What Happens When You Throw a 5HP Outboard Motor on a Kayak?

This is one of the most satisfying videos on the internet right now.

Kayaks certainly offer some advantages over motorized boats in that they’re cheaper, lighter to carry and can fit almost anywhere. However, you can’t cover near as much distance, nor can you pack all that much gear.

What if I told you there’s a way around at least one of those drawbacks?

A man by the name of Marty Zoffinger seemingly mastered the boat-kayak hybrid, creating what just might be the most versatile watercraft of all time.

Imagine being able to throw a boat on top of your car or in the back of your truck. Consider how many fishing doors would open if you could squeeze into those tight covers where there are undoubtedly fish.

Think about a world where you don’t have to find a boat ramp to launch. The possibilities!

It’s probably safe to say this guy knows his way around a kayak, as not only did he mention a running relationship with Pelican, but he also looked more than comfortable drilling a whole heap of holes in this one. The motor mount looks like it’d be compatible with a Minn Kota trolling motor or an electric outboard, as well, which opens up a wide variety of additional kayak fishing opportunities.

What’s even crazier is that he didn’t really know how it would turn out, or whether it would even be safe to drive. So, when it ended up passing all the tests with flying colors, he must’ve been absolutely ecstatic.

I’d imagine the sliding seat was what ultimately made the difference, as other people who’ve tried similar projects typically have an issue with weight distribution.

What amazes me the most, though, is how stable the boat seems to be even when turning at relatively high speeds.

There’s no reason this fishing kayak has to be freshwater-exclusive, either! This thing would probably kill it on a sound or some other steady saltwater.

This guy is a genius!

What’s Better than Popeyes AND Chick-fil-a? A Fried Pheasant Sandwich

https://www.fieldandstream.com/whats-better-than-popeyes-and-chick-fil-fried-pheasant-sandwich/

Behold—the fried rooster.

Behold—the fried rooster. (Colin Kearns/)

Before we begin, let me set the record straight: The new Popeyes chicken sandwich is better than the Chick-fil-a chicken sandwich—by a country-fried mile. OK, now that we’ve got that out the way, let’s move on to an even better sandwich, the fried rooster.

There are plenty of great ways to cook pheasant—roasted, made into soup, or grilled with a beer can up the rear—but my favorite method, at least with breast meat, is with hot oil in cast iron. With the exception of maybe wild turkey, pheasant fries better than just about any game I’ve ever cooked. The meat stays tender and moist, and pairs perfectly with a salty, crunchy, golden crust. And there’s no better way to eat fried pheasant than in a sandwich.

What sets this beauty apart from a Popeyes or Chick-fil-a sandwich—aside from, you know, the improved flavor you get from honest, organic, hard-earned meat—is that it’s easy to get. The first time I tried to order the Popeyes sandwich, they were already sold out by 1 p.m. The second time, I had to wait in line for 25 minutes, which is longer than it took me to cook the fried rooster. What’s more, the pheasant sandwich brought back some great memories of flushing birds with friends behind good dogs. All I got from the Popeyes sando was a stomachache.

Here’s how to make your own fried pheasant sandwich.

Ingredients

  • 2 pheasant breasts (or wild turkey breast meat)
  • Peanut oil
  • 1 cup whole flour
  • ⅓ cup cornmeal
  • ½ tsp. garlic powder
  • ½ tsp. onion powder
  • ½ tsp. cayenne powder
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Buttermilk
  • Mayonnaise
  • Hot sauce
  • Brioche bun
  • Shredded lettuce
  • Dill pickle chips

Directions

  1. <p>Preheat the oil in a cast-iron skillet to 350 degrees.</p>
  2. <p>In a large bowl, mix the flour and cornmeal with the spices. Season the mixture with salt and pepper. Pour enough buttermilk into a separate bowl so the pheasant breasts can take a bath in it. Set this bowl next to the one with the seasoned flour.</p>
  3. <p>Lightly coat the pheasant breasts in the seasoned flour, then dip them into the buttermilk. Let the excess milk run off, then drop the breasts back into the seasoned flour. Make sure you coat every bit of the breasts with the seasoned flour, because this will make for a crunchier sandwich.</p>
  4. <p>Place the pheasant breasts into the skillet and fry for about 3-4 minutes, or until golden brown. Once they’re finished cooking, transfer them to a plate or cutting board and immediately season with salt.</p>
  5. <p>Meanwhile, mix a few tablespoons of mayonnaise with several dashes of hot sauce, then generously coat both the top and bottom buns with the sauce. Add a pile of shredded lettuce to the bottom bun, top it with the pheasant breasts, and add a few dill pickles. Dig in and enjoy.</p>
