New Gear: An Electric-Powered Kayak for Anglers

May 1, 2009 By: Marshall Cutchin

Dragonfly Boatworks, who makes custom technical skiffs for saltwater anglers, sent us a link to an interesting new product video yesterday. The “Elek-trek” fishing kayak is a battery-powered craft with a sharp-entry bow that transitions into a rolled bottom and is extremely quiet. As you can see in the video, this vessel scoots right along and uses a “tunnel” to feed water to the prop so that the craft can go very shallow. The vessel weighs approximately ninety pounds with battery and trolling motor.
