As youprobably know by now, I spend way too much time surfing the web looking at what’s new in the kayak fishing world.  I came across this kayak and just had to share.  The Volt Boat K1 is like the “Cadillac” of the kayak fishing boats.  

I have not had the opportunity to demo this kayak yet but I have to say that I think that it looks pretty cool.   LCD screen, Joy stick, auto pilot, Flux capacitor (just kidding on that last one).  Seriously though, for a fishing kayak this thing looks awesome.  

The specifications are listed below, along with a few pictures and a video.  Check it out and let us know your thoughts.

Wow! I want one. I cant emagine how much that kayak cost. Probably better of buying a flats boat

They are doing pre-orders now for $99.00 but the full price when it's available in the spring is listed as $2,995.00

I think I will wait to purchase mine. maybe give it a few years to work out the bugs.
 
 
# Ryan Ellis 2011-05-19 20:42
Actually,
The few years have been put in up front. We've been at it for 5, mostly because of the overwhelming liability of having to keep people safe on the water.

In the spirit of Keep It Simple Stupid, I'm not a big fan of the electric drive. But if any of you decide to go that route, can I get a tow?

Agreed, wait to work ou bugs and definately "could I get a tow?" I do wonder about efects of saltwater on electronics and connections.

We've been "ready" and testing for 2 years as a matter of fact. We can't afford the liability of stranding people. We use a mil spec corrosion proofing spray to seal the electronics. It's been a big concern for us -- like it is for the navy.

    • 303 is good, but expensive. Starbrite makes a kayak surface protect product that is less expensive and just as good, IMO.
