Will use it for a recovery boat, but just want to have some fun with one.

I know its more work but what if you put the motor down lower with a belt drive up to prop to bring weight down lower just a suggestion as you seem pretty handy with stuff

It was a quick try to make something good but it didn't work, so the project got dumped
