Buy Bait Boat - Questions and Answers


Since the year 2000, we have specialized in the development and distribution of high-quality bait boats and echo sounders. Meanwhile we are not to be excluded from the high-end sector and offer different models for every requirement. Here you will find the most important questions and answers, which you should read the purchase of the bait boat.

What technical equipment must a bait boat offer?

We place extremely high value on using the best components. Often, modeling is not enough for us and we help ourselves with components from the industry to offer even better and more durable products. Many parts are made exclusively for us, such as our industrial motors, the double ball bearing shaft systems, flanges, adapters, etc.

This offers us and you the certainty that we do not have to adapt any components, but that the components are adapted for our boats. A sign of the highest bait boat building art. And everything from the production of the hull to the assembly of the bait boats 100% "Handbuild in Germany".

What to consider for the bait boat hull?

Our hulls have a 5 year warranty for a reason. Compare our high standard equipment with the German competitors!

Everything we install has already been installed or sold by us thousands of times. We find it completely unnecessary to exchange parts from our boats / kits, mostly you thereby worsen the boat.

Do not believe the Internet heroes or so-called model builders who have once assembled one or two boats, our experience ranges over nearly 20 years of feed boat construction and at least 10,000 bait boats!!! Partwiese our first bait boats are still running.

Which radio system is suitable for me?

With our radio systems, the signals are transmitted digitally and encrypted, so radio interference is impossible. Even if several of the same bait boats are on the water. The first choice in the sector of remote controls.

Likewise, range problems are a thing of the past, we guarantee 1000m. An antenna is no longer necessary on the boat with this technology. Maximum safety and range for your boat.

We trust our standard radio system 100% because these have already been installed thousands of times. For a bait boat, no one needs a radio system for several hundred euros.

Which drive and battery technology?

You can purchase bait boats with screw drive or which with the world-renowned Kehrer Jet drives. Both drives have proven themselves in feed boats and prevailed.

It is very difficult to determine which drive is the better, each user must decide for themselves. In battery technology, the Lipo/LiFePo batteries have prevailed due to your higher power density and lower weight. The disadvantage is, the significantly more expensive purchase price.

But since our XXL bait boats have a high buoyancy and a good payload, nothing speaks against the use of lead batteries. Only the running time is lower, which means you have to change batteries more often.

In return, however, the lead batteries are much cheaper. Lead batteries are not installed in cars for nothing. Here we can not take the decision from you, both systems, both in the drive technology as well as in the battery technology have great advantages.

Kit or ready-built bait boat?

In principle, it should be noted that we offer the same components in our kits as in our finished bait boats. Many components are already pre-prepared (exact length of the shafts, the jets are pre-assembled, motors fit exactly on our connectors, milling for the jets, electronic unit 2020 etc.).

Many customers ask us if it is difficult to build the boats themselves. It is of course crucial to work accurately, set motors plumb, seal everything well, etc. If this is not adhered to, one has later no joy in the finished boat and one has saved in the wrong place.

On the other hand, if one takes some time, the whole thing with understanding and some craftsmanship approaches, one can build his dream boat itself, saves money and what is very important, if something goes defective, one can repair it mostly in the shortest time again itself. Even after years.

Meanwhile, many instructions exist on the net and in many clubs are mounted in larger groups our boats. This is of course optimal and price / performance unbeatable. Gladly we stand to you also with the building with advice and act to the side. Also use our assembly service when ordering, we will be happy to assemble the lower or upper shell before.

Brushless or brushed motors?

We have made many tests with different brushless motors, the result is that the significant additional costs of brushless technology in no case justifies the technical difference.

Often it is so that brushless motors consume more power at the same performance and are more vulnerable when it comes to longevity. A big disadvantage is also that the motors are often much louder than conventional motors.

In this time we have tens of thousands of motors installed! Therefore, we rely quite clearly on our industrial brush motors. The guarantor for a long life of our boats, optimized for performance and low power consumption.

Which depth sounder or autopilot should I choose?

An important point is the choice of the depth sounder. We install echosounders/AP's of the company Toslon, these are easy to use and are always up to date. Likewise no disturbances take place among the individual components.

Trigger mechanism for feed flaps magnetically or servo controlled?

We could find no magnetic trigger systems, which work more surely and more quietly than the control with a servo. Often one hears or reads in forums that food collects at the magnets and the flaps thereby unintentionally open or the release is much too loud and has a scare effect on the carp. We do not want that, so we rely exclusively on the proven technology of the digital servo's.

Advantage of our digital 2.4 Ghz radio system for feed boats

With our radio systems, the signals are transmitted digitally and encrypted, so radio interference is impossible. Even if several of the same boats are on the water. The first choice in the sector of remote controls.

Range problems are a thing of the past, we guarantee 1000 m. An antenna is no longer necessary on the boat with this technology. Maximum safety and range for your boat. The 2.4 Ghz technology will replace all other radio systems on high-quality feed boats in the future.

And now again: Kit or ready-assembled baitboat?

In principle, it should be noted that we offer the same components in our kits as in our finished bait boats. Many components are already pre-prepared (exact length of the shafts, the jets are pre-assembled, motors fit exactly on our connectors, milling for the jets, dimmable light system, etc.)

Many customers ask us if it is difficult to build the boats themselves. It is of course crucial to work accurately, put motors plumb, seal everything well, etc.

If this is not adhered to, you will not enjoy the finished boat later and you have saved in the wrong place. On the other hand, if you take some time, the whole thing with sense and some craftsmanship approaches, you can build your dream boat yourself, save money and what is very important, if something goes wrong, you can mostly repair it yourself in the shortest time. Even after years.

Meanwhile, many instructions exist on the net and in many clubs are mounted in larger groups our boats. This is of course optimal and price performance unbeatable. We are also happy to help you with the construction with words and deeds. Also take advantage of our assembly service when ordering, we are happy to assemble the lower or upper shell before.

Motors in brushless or brush technology?

We have made many tests with different brushless motors, the result is that the significant additional costs of brushless technology in no case justifies the technical difference. It is often the case that brushless motors consume more power for the same performance and are more vulnerable when it comes to longevity. A major disadvantage is also that the motors are often significantly louder than conventional motors.

Just one example, we have since the year 2000 replaced exactly two motors in our boats, both had bearing damage. Both were installed in do-it-yourself kits. In this time we have installed tens of thousands of engines! Therefore, we clearly rely on our industrial motors. The guarantor for a long life of our boats, optimized for performance and low power consumption.

Which echo sounder?

An important point is the choice of echo sounder. we recommend the Toslon radio echo sounder and autopilot.
