MOTORS : Electric
We stock electric trolling motors from Minn Kota. Their Riptide offers a solid saltwater-rated trolling motor perfect as a secondary motor for a Gheenoe, or a propulsion option on a kayak or canoe. We also stock the Helix MD, a proprietary motor drive system built by Torqeedo designed for seamless integration into select Wilderness System’s kayaks.
MINN KOTA : RIPTIDE
The Minn Kota Riptide is a saltwater-rated trolling motor great for a variety of applications, including kayaks, canoes, and Gheenoes. The Riptide features a telescopic handle, adjustable height mount, and an integrated battery meter. Your battery should be the last of your worries on the water, that is why the Riptide features an integrated Digital Maximizer, making sure no energy is wasted, getting the most out of each charge. You can further control how much power you draw with the Riptide’s Five Forward, Three Reverse variable controls.
We stock the Minn Kota Riptide in both 45lb and 55lb thrust sizes, but can order larger motors when desired.

WILDERNESS SYSTEMS : HELIX MD
The Helix MD is the pinnacle in electric trolling motor technology. This motor is crafted by Torqeedo to seamlessly integrate with a selection of Wilderness Systems kayaks, including the ATAK, Radar, Tarpon 130X, and Thresher. Weighing only 15lbs in total (battery and motor), the Helix MD is incredibly easy to portage (thanks in part to its Lithium Ion battery), and effortlessly drops in your fishing kayak for an alternative to paddling. The Helix MD can reach top speeds of 6mph on the water, and boasts a range of around 20 miles.
The one addition we suggest when installing the Helix MD to your kayak is a rudder, making your motor system hands-free with rudder-controlled steering.
