BassYaks Hands Free Motor on the Frontier

Lake Williams, York, PA -

The Bass Yaks motor arrived on Monday, and after a bit of tinkering, all is set and ready to go!  The motor featured here is a 45lb thrust MinnKota motor.  It installs on the Frontier 12 in around 5 minutes.  The only drilling or screwing required is for a couple pad eyes that serve as line guides.  Other than that, it is all plug & play.

According to our GPS, we average 4.5mph over a .2 mile stretch.  The motor has plenty of power to get you around quickly & easily.

The Components

The adapted MinnKota motor clamps to the Frontier Motor Mount.  The steering cables connect on the motor shaft.

The steering is controlled by two pedals that attached into the Freedom Track.  They can be repositioned or removed in seconds.

Group size 27 Battery Box houses battery & power control unit.

Please be aware that Mr Komarinetz is a very hard man to deal with. I placed an order and was given a expected shipping date of about 2 1/2 weeks. He charged my credit card at time of order. After waiting almost a month I tried to contact him with no response. Only after sending an email and writing ORDER on the subject line did he respond. Here is his responce: Mark maybe you should realize some things are out of my control, I will refund your payment today. Witch he did a week later!!!! So after a month+ of waiting I got nothing. Good luck if you order one.

Mark, We tried to contact you about your order for a Ocean Kayaks MALIBU XL2 D.I.Y kit but received this email back :
Mail server for "embarqmail.com" unreachable for too long >

Rather than to disappoint you any further I felt is was better to return your payment, that's why it took 1 week to refund you)
We have no control of the email account you gave us.
Bassyaks has 100's of satisfied customers out there, just ask someone who owns one.
