Spamming of Native continues...

I took the Native Watercraft Manta Ray Propel 12 out to my local lake for a short fishing trip, and took this video about the kayak and its speed. I was able to sustain GPS speed from 4.2-4.6mph with moderate effort, pushing up to about 5.2mph at high effort. The kayak accelerates very well and its hull just cuts right through the water unlike its big brother the Slayer Propel 13. Sorry about the two fishfinder setup, I have been having problems with my HDS7 and took it out with me to test it out. GPS Speed should be accurate though.

So stoked on how this boat pedals through the water. I had it out for my first time at Crabfest and was impressed by how it cut the water. 4.5MPH is fast in a kayak. My 16' Sea Kayak cruises at 5mph.
