  • OB Mount For Levitator

    Done.
    The NRS Raft Motor Mount was the inspiration, and if the change, duty and shipping werent so much, I'd have bought the NRS unit and worked with it.

    Had to glue on two more D rings.

    Nice! Looks like it will break-down for transport if needed.

      Yessir, it and the 2.5 weigh less than 35 lbs. Just have to take it down to the lake and see if the 2.5 will move it.....:eek:

        Looks good. Iíd be interested to hear how it works and how well the little outboard pushed it. Iím in the process off assembling a rowing frame/motor mount combo for my pioneer X-streams too. Iíll post up a report and pics when I get that done.

          Tested it out with a 2.3 Honda and it works like a charm.
          If anyone is interested, I can send you the specs so you could have one bent up out of 1 1/4" sched 40 Al pipe.
          However, the NRS one I linked above would work fine on the Levitator with some D rings glued on and maybe a minor mod of the cross piece.
          Flying out tomorrow. Have a great fall gents.

            FYI, a Honda 2.3 will drive a loaded Levitator no problemo, lots of control even on a river. Motored for 2.5 hours on less than 1 internal tank.
