Bassyaks Kits include a 12 volt battery powered direct drive motor which offers silent operation in both fresh and saltwater. Steering is hands-free with your feet as you would with a rudder. The motor may be raised both vertically and horizontally from the seat, for operating in shallow water or over obstacles, or even clearing the propeller from debris. The motor is removable in 10 seconds for travel or if you just wish to paddle. Bassyaks takes pride in its maneuverability , with instant steerage in forward and reverse and the ability to turn on it own axis.
