Hello,

I am new to this forum, and answering to a very nice mail I got from Sean, whom I asked for a suggestion for a durable longtail. We brought three not so big canoes from the Amazon, who are frequently motorized by longtails, something that impressed my elder son so much that he urges me on and on to get a "peque-peque" (that´s the name for longtails over there due to the sound). Personally I could imagine chilling around in some beautiful part of nature with some paddles, but as my family has to be happy, too, and longtails sure can be fun, I am by now trying to get one over here.

6.5hp is probably the most the our canoes can bear, are there even smaller longtail set-ups (maybe for thai children?)?

As Sean so kindly suggested, I will try to purchase a SPS setup, and will be looking for a merchant somewhere in Europe.

Well, that´s it for today, all the Best to all longtailers,

jan
