I have a Hobie Quest 13″ would any of these kits work for me?
What about the Adventure??? Any plans???
We have a kit, the problem is that it involves removing the Twist & Stow rudder, which makes the steering sluggish if you want to use the Mirage dirve without the motor operating. The rudder could be replaced in 5 minutes
I have a Hobie outback T&S rudder removed bassyak motor and kit. I have not installed it yet and recently on a fishing trip in the kelp, I wanted to lift my rudder and could not because it does not work real well. My concern is that I want to paddle over kelp beds and cannot have my rudder down or motor. I need an easy lift system. Do you have any ideas to add something to my existing kit or can I trade it in for the old style kit. I have not used my existing kit and it is still in the box new. What do you suggest?
Scott, with the Bassyaks kit you’ll have an assist rope to pull the motor up and for lowering. You’ll have no problem raising the motor
I have an Oasis, and am thinking about mounting a trolling motor off the side so I can easily raise it and stow it across the gunwales. Please explain to me why the motor on the stern is “the ONLY way to go”. Thanks!
