Im not an engineer, but I am guessing that is to much for a small banka boat.  Pack an extra 12v battery :)

Even paralleling three 12v batteries in the bottom of your rig would be preferable to setting up a top-heavy solar panel on an unstable platform (a kayak). If you capsize out on the water, it is game over. If you are set on putting together a solar set-up, then buy a second kayak, and build a catamaran out of the two kayaks before you try to put anything on top of them.

I have no problem finding a trolling motor. Interested in installing a solar panel to power the unit and charge the battery.

OceanJet isn't that expensive mate. :lol:
