New Native Watercraft Slayer 14

I got my new Native Watercraft 14 yesterday and got her completely unpacked today.  We finally had a day warm enough to do a little outdoor work!

I have to tell you, I am really excited about this boat.  The entire family bought kayaks last year and had a ball on the river.  Our Crow Wing Kayaks were not a great fit.  The models we purchased did not have scupper holes.  Having a wet butt all day is not a great way to spend the day.  We decided to upgrade to a more refined and complete kayak that has first class seating, scupper holes and also gives us the ability to stand and cast.

I installed the rear wheel today along with an anchor trolley.  The wheel is a great feature, good for the old back.  Grab ahold of the handle and push the kayak to the water.  The anchor trolley will allow me to keep the boat in position.

I opted for the Hidden Oak Color,

Rear Wheel - A Very Nice Feature
No Slipping on Fish Slime
Insulated Bag to Keep Drinks and Eats Cool
I will be posting more detailed reviews once I get the kayak out on the water in a few weeks.
