seems like an inexpensive little kicker, but bet it would be noisy as all heck at WOT for any length of time.

A used trolling motor would be cheaper and provide way more power.

Like the jet boat motor made from a leaf blower..Cool idea but not very effective!

here is one for sale http://smalloutboards.com/bumbee.htm

They seem to sell at around 100 bucks. which is a good choice but it is going to be really loud.

So who's going to be the first person to make a weed eater out of an Evinrude? :roll:

Those motors are like El Caminos, they don't really work either way!

You would be better off building a small mud motor from a 1.5hp or 2hp small enging, like from harbor freight, or from a used lawn mower or old pump/genny motor.

I think right now orion ouboards makes the smallest one @ 6hp.
