I wanted a kayak that paddled well, but was stable enough to fish out of easily, and being able to put a gas engine on it is a huge bonus.
The kayak has worked well. My dad, who lives in Minnesota, has tipping trouble with standard kayaks, and this worked well for him. My sister also took my nephew out in it.
I didn’t get much paddling time in it, but on the first time, I paddled 200 feet or so from shore, stood up, and paddled back.
I outfitted it with a 2.5hp water cooled Lehr propane engine with a 15″ propeller shaft. I like a water cooled just for the lower noise level.
Here’s a picture and video from throwing the engine and outriggers on and trying it.
