The new motor mount for my Minn Kota on the new seahawk II

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

This a slick attachment to the Seahawk II to hold either a small gas engine or electric power. It will enable both Hanne and I to get supplies, hit restaurants, marinas, fish, swim, snorkel, explore everglades and islands while Paradox is at anchor or in a marina. I also have a solar charger for the Minn Kota plus oars if needed. I have only had the Seahawk II inflated in my front room. It is sure a fine well made vessel. I can’t wait to drop it in the warm waters of the Keys.

    Congrats on the new inflatable, motor mount and trolling motor..!! I also picked up an inflatable (2 1/2 months ago) and spent 2 months and a week restoring her, she was in pretty rough shape.. Launched her last Sunday, powered by my Uncle’s 2hp outboard.. Had a blast cruising around the mangroves, fishing on the grass flats..!!

    Yeah, inflatables are pretty cool.. Just be mindful of the oysters and barnacles at the dock and seawalls..

    I agree. I’m looking forward to inflatable cruising also. One thing I am looking at is going out and painting from it. A good floating art studio – I think you have seen some of my paintings like the whale series. I also will be selling my art to help support our Keys journey – hummmm maybe right from the inflatable studio turned gallery. I like it up and down canals and marinas selling art like an old good humor ice cream vender with bells ringing… did you see the painting I did yesterday of a Yellowfin Grouper?
