Hello All,

The Native Titan Propel (bass boat/Pro Angler competitor) is being shown at OR this week. 

I don't have all of the stats on the boat since it is not a production boat and is still in fiberglass molding stage, but the general info is this:
Width - approx 42" wide.
Length - 13.5'
Weight - don't ask, you won't be happy with the answer
Cost - It's gonna be expensive, but I'm sure it will be comparable to the Hobie Pro Angler series.

Other than that, the boat is still in design phase and they are working on some of the items.  If you have any comments or questions feel free to contact me and I can pass them on to R&D.

Features -
Elevated seat, adjustable fore and aft on track.
Integrated horizontal storage for rods
Forward and reverse pedal drive, like always
Transducer scupper is in design phases to make it compatible with all of your favorite FFs, including Raymarine Dragonfly and Lowrance TotalScan transducers.
No separation for tankwell, boat will be open deck design for easier access and have flat decks for standing.
Boat will work with new adjustable standup bar made by yakattack
Same integrated rudder as on other Propel models

Get more info by following Native's facebook page at:
https://www.facebook.com/nativewatercraft/

The official reveal I believe is tomorrow.

Here's more details.

42" wide! Insane! Edit-correction the boat is 42" wide, rapidmedia's article is incorrect.

You're likely to get a nose bleed sitting in that high seat...

I'm personally most interested in the new thermoformed pedal drive. Haven't seen much info on that yet, but 56lb pedal drive sounds like it would fly on the water. Any inside scoop on that Ben?

Nothing yet.  They did just release some more pictures of it on Facebook an hour or two ago. it looks really nice with the blue color.  the original white prototype looked terrible but with the blue it looks much better, and you can see the features a lot easier.
