Hi all,

Native is introducing a new kayak for 2017 that they are currently in the process of designing.  It will be a Native Skimmer 116 Angler edition, but with a new seat pan base to accommodate Native's First Class Seat (lawn chair style).

This should be an excellent paddle craft for small water, and will be very light.  While its not in production yet, it should be similar in weight and size to the current Hurricane Skimmer 116, with maybe a <10lb increase due to the weight of the seat itself (they weigh approx 5lbs).

Currently, the Skimmer 116 specs are:
Weight - 42lbs
Length - 11'6"
Width - 30.5"
Capacity - 300lbs

I would think that the new Skimmer 116 will be slightly wider, which means with seat and extra width it would weigh in right about 50lbs including seat. In addition, the angler package will include:
-Anchor Trolley kit installed
-Yak attack GT 90 Plastic Rail 2 x 12" and 3 x 8" sections
-Yak attack Zooka Tube with ball mount

Thanks,
Ben
