A remarkably simple, one-hand stow mechanism gets Riptide Transom in and out of the water in no time. Just pull up and forward to stow the motor with no buttons or release levers. Then when it’s time to go, use the easy-access thumb release to deploy Riptide Transom into any of ten different positions.
The innovative collar above the Riptide Transom mount allows you to adjust steering tension precisely to your desired level. Keep it loose for effortless steering or tighten it down to keep Riptide Transom in place, allowing for true vertical stowing.
Quick-Lock Cam Depth Adjuster - This easy-to-use adjuster lets you change depths simply and securely, and it locks in tight to keep your motor right where you want it.
Tilt-Extend Tiller - Riptide Transom’s innovative, comfortable tiller handle can both tilt (up to 45º) and extend (up to 6") for maximum control to fit any style of fishing.
