  • This was a fun build! Shortly after I got this boat, I realized it could be tough to operate if the wind and current was ripping. And if I was to rent this to people, I felt it should be more fun and less work.
    Now that I know the build was a success, I'll soon have a cool new, easy to operate boat for a family to rent. And like I mention in the video, I might just get another for those that aren't afraid to get a workout. Because, really, the Monaco DLX wasn't that bad right outta the box.

    My thanks to Pelican for the good deal on the boat

    And many thanks to Coleman. The lil outboard is doing great!

    Reinstall that electric motor and fab up a hardtop for the boat with solar panels to keep the battery charged...

    +kurtthezombie Exactly, thank you. Sure glad someone else is thinking the same. Smart brains think alike

    With some practice and the right YouTube vids plus tools (maybe even a friend) for the job. Also with patience and the willingness to screw up. You can brother.

    It works, putting all those ideas together to make them, it's rewarding👍Thanks for sharing video.

    Gas is cool a bigger electric would be sweet with a solar panel attached to extend the battery life.

    put a merc 250 big tiller ..that il move it

    Electric Motor was enough. Little cooler with some ice a couple brews and a fishing rod or two. Stop right there. Ahhhh.

  • ziad ajam (Apr 3, 2019)

    James Farnham nah. How much easier and longer lasting is it to fill up gas than charge two batteries. I think both have their pros and cons but in my opinion gas is better

    Marty! It needs a Tiki. You can do more with a case of Bud Light in two days than most people can do in a workshop all year. When I saw you get the Bud Light out of the ice machine, I was think we would soon be calling you 3 finger Marty. The you put up the " DIY responsibility." I couldn't stop laughing. For you it could be said "We can't change the wind but we can modify our boats. LOL Great video. Thanks for sharing.

  • Pelican needs to hire you as a full time engineer! Your craftsmanship is 2nd to none! Great job!

    I agree some comments below; electric is the way to go. If a customer comes into your shop to rent the paddle boat (with motor) and is new to the water, even a small gas outboard could be a problem waiting to happen. A electric trolling motor with the right amount of thrust to move the paddle boat around at decent amount speed for a beginner or novice boater is the safest choice for you :-)

    +crispyspa depends on the amp hours of the battery, weight of occupants, & full or least amount of throttle. Hour or two on lower throttle setting.

    how about common sense and you don't rent it to newbies.. you don't put a straight 4 in a Corvette for people new to sports cars.. but only my opinion. still awesome though who hasn't thought of doing something crazy like this.
