SOAR’s new motor mount is a wonderful upgrade from our previous version. Made of tail pipe, the motor mount is a free standing unit, meaning it does not clamp or hook onto the SOAR canoe. The SOAR canoe inflates around the motor mount, providing excellent rigidity to the full length of the hull. No floor board is needed. Installation takes 5 minutes. The motor mount weighs 30 lbs and breaks down into a very small carrying case. We recommend any short shaft gas motor up to 5 hp. Fits only the S12, S14 and S16 models. Motor mounts for the Pro Pioneer are also available. When ordering, please let us know if you intend to use the motor mount w/ either of these two models.
