Yeah not on any Goliath lakes. 60 acre lake potentially a 90 in the future with a medium barrow load of gear. Also will use it to have a leisurely stroll down a river with the mrs. Be ok for that?

Is a 40lb thrust too weak for a 2.7m inflatable?

Thank you for getting back to me, appreciated. Yeah, just some decent improvement is what Iím after... I use a similar technique in gathering a bit of speed and then lifting the motor at the last second to ďfreewheelĒ through... Can be such a pain at times and obviously leaning off the back of the boat to clear it isnít the best... Be nice to just go through at a slower speed as itís more stealthy, plus you miss less... Oars are great when itís flat but not so easy in a big blow when loaded with kit...

I think I paid about £50 in The Tackle Box. It makes a big difference, but itís not magic! 40 yards through thick weed is a big ask. It works better if you go flat out and with a bit of pace behind you youíd probably get through.

Travelling 40 yards I would just look for a route round where the weed is thinner. If itís really that thick I lift the prop, stand towards the front and use an oar to paddle. You see the holes better at the leisurely speed too.

How effective is the weedless wedge please? Just watched a review on YouTube and they do look good. Will they keep you moving through 20-30-40yd sections of weed? Lifting the prop all the time to clear it is a right pain in the Ďarris!

Have a look at an e propulsion
Bit expensive but lightweight and last for ages
No external battery or leads to trip over so more space in the boat

If I sell my petrol auxiliary outboards Iím going to buy one for my boat.

I use a 55lb Bison with a 100ah LifePo4. Easily good for 3/4 days and I run the echo off it too.

If the water is weedy a Minn Kota weedless wedge prop is well worth the money. Mine didnít fit perfectly out the box but a bit of Dremel and itís spot on.

I'll have a look, that's not far off being half the weight of the raptor!

Have you ever checked those boats proline makes btw? I have a Raptor myself, but I'm kind of jealous of how lightweight they are. Apparently they're great quality as well and the 2.7m version weighs only 34 kgs, which is about the maximum you can somewhat conveniently lift by yourself.
