Illustration for article titled A Motorized Kayak For When Youre Too Pooped To Paddle

Kayaking and canoeing are supposed to be all about just you and the water. No distractions, no risk of crashing, and definitely no motors. But why limit your range of exploration to your stamina when the Mokai ES-Kape kayak features a hidden electric motor propelling you as far and as long as the battery holds up. four-stroke jet-drive gas engine propelling you as far as a full tank will take you.


The ES-Kape is actually the latest version of the Mokai, and features a lighter and stiffer hull, and a new modular design that disassembles and stashes away inside itself for easy transport. Re-assembly takes just a couple of minutes with no extra tools required, and before your $4,800 check clears you'll be cruising across the lake unhampered by your inability to properly use a paddle.

Pretty sure a motorized anything can no longer safely be called a kayak/canoe. Given that the definitions of both rely on paddling.

Certainly there will be some "technicality" that allows it - but really, just no. Unless the motor powers physical paddles! But then we'd just call it a paddle boat . Damn it...
