Here are some more pics of my motorized fishing kayak, and a blog from the project: http://blog.iod.ucsd.edu/RIVET/
We keep talking about turning the wave walker into a robot..autonomous surface vehicle..so I don’t have to drive!…haven’t done it yet but will let you know when we do. We have lots of robotic underwater vehicles here so on the surface is easy.
Hope all is well with you and you are having a good summer.
Note this kayak is outfitted with two motor mounts – The one in the front serves for mounting scientific gear

Decided to bring the kayak to Mammoth Lakes, CA for a few days. I also hauled along my electric trolling motor, only to discover that motors are not allowed on the lake I was fishing in. Will test out down here locally. I used Kayak and caught fish out of it. Forgot camera the day I caught most of the fish…but got some nice shots of bow out on the water and snow covered mountains. No problem with the kayak at on waters 8892 feet elevation.
Lake Mamie at 8898 feet elevation in Mammoth Lakes CA. Beautiful day!
