Take home your catch limit with a buddy after a day in the Sevylor Colorado 2-Person Fishing Kayak. With 18-gauge PVC, a thick tarpaulin bottom and a tough nylon cover, this kayak is durable enough to get you to your favorite out-of-the-way fishing hole. Just in case, though, the multiple air chambers will help you get back to shore. The adjustable seats will keep you paddling comfortably the whole trip. But if you want to move more easily, you can always add the Sevylor trolling motor and store your paddles in the convenient holders. The Berkley Quick Set Rod Holders let you adjust your pole angle for the ultimate hands-free fishing experience. With your hands free, it's easier to take care of your gear, which stores nicely in the mesh pockets or attached to D-rings.

I've noticed a lot of people were trying to mount a trolling motor. I did experimented with different designs and decided with a PVC design.
I bought a $30 28lb trolling motor off of craigslist and created a cross brace out of 1" PVC (I use schedule 80 PVC for unions, much stronger than the typical white PVC you'll find in homedepot). The 1" PVC fits perfectly into the rear fishing rod holders. From there you could build and add unions to make it easier to take apart. I used a 50ah battery (Yes, it could take the weight no problem) in a battery box. I used the 2 strap wrenches to tie down together the trolling motor board, PVC brace, and battery box. I cut some 3/4" birch plywood, stained and painted it with some krylon fusion.Keep in mind, without the cross-brace, the trolling motor has enough torque to force deform the kayak when set on high speed.
I also spray the top of the kayak with Aerospace Protectant Trigger Sprayer after a few outings.
Edit: added photos. The CF # just fell off and I now just keep them in a ziplock bag.
First, the cons:
the bases of the rod holders are indeed an issue. I am 6'3" and try to hold my arms as high as possible and still hit them with the paddle occasionally. The "Berkley Quick Set Rod Holders" that insert into the holder bases feel a bit flimsy and tend to fall out occasionally. The good thing is that the bases are sewn on to the canvas cover and, unless they are glued as well, it should be possible to cut the stitches and get rid of them completely. Have not done this yet.
The rear trolling rod holders have really wide openings - too big for most of the fishing poles one may use on a kayak. Sevylor includes two snugly fitting inserts with reduced holes, which work for some of my fishing rods. Unfortunately, one Ugly Stik rod with cork handle fits tightly into the insert and pulls it out of the base when removing the rod. I am planning to wrap the base and insert with duct tape to address this.
Tracking - I don't think there is any, since the kayak is pretty wide and flat on the bottom, aside from a little removable skeg, but this is likely just me being new to kayaking. Still, I was able to paddle about a mile downstream and return upstream. Slowly, but without real issues.
Boston valves: the two on the right and left chambers are great. The valves are attached to the large molded-in base; cannot lose them. The design of the bottom chamber valve base is different for some reason - the valve is not attached to anything when you unscrew it completely (oh, there is a small PVC collar and leash, but it does not stay attached to the valve opening's tiny ridge). My biggest fear is to lose that valve when I deflate and transport the boat.
Trolling motor mounts: I saw a video from 2013 showing a custom mount of a rear trolling motor using the two motor fittings on each side of the kayak (starboard fittings are shown in the official photo just behind and below the rear paddle holder bracket). Perhaps those people added their own fittings to the port side, but it is also possible that Sevylor changed the design a bit - current model only has two fittings on the starboard side. So, the standard Sevylor side-mounted trolling motor is for right handed people only. I was counting on the fittings being on both sides for a custom motor mount, but have to come up with a different plan now.
Overall, I am pretty happy with the kayak so far. It feels very stable and rugged, weighs only 40lb, and has plenty of space for my long legs. Don't know if the bottom chamber does much, since it feels somewhat soft, but two side chambers keep the kayak very rigid (at recommended 1.5 psi). Never felt like it was sagging in the middle (I weigh 220lb and keep the gear and anchor right next to me for convenience). The seat seems kind of low, but I found it surprisingly comfortable. With the seat cushion inflated, I felt fine after sitting still and fishing for 3-4 hours while at anchor. Being able to straighten my legs completely to where the front seat was supposed to be is the most important thing for my comfort.
Will post updates as I get a bit more experience with this kayak.
