I have been looking to get into kayaking and found myself drawn to the uniqueness of the Raptor SOT. I am also considering a Hobie Mirage Revolution 13. Just wondering if there is a pedal drive option in the works for the raptor? Maybe it's the former cyclist in me that gravitates toward a pedal system lol

I have pondered this several times, but I don't think Jim is coming out with it anytime soon.

An alternative is the Native kayaks.  Haven't tried one myself ... don't think it's for me ... but an option to look at if you like pedal drive.

I like them, Native has quite the set up. I want to see them get a better hull that cuts water better.... Otherwise you couldn't go wrong buying one... Those that have them love them even 6 mo's later  :smt044 :smt044 :smt044

Stay tuned...    For the past several months I've been VERY busy.   :smt003       

    Baby's in the oven and it's like 4 months along.    Pedal,,, Paddle,,, Motor or Sail.       The G2  with a   410 lb weight capacity is due for delivery in 5 months.       I feel like a proud papa already.  :smt044

Are you willing to pay the "expedite" fee? (j/k)  :smt003

          Start saving now... It'll be well worth the price.           Video presentation before Christmas arrives..  Possibly before Thanksgiving.         

  Spent long hours on this project... missed out on all the tournaments,  :smt010   lost fishing days, etc  have kept me out of touch with all the happenings at NCKA     I'm overdue for some OTW therapy.
