The Torqeedo Kayak Ultralight 403 Outboard motor is designed for use on kayaks and other very light boats. The unit consists of a shaft, a lithium-manganese battery, and a remote throttle.
A unique mounting system permits the Ultralight electric outboard to attach to almost any rigid kayak. The Torqeedo Ultralight can be tilted into and out of the water during use and is made to be completely waterproof, i.e. it will even operate under water.

Torquedo Kayack motor QC700
Have the motor mounted on a QC700. Full speed with fresh battery is 6.1 miles an hour. Had to machine an extension to extend the motor mount to get the unit lower in the water, otherwise it cavitates and can not get above 3.5 miles an hour. Love the unit so far, great range extender.
