Approved

This review is for the 55# unit that I’ve used for 4 years. It’s in an Old Town 10.6’ Topwater Kayak. I have a Dakota Lithium 12 Volt 54amh battery. I fish the intracoastal waters of Jacksonville, Fl and it can kick up quickly. Not a problem. You’ll get wet, but this motor will get you wherever you need to be. I use it all day and it keeps chugging. . In choppy headwinds, it gets me home without any problem. It’s in saltwater all the time and you’d never know. The circuit breaker is a problem and rusted out quickly, but everything else was perfect. 3 blade prop has no nicks, in spite of hitting bottom more than a few times. I would not use a lead acid battery (initially I did) as the weight is triple the lithium, and performance weakens as the battery cycles.

Motor is decent, customer service not so much....

I was calling to see if I can get some help with changing the tiller handle in the opposite direction that it comes stock so I can mount it on the front of my kayak, but their phones are all static or they don't connect. The hold music and message are all clear but the actual calls are not any good. Chat has not been helpful either. The motor runs fine as is though.

Good motors but do not use lithium batteries

From what I have learned running mine is they will run fine on lithium batteries but being they are not brushless motors and they will not take advantage of the longer life of a lithium battery and is probably why they do not recommend using lithium. Just wanted to share this in case someone was planning to use a lithium battery and let them know these motors will work with them but it is definitely not worth the added expense of buying a lithium battery.

Excellent Kayak Motor

I installed the 55 thrust on my Kilroy kayak for trolling and checking jug lines. What a great piece of equipment for a kayak! Light weight, easy to hook up and take down, excellent speed options for trolling and moving across the lake. I really like the motor and highly recommend!

NK-300

We will be receiving I think our 5th NK-300. As a kayak dealer I really don’t need to outfit crazy fishing kayaks or sell motors . But with NuCanoe ‘s electric propulsion system paired with the new Newport Vessels NK-300, kayaking is getting a bit crazy and I am a 70 year old that loves going fast.

Delivery

A bit concerned. Box was smashed in on one long side as pointed out by delivery driver. Turns out the product was undamaged in spite of one side being completely open due to the smash. Fortunately the delivery driver noticed this damage at an early stage of delivery and used extra careful handing until delivered to me. Perhaps it’s worth consideration to review the packaging process going forward.
