Thanks, I've thought of that. The problem I see is that sometimes you need to lift the TM quickly up out of the water when you come upon a shoal or underwater obstruction. You could steer with a long extension but pulling the TM up away from whatever it's about to hit would be another matter, when you're several feet away. Steering could be a problem, I know, but I'm thinking I could use a paddle blade to alter my course, if the TM wanted to go just in a straight line. I'm more worried about the gunnel walls breaking down or not holding the TM properly. I guess I'll need to try it out somewhere and see how it works.
