Not to be a negative nancy but this video gave bad information regarding legality. You are violating State and federal law. First off I see you are at salmon bay which is a Federal Navigable waterway. Which leads into lake Washington. Why is this important? Well Under Washington state if you operate ANY motorized vessel in a federal water way you are required to have the vessel registered No mater what the horse power. That “vessel” has no state registration numbers. Also when the guy was on the board he obviously does not have any of the federally and state required equipment Such as Flares and sound producing devices. Which means you follow under Negligent Operation (46 USC 2302 (a) (b)). Grossly negligent operation is a criminal offense and an operator may be fined up to $5,000, imprisoned for one year, or both. There are multiple other federal laws and fines you are under and could face charges for violating. You also have state penalties that could be imposed. You unknowingly posted a video of you Violating federal and state laws.

So funny, turn on motor while aimed at dock…for the first time on…

Kalvin One says:

can we place a bigger solar panel fixed on us to protect us against sun and rain ? do you have all mounts for that purpose ? how many kilogrammes did you mentioned ? is that possible to bring everything with us in an airplane ? where can we buy everything in Switzerland?

Gardener Rob says:

Awesome, I’ve seen these before and they look really fun. Good to get some info on them. I was surprised how much run time you get.

nice review! keep it up

JJDiablo says:

That’s the guy from the Golf board.

Hamann9631 says:

In New Jersey where I live you are never required to have a motor on you boat. I assume the same is true of paddle boards. There are many smaller bodies of waters that ban motors or limit the power of motors.

natrone23 says:

Really great for fishing.

Mike Easingwood says:

$1800 for the Electrafin. sorry ridiculous price for tech that has been around for years.
