Kayaks are inherently unstable. We recommend the use of a stabilizing system (i.e. Scotty) when utilizing electric power. Additionally, securely install the battery in a box or tray, fastened to the hull, as low as possible. Always reduce the power setting when turning, and NEVER stand-up while under power and ALWAYS wear a Personal Floatation Device!

Brent from Galveston, TX - I have researched long and had for the perfect kit for my Jackson Big Rig. I found the Electric Kayak Company during a Google Search. After a few calls to discuss pricing and options, I ordered the kit with the optional power ram tilt. All I can say is BUY ONE! The install was flawless, the fit and finish of the parts was perfect and the cost blew the competition away! I upgraded to the Riptide 45 motor and the power tilt actuator. The next closest competitor was hundreds of dollars higher, didn't offer the power actuator, and only put a "saltwater coating" on their freshwater motor instead of offering a true saltwater motor. If you are in the market for a trolling motor kit for your kayak, you owe it to yourself to give Bob a call. You won't be disappointed!
Gary from Jacksonville, FL - I have this installed on a Wilderness Ride 135. The mounting is very secure and steering is easily controlled with the factory foot pedals adapted to control cables like would be used for a rudder set up. The control box allows speed control, 5 forward and 3 in reverse. The motor can be raised by pushing both pedals and then securing with a retention cord, works well. The motor is held in the down position with a magnet that keeps the motor from riding up when in reverse but is easily over come with the application of both pedals to raise the unit. The battery power is sufficient for an afternoon of fishing if not over used. All of the workmanship on the conversion of the motor, control box, and cables is very professional and is a sealed system. I use this in salt and brackish water. I am very pleased with this set up and highly recommend it.
