I saw a post earlier today on Gizmodo and just shook my head. Personally, I love taking the kayak out and hitting the water, and part of the fun for me is the physical exercise involved with paddling my boat around. It’s fun, and it’s a great workout.
Of course, not everyone feels that way, which is why we now have this solar-powered kayak that uses three solar panels to power a near-silent electric trolling motor, which puts out 36 pounds of thrust to motor your kayak around whatever body of water you decide to drop it in.
The entire unit costs $1100, not including a kayak. It attaches to your existing boat and turns into a catamaran, it would seem. Not sure why you would spend that kind of cash on something like this when you could just have a small fishing boat and accomplish the same thing, but whatever floats your boat. Pun fully intended. 😉
