A Native Watercraft Native Manta Ray 11 arrived earlier this week. I have tried her on the driveway and she fits, but comments about comfort and stability are reserved until the maiden voyage. She comes rigged a little better than a standard kayak, but I consider this an entry level fishing yak.
One stipulation of the purchase was it would fit in the garage with both cars, or it wouldn't be her car on the street. So today I spent some time building a rack to hold the yak above my boat. The kayak only weighs 55lb, which is light enough to lift but heavy enough to find reasons not to. To solve the dilemma, I rigged up a pulley, which reduces my load by half. Damn, I'm handy.
Now I can go to the boat stacks and pick something out before each trip.
