Interested in installing an electric motor to PA14 - considering Jarvis Marine Watersnake Electric motor SKW54/26 transom - short shaft 54lb - any views or experience would be appreciated - also would like opinion of appropriate battery for this setup and adding solar for recharging on the water

regards

Read pages 7/8/9 here: https://www.jarviswalker.com.au/media/p ... m%20SX.PDF

I would ditch the solar panel charging idea, unless you want to haul around a solar panel the same size of your yak.

I went a slightly different route.

I have a 2018 PA14 and like the fact I can easily put the motor in the Hobie drive hole. If I run out of juice, just swap the motor for the mirage drive and pedal back.

I have two agm batteries with a switch so I can cut over to the spare without unhooking any cables.

So far I have had no problems.
