    The NK180 trolling motor will bolt directly to a 4 bolt powerpole style stern mount, or can be installed into the deck of a kayak (see fitment guide here). The mount pivots freely to pass over underwater obstacles, but the durable aluminum motor head is ready for the ones you don't see. Steering cables can be setup to turn the motor like a rudder using your kayaks OEM mounted foot braces, or a pin can lock the motor in a forward drive position for use on sups and inflatable kayaks. Reverse is enabled with a pull cord which locks the motor in a deployed position, keeping the propeller from lifting out of the water while you back your way out of trouble.

    Coming from a Torqeedo, this NK180 is so much more powerful and quiet. At first I wasn't sold on the fact that it doesn't come with a battery, but found that having a stand-alone battery (instead of some proprietary one) allows me to run ALL of my electronics with just two 12V batteries. I couldn't run LED lights off of my Torqeedo battery. Love this motor and highly recommend, especially for tournament fishing!
