When I use the kayak inland I no longer attach outriggers to it, but for trips in the ocean I still feel I need the extra safety the outriggers provide.
I’ll add that I have had 7 previous boats but that this year I have caught more largemouth bass from my W500 kayak than in the previous 50 years+ combined due to the unlimited access it provides to launch in every and any size body of water. I have been out in my W500 a lot, each time resisting making any permanent modifications as much as possible until I get the feel for the best way to rig it. I encountered promotional videos for kayak outriggers that I believe serve as good advertisement for your amazing kayak. After seeing Sungjin assembling a meal on board his kayak, maybe I’ll try chao (stir-frying) something in the W500 at some point! He created this outrigger system from foam boards and aluminum rods that he cut and assembled himself. Electric trolling motors work well for trolling on flat water, but when it comes to going in choppy water and in the ocean, another type of propulsion comes to mind, and that is (very) small, lightweight, outboard gas engines. An overpowered boat, or kayak, is unsafe, and keeping safety in mind, most small outboard boat engines are too big and powerful for kayaks – even for the stablest kayak, which is the W500. Electric trolling motors work well for trolling on flat water, but when it comes to going in choppy water and in the ocean, another type of propulsion comes to mind, and that is small, lightweight, portable outboard gas engines. This is because electric trolling motors have a low effective power output relatively to the combined weight of their engine and battery, or batteries. Another advantage that gas (fuel) motors have is the fact that refueling them is easy, so their range is not as unlimited as the range of electric motors is.
We do not recommend using big and powerful engines, simply because going too fast in such a small boat (or any boat, or vehicle) can be dangerous, as both directional stability (tracking) and lateral stability are reduced at high speed that can be reached with such motors. This clamp mounted motor mount is offered with an optional outrigger, featuring an adjustable height system, which enables driving the kayak with the outrigger outside the water.

Back in grade school, there was always a competition between classmates to see who could make the best paper airplane. If you want to add some power to your paper aircraft, you need look no further than this Electric Paper Airplane Conversion Kit.
Starting in the center of the wire, wrap the wire tightly and neatly around the marker 30 times.

Ask an adult to use the hobby knife to help you remove the top-half of the wire insulation on each free end of the coil.
Place the needles upright next to the terminals of each battery so that the side of each needle touches one terminal of the battery. Tape the small magnet to the side of the battery so that it is centered underneath the coil. In our case, current travels through the coil you created, which is called the armature of the motor.
I had this hardware already as I used it on my square-ended canoe.  I use them when I deploy the Honda 2hp because of the need to turn sideways and make sudden, hard pulls on the starter rope. I think it would be very useful to see a video of someone deliberately and carefully tipping the W500 as another way (versus the dramatic, jumping and rocking videos) to show how far you can go. The boat is very deliberately named Banana Split partially because of the color I chose, but more due to its multiple personalities!
They offer a reduced effective activity time, and that could be a problem in long trips, or in adverse weather.
Also, the more powerful the engine, the heavier it is, which could lead to steering problems. You can easily and quickly dismount the motor mount, and store it, as well as the electric motor in the W500 hull tips.
These transom mounts are easy to install, and since they’re attached in the center of the kayak they can support heavier and more powerful engines.
Something to do with something that wasn't making contact is what I found out for a long time. The brushes wear to the point the springs no longer press them firmly enough to the commutator. Electric energy can be converted into useful work, or mechanical energy, by machines called electric motors.
Current flows from the negative terminal of the battery, through the circuit, and to the positive terminal of the battery. North-south interactions stick together, and north-north and south-south interactions repel each other. We need a way to periodically break the circuit so that it pulses on and off in time with the rotation of the coil. The reason that the magnet only spins in one direction is because spinning in the wrong direction will not cause the magnetic fields to repel each other, but attract.

Maybe right next to typical SIT and SOT models of about the same length (with brand ids hidden!) to highlight the differences.
Steering is done conveniently from the middle of the cockpit, by using a long tiller extension outfitted with a U joint (articulated tiller extension).
We had to push her back into the driveway earlier and unfortunately my daughter misjudged and parked her too far over to the neighbor's side. The spring gets weak from heat and vibration and the brushes are no longer held firmly to the commutator. My friends and I would spend hours (and waste countless sheets of paper) making modifications and trying out new designs. Because the magnetic field created by the current in the wire is not perpendicular to the magnet taped to the battery, at least some part of the wire’s magnetic field will repel and cause the coil to continue to spin.
I should note that I use an aluminum mount, my pontoons are foam (lightweight), they are set to ride above the water and are only used with the motor. Daughter's boyfriend came over and is quite handy with cars, so he looked at it, took a hammer and mallet and tapped the starter a few times, and it started! WTH?? The brushes are what feed the electricity to the motor to create the magnetic field that makes it spin (electric motors work by using two opposing magnetic fields to make it spin). The way we set up our engine makes it so that whenever current is moving through the coil (giving it a magnetic field), the coil is in a good position to be repelled by the stationary magnet’s magnetic field.
The divisions in the commutator are individual circuits of windings so the opposing field stays in the same spot even though the assembly is spinning. The most likely thing that happens when you bang the starter is the brush is hung up in it's housing and it moves forward and makes better contact. The less likely result is if the contacts are not making good contact, when you hit it they shift a little bit and make better contact. Not being able to get the part is the reason *I* know more about the car now, tho, so I guess there's that.
