I would like a simple thruster for my canoe. I want to make a bracket similar to a clamp on outboard motor bracket for my double end canoe. Then run a shaft down to a T100 or T200.
I am just looking for paddling help, no directional control, only forward thrust, and an offsetting force caused by the side mounting of the thruster to counteract the paddle thrust and keep the canoe tracking straight.
Does anyone have a suggested design for a vertical shaft to attach the T100/200 to that will minimize the resistance of water flowing around it? I was thinking of a symmetrical wing design, but the algebra to calculate the dimensions is more than I can do.
