Been considering the Electric Kayak Company,BassYak or Torqueedo 403 for my Commander 120. Have done some research on both and both set ups have pros and cons. Torqueedo 403 obviously huge plus is the weight of the unit, 15-20 lbs, with lithium battery but is costly at $1800. Bassyak looks like a solid unit but concerned with weight of the battery. Price without the battery is around $900.00. If you purchase the optional Lithium battery at $600.00, price for Bassyak is not considerably less than Torqueedo. Not much information around regarding Electric Kayak Company setups, I know B&C power yaks in Plam Harbor, FL, near Tampa, do installs of the set ups from Electric Kayak Company.
Majority of use will be in salt, so not sure if the trolling motor set ups are more durable than the Torqueedo set up.
Anyone have opinions or experience with either of these setups.
Thanks

I did a diy trolling motor for 2 Jackson Cudas and a Ride. The 400lb weight capacity for your yak should leave plenty of room for gear. I use group 27 full size batteries on my yaks. With foot controlled steering.
If you search here in forums I posted pics. I have less than $500.00 total each invested in my setups. The last one I did is a minnkota riptide saltwater motor.
If you're slightly handy it should be relatively simple.

I enjoy the paddle and have never needed or desired to have an electric motor for my outfit. ... battery to move too. If you satify that criteria, the size of motor you have in mind will do the trick.
