Watersnake Universal Motor Mount

A product so new, Watersnake had no details other than the photos I was able to get.  The new universal motor mount will make powering your kayak as easy as any other kit, and it's very easily removed for times when you don't need.


_MG_8322_MG_8323The Watersnake Universal Kayak Motor Mount Installed with just screws into the kayak.  One pair provides support for the main bracket at the forward end of the unit.  Just behind that, a rubber base clips the rest of the unit into place, requiring just one screw for each.

The center brace is adjustable, and, besides providing additional support, adjusts the width of the motor mount system to your specific kayak.  Naturally, installers will need to test fit the motor mount and make adjustments as necessary to ensure a proper fit before drilling holes for the Watersnake motor mount.

At the rear, aditional braces allows the installer to properly set the actual motor mount to a verticle angle. The Watersnake motor mount installs in just about 30 minutes, and, once all the necessary hardware is in place, the whole unit can be removed in just minutes to make transporting your kayak easy.

The Watersnake kayak motor mount will be available sometime in 2012. Stay tuned to the Watersnake website at www.WatersnakeUSA.com.
