    The other day I happened to see a boat being towed. The unusual part (to me) was that there were not one, not two, but three trolling motors on the stern of a medium sized jonboat. Can someone explain to me what this might be all about?

    My guess it's Billy Bob and his brother Gary. Just stay clear of them and you'll be ok....

    They can't afford gas... At least the cost of the battery charger's use will be a monthly delayed bill.

    If you see 'em again, tell them that if they will synchronize the props, it will nearly double their speed. Give 'em something to do.:lol:

    actually I was just reading about some guys who are into the electric boat scene and there was one fellow who modified a 24v . here is his explanation, however i still don't see why he needs three, if one is modified?

    I wonder just how much weight they're adding to the boat by hauling all those batteries? :crazy:
