Interesting and add in a 20% off coupon they put in all the magazines and that is super cheap. Not a bad start if you don't want to break the bank at first, thanks!

Cool it is Nicad atleast, wonder it going with lithium ion would make a difference or be worth the cost.

They have alot of IN-STORE sales. I got my last crodless drill there for like $15 and it is pretty decent.

Ok guys I finally broke down and got a cordless drill at harbor freight with extra batteries. Went and got the hardware to build the drive shaft. Now to get the prop. I have an old minnkota to be the prop donor. I'll try to get this all together and post pictures. I am debating on the length of the drive shaft and if I should try to use the crossbar on the Cumberland to help stabilize the outer pvc shaft housing via a bungee. That way it can be a one handed operation for the drill. hmmm

Good idea but if water wet the cordless drill, it will void the warranty or so, any one use any water proof bag or accessories to cover the drill during use when tubing?

How to waterproof the drill?

I'm very interested in the these longtail cordless drill trolling motors.
I'm planning to use a Dwalt 995 brushless cordless drill using the middle speed setting at 1,300 rpm with lithium batteries 18 v, 5 amp hour x 4 for the power source.

I'm just trying to remember what size remote control prop to use or what size trolling prop to purchase.

Does anyone have any researched suggestions?

It would be great to solar charge the spare lithium battery whilst under way in the boat with a sun shade solar panel, my canoes are open canoes at 15' LOA with 4' beam with a comfy sitting/sleeping area.

On my drill I have three settings, 450, 1,300 and 2000 RPM.
I think I read somewhere that 1,300 RPM is good but my memory is hazy and can't remember where I read that.

So any information about RPM's and R/C prop diameter and pitch attitude would be very welcome.

It's a great idea I would like to accomplish, just researching what size prop and RPM's to use, so any suggestions would be welcomly appreciated.

Great to carry on the conversation.

As for waterproofing the drill, at least against heavy rain, I think a heavy duty clear plastic bag with air/ventilation slits around the ventilation intake of the drill and drainage holes at the bottom of the bag might do, to let the drill still receive air and the bag could be held in place with elasticated straps to form the shape of the drill to provide easy drill operation/usage.

Still it would have to be tested.

As for waterproofing the drill being submerged, from an accident maybe a dry bag make to the shape of the drill but then there would be no ventilation slits and the drill would probably overheat when being operated.

But rain cover should be possible abd hopefully not overheat the drill.

As you can tell, I'm into this idea, to me it resembles freedom. Lol
