Cool battery life

i think he said around 5 hours
of constant use....

i get about that much in my john boat or a little more

I like the steering system controlled with your feet-that rocks
the shut off feature, the rudder and speed adjustment are real cool options ...

while i like the Hobie concept i don't like pedaling
when i can adjust the dial... or crank the handle
of a trolling motor

in the best world :
you'd have this set up "in a hobie"
for when the battery goes dead then you can paddle or
pedal ..... your way back and not be stuck

in my case i got blown to the opposite shore in fierce winds.........
the battery was real low and couldn't deal with
25 mph gusts...so then i had to get out and tow the boat
back on foot.... which is why i want both systems!
