I wanted something that fits in the well, so it can be removed easily. This works great. Goes together quick and easy. I didn't want to use the glue on control mount, so I used an aluminum piece to mount the Ram ball onto. The end of it slides under the seat to hold it steady, and allows controls to stay inside the kayak. I used the sail at the same time, and went about 5-6 mph for around 3 hours, and came back with 50% battery power left. Without the pedals, there is a lot more room in front. I'm working on making a cup holder that fits above it - maybe something that slides into the bayonette slot.

I have 2 of these motors, and have used them for the past 2 years. I have had to have one repaired (at a cost of $500 +) when some fishing line got caught in the rear housing. I also have had to have them returned for various problems. Thery are wholly unreliable: you can be in the middle of a trip and turn it off, and then when you go to turn it on you get a E30 or some error code, that may take anywhere from 5 min. to 1 hour to repair. Or, more likely, you will not get the motor to work again. I just used mine last weekend and basically this occurred. I cannot say 'don't buy', but 'buyer beware'. It is a wonderful option, especially if you are tired, and want a day of quiet trolling...just be prepared..and don't count on it! (also, it is VERY expensive!)

Addendum: My comments concerning the sword like propeller push blade are specific to when the motor is inserted and used within the Mirage Drive well. The need for vertical propeller orientation when removing is not a problem when the motor is mounted in the rudder position.
