More, plus Koloa landing, my favorite launch place. It's an 1800's to early 1900's whaling  ship landing and a great shore diving spot.
Found this large shark size circle hook, looks calcified, much like a hunting arrow I found one spring amongst the bones of a Elk that musta escaped the hunter that shot it. Hope it didn't come outta a turttle ora monk seal. What do you think?

Gregg, how big is the battery pack and controller?  Larger than a car battery?  Any guess how long the battery would last at about 3 mph?  Thanks,

Hi Steve. The battery can be seen aft, on page 2, 1st pic. of yesterdays post, 'bout 8"x10"x5", at the most 1/4 the wt. of a car or deep cycle marine battery. It's gotta built in GPS for speed display. The controler's 'bout 5"x3"x2.5", kinda hard to make out, mounted on the starboard side close to the seat.
I come back now with enough energy to clean and put away all my stuff!
Good question-3 mph-time. Gonna have to look it up, but a very rough estimate would be 1.5 hr.

Old school or no school?

Necky Dolphin from '96. Great boat, fast, but not at all what folks think of when they think fishing.

Almost sit-in narrow, not much in the way of primary stability, though the secondary's very good. No rigging for fishing included, so I added the scotty track mount and use a pair of rod holders that are in the seat. Typically I'll just fish with the rod under one leg and atop the other.

Cool! Nice flounder! There's really somethin to be said about simplicity, weight and manuverability. Last week, trolling 2 lines in moderately rough seas, my rudder pin sheared. Kayak immediatly spinning in circles, wrapped one line on the rudder, the other around the propeller, had to limp back using the paddle. Ah well, still gettin used to the new drive system. Eventually I'll jettison  some un-needed items.

Forget about all the reasons why something may not work. You only need to find one good reason why it will.

That's one of the things that I love about fishing off this little guy--it necessitates keeping it simple, and makes even little fish feel a bit more exciting.

It also lets me travel stupidly light.

I own a few yaks. I got boats with all the fruit but I prefer the simple life when it comes to yakking.

Here's my Wilderness Tarpon 140 with a 20 lb Queenfish caught popping in Willies Creek from an ABU 5500 C3.

Despite the humble name, Willies Creek turns into a very large estuary expanse during a big ten meter high tide.

Those signs in the back might be warning notices that crocodiles often frequent Willies creek.
