A new paddle craft coming this fall

Kaku has introduced another totally unique paddle craft. Their Wahoo kayak was the perfect answer to a cross between a SUP and kayak. Now they have introduced the Voodoo. Is it a micro skiff? Is it a kayak? Is it a SUP? As the press release says, “Kaku paddle crafts always seem to have identity problems.” We’re totally OK with that.

Read what Kaku has to say about the Voodoo below:

Two Power Pole mounts?!!

SUP? KAYAK? MICRO SKIFF? Kaku paddle craft always seem to have identity issues. The new Voodoo takes it to a whole new level. The Voodoo simply offers so many options for the finicky kayak fisherman. The Voodoo has off the charts stability, paddles well while standing or seated in a chair that offers two seating positions as well as a sight casting/poling platform without having to make a single adjustment. The Chair is side mounted to 30”Aluminum top load gear tracks, giving the angler the ability to adjust the chair forward or backward depending on load and weight disbursement. The side mounts allow for the track to remain available for mounting a cup holder,  paddle holder, rod holder or any other necessary item you desire on the remaining track.

The chair on this new paddle craft is a one of a kind, never before seen on the market multi-purpose seat. Designed to have a wide sitting area to give the angler more room to move around without feeling cramped. The seat is made of strong tubing material, and can also be used as a standing platform, giving the angler that extra added advantage for sight casting your favorite fish species. The seat also features a leaning post which is typically seen on flats boats, giving the angler a little higher seating position. All designed to give the angler more options and a better experience when out on the water, without having to change the seat around, giving the angler more time casting.

The stern of the new VooDoo features five molded-in micro Power Pole mounts. Why so many? The VooDoo allows for single or dual Power-Pole Micro mounts. The options also include the ability to add motorized capability along with Power Pole Micro mounts. The unused mounts are covered with starboard. Starboard also offers great mounting options for other accessories without having to screw or drill into the hull.

The voodoo has large SUP (Stand Up Paddleboard) style open deck in front of voodoo seat and plenty of room behind it for a good sized cooler. A large oval hatch towards front offers plenty of storage at the bow for those overnight paddle fishing trips. An additional 8 inch round locking hatch located at the stern for additional storage.

Kaku President, Kevin Hawkins, “I designed the Voodoo for the sportsman fisherman that absolutely loves sight casting big fish from a paddle craft. That want a paddle craft stable enough to stand high, but stills paddles well, while offering the ability to increase their range with some power when necessary. The Voodoo is an amazing fishing paddle craft first with great power abilities giving the angler a range of options.”
