"That looks like a good boat.  I thought about making my own also since I am on a budget.  Don't know how, but would be a fun project. One of my goals is it needs to be light.  Some of the lake/ponds are in the woods and it (and…"

"PHIL, I am making a hull for a commercial sounder/transducer and GNSS equipment. The boat is capable of 20kg payload so the heavy transducers and good size batteries can fit. I am fitting it out with vector able thrusters but fixed thrusters with…"

"Thanks Ken, for the notes. This is more for search then recovery.  Basically I want to use it to scan the floor, and if I find something then the divers can take over.  I am also looking at a ROV design when the water has ice on it. …"

"Hi Phil, I have a similar kayak made by Pelican to be used for a USV.  Some issues arose on initial testing, mainly the lack of a keel. Our unit is for very shallow water investigations, so a keel is not an answer.  We tried tank steering…"

Design Idea

Howdy,I am working on a portable USV for search and rescue.  I am trying to figure out a platform to use of a boat.  I was looking at the RC plane floats, but I came across a youth Kayak that I think might work.  The seating area could house the equipment and an outboard motor might work.  What are your thoughts?  Here is the link to the kayak. …See More

"Great project.  One question, what does the data look like?  New to all this and was trying to figure out how to wireless connect a Hummingbird unit to a land station to get a good picture of the floor. Phil"

"Mat, What are you using for the side scanning sonar?  I am looking into a portable RC / RAV boat to scan ponds and small lakes and need a good picture of the floor for Search and Rescue.  Thanks Phil"
