The Camo WaterFowl Edition helps to give hunters the maximum concealment with its Advantage Camo Pattern. The camouflage artwork will help with stealth to get into the hot spots, ending the day with more fish or birds in the boat.

Because these hand steer motors are only available in 12 volts anyone can manage them. It’s this simplicity that makes them so widely accepted by anglers and boaters.


Their popularity among buyers can be found at  many review sites. Most buyers are very positive about their purchases rating the Endura 30 and c2 30 a consistent very high 4.5 to 5 stars. The Endura 30 is the top dog receiving the most reviews. ( 30lb thrust with a 30″ shaft is this combination)

To accomodate these motors you will have to add a transom to your canoe or kayack, either permanent or portable.
