alos sooking at the Sportspal flat back canoe, that would be similar. 2 hp on a kayak would be lots of power I would think

I have been looking at a kayak for at our lake house to just play with. I had forgotten about the stealth 2000. http://www.mackspw.com/Item--i-OTT2000S one of the guys on the lake bought one of these last year and mounted a 2 hp motor on it. The mount as made for a trolling motor, he beefed up. they are pretty light too. I had an otter 1200 many years ago when I hunted on the river, I hauled it on the top of my jeep.
ya it is for a car with roof racks. want to get into smaller lakes and possibly take it into places with an atv. you are right that carrying gas and motor in a car can be a pain as well.

yes buy a bigger boat! I have not owned anything smaller than a 14 foot 15 hp boat. But I have used a car topper and they worked great, I have duck hunted in a flat back canoe, the only thing that I did not like was it would not plane out with just me in the boat. Between the motor, fuel, and my weight in the back. I have since seen throttle extension handles that would help that. Both were very stable on a calm lake.
What are you looking at using it for? Also the downside it you have to haul the boat, motor, and gas. if your in a car that could be problematic.
