Bruce Kaye had more than just a passion for building and designing. He would create tools himself for his shop, as well as re-power dump trucks for his trucking business with big block engines. This is where Bruce really began tinkering with gears, his real knack.
Bruce took what he learned from re-gearng heavy duty trucks and started applying it to airboats, which at the time didn't have many gear reduction options on the market. The K-Way was his first production gearbox and many are still in service today.
