I've got an older model 13' and love it. I use a 40 lb thrust trolling motor with dual battery set-up, GPS/Depth Finder, baitwell, and 8 rod holders.
I am wanting to add a small outboard, nothing to heavy as I sometimes load where there aren't any boat ramps.
No I didn't have the pedal drive on the Hobie, although I wanted it.
Looks like a good boat.
I know a guy that has a 12' Ultimate like mine, he put a trolling motor on it. He said next time we go to the flats together he will tow me out and back.
I have thought about putting a trolling motor on mine, I may on day. If I do then I will need to register it.
I enjoy paddling, and I SURE need the exercise.
