Sure you will.

Did you check out the price? $3595.00

I also wonder about how well sealed the motor and battery are.

Great, another suposedly "green" alternative to cars. I love how so many people think electric is green because it does not burn fossil fuels. Where does the electricity really come from? Aliens?

If you want to be green and get around, use a pedal bike. It is cheap, can be stowed and anyone in good enough shape to be sailing can pedal a bike. And if it is ugly enough, no one will want to steal it!

A $50 (possibly stolen) bike off Craigslist sounds much cheaper.

Of course it would end up saving me money if I required the First Mate to use it for shopping trips ;-)

They call it the Yike Bike because when you see the sticker price of $3595 USD you'll say YIKES!

Think I'll walk.
