    Y.C. oars are big long paddles gripped with one hand each, r and l, anchored in oar locks, and pulled backwards...make sense?

    And that's what I did, thank you

    probably the most powerful electric outboards available.
    Woohoo, Eklutna reservoir is going to have to put out buoys for a now wake zone. Never need'd 'm before....

    Fast someone buy one and lets get a water skier going out there before they decide to limit electric motors to old trollers only. That's make a one of a kind video. I'm betting that canoe with that 40 would do it. ;-) Fun musing.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

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

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