he must have powered it some other way or 2nd battery?

You would be surprised. We have played with it in heavy current and it was a blast. NO. You will not go for hours on end. But it has it's uses. Just a drill motor with an extension and a prop added. Mixes paint too!

Gentlemen,
I think there is more than one member with this fishing accessory.
If any of you are considering this you will need to do some homework. Cordless drills have different torques, chucks and prices. Lithium Ion batteries are the preferred choice since they charge quickly and lasts longer. One battery is not enough, two is good and three are better.
You will need to get a trolling propeller.
This is an investment to assist you on the water. It really comes in handy when the wind or current pick up. It will cost you some cash and you will want to get a drill with two batteries. This way you will get more bang for your buck. You can always add another battery at a later time. These compact cordless drills are very powerful and a lot of fun! Thumbs Up

The one that I seen in use worked awesome. It moved 3 of us at once across the channel. For some of you, you guys are thinking too much about this.

I will say this, if you are planning on building one. Make sure you have a good 3-4 batteries to go with it or other wise its a waste. 2 batteries will not cut it.

Solar powered electric drill with 2000watt transformer. Plenty of similar rigs done in Euro.

1/4" steel rod with threads at the end, nut, pvc pipe and 2 cap. drill a hole in the center of the caps, run the rod the caps and pipe. tightened down blad to rod and your good to go. you want the rod about 1" longer than the pvc pipe

I already have a drill with a propeller (glaze mixer) so for me it's just about trying to get it to work with my sea doo batteries so I won't have to spend any additional money.

Forget solar or extension cords go with wind power generators to keep your batteries charged. Atleast then the wind will be good for something out there. Picked up a trolling motor prop off ebay for 4 bucks just waiting on some time to put a set up togeather and decide how much drill I can afford to go with.
