This motor worked well on my Hobie i12 Inflatable. I use it in place of the pedals. It went for several hours in the ocean at Santa Barbara and San Diego. I got the solar panel so I wouldn't have to run the generator so long at Catalina. The only drawback is, you can't go over the kelp with it in place, and have to remove it when beaching the kayak. It pulls out easy enough when that happens. Also, the solar panel needs to have a frame to keep it flat and pointed to the sun. Tying it over the kayak degrades the charge too much. I think something made out of tent poles should work. It's a little pricy but a lot of fun, and you can go farther than paddling. I'm glad I got mine.

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!)
