” Sean Hummel, president of Atlantic Extreme Watersports in Poquoson, Virginia, thinks so. Hummel runs one of the few companies that sell motor-powered kayaks, but it might be the first to market them for fishermen.
The Jet Kayak features a 9.5-horsepower, electric-start engine capable of trolling at 2 mph, plus much higher speeds that max out near 25 mph. With a run time of two hours at wide-open throttle, Hummel says that’s a range of 30 to 40 miles.
“The Jet Kayak is quieter then any personal watercraft out there,” says Hummel. “We were using it on the Chesapeake Bay and had a pod of 20 to 30 dolphins swimming on all sides. They weren’t disturbed by the noise.” “

” When the boat-show season ramps up each fall, we begin sensing trends within the industry. As we gather details for our annual preview, those vague feelings solidify. For instance, this year, we included a category new to these listings — dual-console boats. Manufacturers have seen the need to blend multiple family uses into a fishing vessel; the DC fits that bill.
You’ll also see a few reintroductions of boats that were announced in 2012 but never brought to market. A few more are heavily updated models whose builders chose not to rename the lines. This year, we present 34 new boats — from an 18-foot skiff to a 47-foot express.”
