Step 2: Foot pedals

Use the provided red tube to connect the wire on the pedal without getting stuck.  Take your own time and fix it properly.

Step 3: Wiring setup

Don’t change the tighten measure and avoid to loosen any parts on the motor. An engineer will know the measurement and built the motor with the correct tighten screws and the average of plastic and other parts. Visualize the measure of the motor and take lots of information about the wiring concept to make a draw out the wire placements.

Step 4: things to avoiddoing

Avoid using the wrong gauge wires to prevent the malfunctioning process and the failure of the equipment. Don’t use the casing products to store the wire gauge; the wire cutting steps result badly while working on going for fishing.

Step 5: method to mount the motor on the boat

On the high portion of the kayak, the access length of the trolling motor tube is connected with the down faced fibreglass post will get a stick.  Without cutting the wires, cut the fibreglass tube carefully to look the streamline on the kayak.  Remember salt water is a good electrode of electricity; make overall changes without the harmful methods.

Step 6: Clamps to cut and not to cut

The One cut and one not cut motors are used in a kayak. Measure the clamps measurement twice before cutting else keep the clamps off and then make the setup without any difficulties and hold the adjustment plate wisely.

Step 7: Setup for the gear selector

To use as a normal boat selector kept the original head part together and take off the extended wire and slaps. Use the long handle to access the desired direction with speed.

Use the above steps to mount the trolling motor most easily and try new ways to move on the water with faster hitting without cutting the wires like what you have mounted.

We’ve designed this family daytrip to give your family a safe adventure out in the protected island waters and channels near our Centre.

To do that, we’ll gather first at our Paddling Centre on Cole Lake for introductions and orientation to the kayaks. We’ll make sure everyone is in a boat that fits them properly, and in some cases we’ll put the younger ones with an adult in a tandem (double). We’ll cover basic strokes and safety including asking everyone to do a wet exit – which is really quite fun and simple to do.

Once we get off the water, dried off, snacked, and loaded up – we’ll drive to our put in & head out to the islands for the rest of the day. Bring your own picnic lunch for your family, and we’ll make sure there’s time for swimming in the crystal clear island waters. We want the children to have a good time, so the emphasis will be on going at their pace.
