The Ocean Kayak Torque Motorized Kayak has been upgraded for 2013 with the new comfort Hybrid Seat and new ModPod for even more angling configurations. Combine that with two flush mount rod holders, paddle keepers, a large bow hatch, and bungee tank well and the Torque is a fishing machine. Designed around the Minn Kota motor and its innovative Maximizer technology, the Ocean Kayak Torque puts all of the power right at your fingertips. With infinitely variable speed control you can troll for fish at your own pace. Fishing in tight spots? Don't worry, you can hit reverse and your ability to maneuver just got easier. And, if you'd rather paddle, simply remove the motor, drop in the skeg, grab a paddle and you're all set. The Ocean Kayak Torque is so much fun you may even put your fishing pole down and just sit back to enjoy the ride. Discontinued 2013 model.

Review: The Ocean Kayak is everything it states. the Ack people were more than willing to go overboard(so to speak) to help or answer any questions I had. Kayak was shipped from texas to New York no Problem!!

Review: I LOVE this boat! I am large and needed a kayak that had a large capacity. This yak carries me easily and it is comfortable and very responsive. The motor makes fishing a true delight, and also makes it easy to get through current or move easy on windy days on a lake. When I want to exercise and paddle, it is just as easy to paddle and maneuver. It is very well made, and the rod pod rocks! The front hatch is huge. I do kind of wish the battery compartment was in the back and the motor insert was where the battery is to make it easier to access and remove, and also to allow that battery area to be another storage compartment, but that is probably a design stability issue. I would definitely buy this kayak again.

Review: Love this thing...amazingly easy to control and navigate. The motor and rudder system seem to work in harmony very well. Very stable on the water despite the narrow hull design. It is a bit heavy to load and launch, but I purchased a wheel cart and it made it very easy to handle. I was considering a power boat, but honestly, who needs the constant maintenance and water pollution I live on the Indian River, and do not want to contribute to any hydrocarbon pollution on the water!. Extremely quiet and agile. You will not regret buying this beauty!

Review: I have now had my Torque for 2 years and I have down graded it by 1 star. Issues: Most MinKoda dealers dont know how to work or get replacement parts for the motor and a new one you can only get through Ocean Kayak and with shipping runs about $650.00 because they force you to buy the black skeg with the motor. Second issue the plug in spring will rust out and the connection at the stern transom and plug work loose. It also looses connection often even if it is pluged in correctly. Since it is at the very back end of the kayak working your way around in the seat faceing aft and then leaning back to juggle the plug about is just a pain in the you know what. 3rd the kayak should have had two side handles to carry it on each side. 4th the rudder cable connections are not made off well and cause fish hooking and get shabbie looking. The motor is a 36lbs thrust but it is one of minkodas 40 models and I believe it should be one model up having something like 40-44 pounds of thrust verses the 36 it currently has. The battery box cover needs to be strong enough able to mount items to because even with extension arms mounting them forward on the kayak is a long reach. I think the butt seating is a bit to low even with a pad. I almost sit in it and have my feet even to elaveted I think they could make it sit a little bit higher. I also agree with the other reviewers about battery life. I fish about 15 hours on my battery which is the Sears Diehard Gel battery it is a (Med Size Battery) so that part rocks. I would sugest that they build the battery box for it longer so you could slide the battery a little bit forward so you could keep some other small items in the center compartment 4 to 6 inches would be a real bonus. Draft though is its largest downfall. Needed 2 feet of water to get around in can pose a chalange when hunting for fish along the flats of the gulf coast I wish there was a way to retract the prop like in the bassyacks system. Having said all of the things I said I still love being able to move about and fish verses paddle and fumble around and try to fish with a paddle in your way. I am got in to kayaks to fish not paddle so that is a big plus for me. Perhaps next time they go through a design over haul I'll get an invite to add my 2 cents and a demo verson to test out. Mostly my issues are little tweaking ones that could improve on a good thing. Hope this has helped you and best of luck with yours.
