So this idea of yours looks like it is a great solution to the issue, although I will wait to see what others have to say as could be some reason not go go down this route, but I cant think of any reason not to at the moment.
Cheers I have still to do a few bits to it yet, but you get jist of the idea.
I too thought about an electric motor.
What put me off was the size and weight of the batteries.
The little Suzuki packs a fair punch for its 12.5kg, more than most small electrics.
As the fuel tank is built into the unit it gives you two separate fuel sources should one become fouled.
Time shall tell how successful my contraption is.
If it gets me out of one sticky situation it will have been worth the 3-4 hours work I put into it.
