In most states, you can get a BUI (Boating Under the Influence) or BWI (Boating While Intoxicated), the boating equivalent of a DUI (Driving Under the Influence), while operating a kayak or other watercraft propelled by motor, wind, paddle or oar on public waters with a BAL of 0.08% or greater.
The best motor mount kits are those specifically designed and tested by the boat’s manufacturer. This offers a level of security that isn’t available with an after-market motor mount or DIY project, so I’ll be sticking to manufacturer options for safety purposes.

Many people who get into kayaking start out alone. But kayaking alone isn’t always safe or fun. This is where choosing a kayaking group or club comes in. Joining other paddlers on the water provides a wonderful sense of community and a great way to bond with new friends with similar interests.
Though I’ve listed nine ways to find kayak groups near you, online community kayak groups and kayak clubs are two of the easiest ways to find fellow paddlers. Searching for kayak groups online on Meetup.com, Facebook, and forums like Reddit and Quora will rapidly lead you to groups that offer learning, events, and paddling opportunities in your area.
Kayaking groups provide the benefit of community with other paddlers who are open to building new friendships with like-minded paddlers who have an interest in safety, education, competitions, exploration, leisurely paddles, stewardship opportunities, and motivating others.
