    Nice boat. I would put expanded metal on the bow so your cats can ride along if they ever decide to. Also, if that motor can handle 24 volts; add a second battery and switch for hi and low speed. The 24 volts will get across the lake faster.

    It looks like your A-frame is holding the dock up well. Does it sit on bedrock? Seems like it would sink under water.

    I should have kept my mouth shut. Elon Musk has obviously read my post and stolen my idea : https://www.teslarati.com/tesla-road...pacex-package/

    ""If Tesla installs a similar version of SpaceX’s upper stage thrusters that are used in guiding rockets, rear-mounted devices could store just enough compressed air to provide Tesla’s next-gen Roadster an additional boost in acceleration for a short duration.""

    Wow!!!! Zap, it seems everyone would have done it different. Perhaps each critic should create their own boat. We will then critique theirs.

    If you , and Mrs. are pleased with yours, (Yes I am envious), enjoy.

    I am never correct, and only occasionally right. I believe there are 50 perfect boats for each boater, and 50 times as many perfect boats as there are boaters. This boat pleases you. If it also pleases Mrs. it is perfect! You will never amass a greater treasure than a good wife. Making her happy is your highest priority. Jolly Roger, or Hello Kity; yes ma'am!
