    Electric boat out board

    Does any one know where I can buy a electric boat motor in Thailand, after something that will have enough power to push a small 4 man boat.
    Thanks

    Only ones I've seen in Thailand were for sale at Royal Phuket Marina. Suggest you contact some of the marinas in Thailand and inquire.

    Don't like leky outboards. They never seem to do as they claim. We got some for our ribs cos I will agree they are reliable but the ones claiming to be as good as a 4hp motor just were'nt.

    Or 4 grown up men in a boat do not want to be caught in their activities.

    40k is plenty for a little one. Salt water ones I think bit more but last longer.

    Sorry 40k for boat and motor. Might need a bit more. My mate just bought a GRP kayak that was 20k. Might need a bit more money. Not much though.

    try angling shops.
    i have one in thailand, 25pound thrust and it will propell a 4man rubber ducky for a couple of hours.
    mostly used for bass fishing: you will not need one with a foot control for what you are going to use it for.
    most angling in thailand is "micky mouse-rinky-dink "stuff, but they DO have some serious anglers and i am sure i have seen "trolling motors" (that is what you are looking for), advertised in some of the thai angling magazines, also think i remember seeing them for sale in a shitty little angling shop in surin, of all places.
    good luck.

    I love it when Teakdoor comes up in a Google search.

    I've bought a wee dinghy boat and wondered if anybody sourced an electric trawling motor in Thailand. I can get one along with the mount from USA for about 250 dollars.

    Local would be better though.

    Bruce Kekule who has posted on the National parks page uses them, try contacting him and see where he gets his.

    A compressed air driven prop is the best economical solution I have seen of late to propel a boat of late.
