    Welcome! Give us some details? Like a gas powered blender? An electric bubble blower? Those would be cool :)

    Welcome to the forum. I need to build a chopper like yours to tow my kayaks.

    Towing kayaks-

    I HIGHLY recommend it, I have been flagged down at least 20 times while pulling my dog and groceries, to let people look at the rig.... I love to make people smile! By the way, this is the boat I pull the rig with, it used to be a sailboat, I installed a KOHLER 17 hp. Courage engine, mated to a Johnson outboard lower unit, it gets 35 mpg @ 6 knots and has throaty Harley exhaust. Engine is a 530cc Single. it is geared for efficiency, not speed. top speed is 12 mph.
