It would not be connected to the tube. I think that would be the difference.

I ordered one of these. As soon as I get a drill motor to run it, I will write up a review.

If I am doing something sneaky or illegal, odds are I will get caught. Just me though. Much cheaper to do it right, to me. This is a motor no matter how you paint it Sad

"To live outside the law, you must be honest." Bob Dylan

I met the inventor of the idea at the Reno Boat Show on Fri. It costs $39 for the commercially made one. How do you secure the prop on the end of the rod??

Mine should come this week, I'll tell you when it comes. I'm thinking the end of the rod will be threaded.

Did you ever get yours? I am interested in getting one and would like to know if its a good unit!

I see it on eBay, it looks a tad cheaper to purchase it direct from his site. But you can't specify the length and color on his site. I am thinking of going with the 4' over the 3' version unless someone can recommend why the 3' version is better.

Yes, I got mine. It is the 4' model. They told me that I could specify a length. It would not be difficult to cut it off, even now. I do not have a suitable drill motor as of yet. It came with a warning about drill motor overheating. It said that most lithium ion batterys have an automatic shutoff when they get too hot. They recommended only running the unit for a minute or two continuosly. That somewhat limits its usability. Notice that they do not mention overheating in the advertisement.

Interesting, did you purchase direct or off eBay if you don't mind me asking? I would only use it in spurts to get where I need to go and then just anchor down at each spot. I have a Rigid 18V cordless drill I can use that's been collecting dust. Its ni-cad but it'll do, plus I wouldn't cry of it died compared to my dewalt drills

Yeah, I got it on eBay. It fits nicely across the back of my Cumberland tube, just behind the seat. Would need to have some kind of shower cap-type bag over the motor. Mine will be for emergencies, so I will keep the motor in a ziplock, stashed behind the seat-back.

A couple times I have had leg cramps so badly that I wished I had back-up.

this totally sounds like a perfect little backup especially if your legs are cramped or say you lost or broke a fin.

I found my old Rigid 18V drill last night, it goes up to 1500rpms and I have 2 batteries, should be a good drive motor. I'm gonna order the drill paddle today, just need to decide either to go direct or through ebay. Thanks!

If you use a hand drill instead of a power drill you'll be golden. It's hard cranking but worth it.

Does anyone know of any dual handled hand drills? As in a hand drill that cranks using both hands. Cranking one hand at a time is really tiring.

Is there a reason for not going with the small Minn Kota motors?
