Q: A lot of peo­ple are start­ing to use mo­tors on their kayaks. Is this a form of cheat­ing?

GR says: Not re­ally. I have used one oc­ca­sion­ally. They ex­tend the range of the kayak and al­low you to dis­cover and fish new marks and that can never be a bad thing.

There is a school of thought that states if it is not pad­dled then it’s not a kayak, but mo­tors and pedal sys­tems are be­com­ing in­creas­ingly pop­u­lar.

They ap­peal to some and not to oth­ers, but fish­ing and the en­joy­ment gained is a purely sub­jec­tive thing. If you don’t agree with us­ing a mo­tor then don’t use one, but re­spect the choices of oth­ers.
