they look a lot like the plywood race boats my cousins used to build. a nice boat, but is it a kayak? i guess if your back up paddle has a blade at both ends. i like most of it`s design except the stern. it looks like a wave would roll up the stern but it is quite high, that may make a difference.
i saw one that might have been one of these or some other motorised design in the hammond once. i never got as chance to talk to the person about it but they seemed to have great control. i wondered how slow they could go...?

I'd like to try one. There are alot of places I'd like to try fishing and that boat might just be the ticket. I'd have to come up with the $4000.00 or so first though.

i would look at peddal power first. they both weight a lot more than most kayaks.

I don't know anything specific about those kayaks. However if you are looking at $4000, I'd recommend taking a long look at the Ocean Kayak Torque first. Here is a really good video talking about it's features:

They are a lot cheaper, as Eco-Logical Adventures in Oromocto lists them on their website for $2100. http://www.ecologicaladventures.ca/content/16180 (scroll down almost to the bottom for the torque)

I've not used the tourque, but Ocean Kayak does make great kayaks for fishing. I've had a Trident 13 for 2 years and love it!

Those are pretty cool kayaks; should be great for trolling but I don't think they'd take me upstream on the rivers I fish. I'm more interested in being able to access salmon pools and not necesarily fishing/trolling from the craft itself. The Mokai has a 7 hp subaru 4-stroke which will handle some serious current and run 8hrs on one tank of fuel. Thanks for posting though, I had never seen the Torque.

That's fair! I agree it wouldn't likely be the best choice for what you want though. If you do go for the Mokai, I'd love to hear how it works for you!
