FUEL ECONOMY ESTIMATES

40 - 42 MPG in average use.

Tested figure based on numerous varied speed runs intended to imitate average use. These runs included idling and low speed running, along with at least 60% of operation at cruising speeds over 8 MPH using new 4 stroke motors. Motors from Honda, Suzuki, and Yamaha used for all testing. All test runs were conducted with precisely filled fuel tanks run till empty and recorded using GPS.

Lowest economy observed in testing: 39 MPG

Other testing included cruising at continuous fixed planing speeds (7-9 mph) for 5 - 12 miles. Typical fuel use was 44-48 MPG with no idling.

Highest fuel economy observed 56 MPG on one run at low 4-5 mph speed. That test has not been repeated yet, since such low speed use is probably not the way most people would cruise longer distances.

PERFORMANCE (2 HP class gasoline 4 stroke)

Recommended extended cruising speeds 7 - 9.5 MPH

Top Speed varies with motor and propeller and load

Figures below are with 180-200 lbs load not including motor.

Full Throttle for short distance (1/8 - 1/4 mile): 9.8-10.7 mph

Full Throttle for extended distance 1-2 miles (not recommended by most small engine manufacturers): Suzuki 2.5 HP 11.5 mph using stock prop.

Yamaha 12.5 + mph 7 1/4 pitch prop

Honda 2 HP air cooled with clutch: 12.2 to 13.8 mph depending on water and air temperature. Best performance was at warm water temperatures with our custom 7 inch pitch prop.

WHAT?! A POWERED KAYAK!!! Who Needs A Powered Kayak?

You May, And You Just Don’t Realize The Advantages. I Must Admit I Paddled For Over 30 Years And Was Against The Idea Myself.

FAQ ANSWER - Check out our FAQ for answers to common questions

But As I Found Myself One Day Paddling Against A Stiff 4-5 MPH Tidal Current And A 15 – 25 Knot Head Wind For Over a Mile, I realized That This Might Be a Good Idea. I Almost didn’t Make it back that Day! As I Searched For A Boat That Was Light Enough To Load And Launch Myself, Stable Enough To Feel Safe, And Efficient, I Found This Craft Simply Didn’t Exist. Having Designed A Kayak and Various High Impact, High Strength Epoxy Resin Systems, I Decided To Develop A Suitable Boat. After Nearly 2 Years Of Design, Development, And Testing I Think We Have The Best Truly Solo Craft For Transiting Mild To Moderate (up to 1 to 1 1/2 foot chop) Inland and Coastal Waters.

So Who Needs One?

Bird Watchers, Photographers, Nature Lovers, Fisherman, etc.

If You Want To Investigate Fairly Distant Areas Of Canals, Rivers, Lakes, Bayous, and Small Streams, A Kayak Or Canoe Can Cover Those Areas At A Speed Of About 2- 4 MPH, If You Paddle Constantly, You Would Cover A 10 Mile Trip In 4-5 Hours In A Wide Stable Boat, Such As A Recreational Kayak. A Narrow Touring Kayak Can Improve Upon That Speed, With A Lot Of Work, To A 4-4.5 MPH Average For A Fit Paddler. That is, Of Course, Without Pesky Currents To Slow You Down.

And That Is Without Stopping To Look At The Scenery, Or Stopping To Bird Watch, Fish, Or Photograph, ANYTHING.

And Now You’re Tired.

And The Swinging Paddle Blade Has Usually Scared Off Most Of The Animals You Would Have Liked To Look At.

(I’ve Worked As A Professional Wildlife Photographer For Several Years. ( scottkilgorephotograpy.com ) Birds Are Particularly Disturbed By The Sight Of Swinging Paddles. I Always Had to Stop Paddling And Drift Long Before Reaching Within Range Of Any Birds That Were Not Accustomed To My Presence. Yet The Sound Of a Motor Rarely Bothers Birds In Places Where Motors Are Used.

If You Are Fishing, You Have Spent Most Of Your Time Getting There… Instead Of Fishing.

And If You Are Drift Fishing, You Have Drifted Downriver Where Someone Has To Pick You Up. Wouldn’t It Be Better To Be able To Launch The Boat By Yourself, And Motor Back Upstream AS MANY TIMES AS YOU WANT?
