Great website and probably provides the most information available that
I have ever seem anywhere!
BT is a great design in my consideration. When studying it I got the
idea that a electric form of auxiliary power "boost" could easily be
interrogated into the design. Couple of golf cart batteries tied into
the drive mechanism and solar panels on the top.
I found the paddle wheel design, albeit being very innovative, seems
rather complicated to actually build. Leave off the wheel and simply
slap a 2-hp Honda on the stern occurs to me as a simpler choice.
Just my thoughts,
I had similar thoughts -- maybe a Minn Kota trolling motor
with some deep-cycle golf cart batteries would work.
I wondered about that long chain. Wouldn't it sag a lot?
Anyway, I hope somebody out there has some photos.
And thanks for kind words about the web page.
