  • Hudson bay ?

    I have a Scot Hudson bay. I'd like to us it on a local pond that does not allow gas engines. I'll need an electric motor, what do you suggest I buy?

    A cattle prod and a paddle might be the cheapest option..... :topjob:

      How big is the pond?
      When i think of pond I think small body of water that paddles would be sufficient in.

          ahhhh...important info. What about one of those minolta 55lbers? I've used one of those on a smaller bass boat. Not the fastest, but it held a charge.

            How about oars? I have 8 footers for my HB. Many carry them as backups on HB's in case the motor quits.

              Not to high jack but are oars and paddles the same? Or are oars a little larger?

                If the wife can't paddle then go with oars for sure and rig up some good oarlocks and an adjustable seat to get in the best position. A sigle paddler on a HB in the wind sounds like a BIG JOB. A good troller in the 55# thrust range should move it along...might be ok with less.
                Y.C. oars are big long paddles gripped with one hand each, r and l, anchored in oar locks, and pulled backwards...make sense?

                  The factory angled oar sockets are a pain on the 21 ft HB . They are set at a angle, sold boat but need some kind of mod to make them work right.

                    it is all about money if you can get a friend to build a rowing rack that would set in your conoe an bolt , clamp or strap it , would work better,
                    then remove it when you put it in the big water an leave the rack home or just get as biggest electric that you can get you will need it

                      Yes. That's what I was thinking. As soon as I saw oar I thought that is what it was. You row your oars and paddle your paddle.

                          The size electric motor you want is the largest you can afford. Or if you want to show off with hands free driving, there are even some nice new models that will self steer to keep the heading that you tell it.

                          On the lower end, know that any electric motor will move it, just some real slow. Your canoe like mine (Albany) is a pig to paddle so if you don't do oars or even if you do you'll want a second battery to ensure you'll never paddle home.

                              probably the most powerful electric outboards available.
