re: The Official Kayak Thread
Does it have dual steering? Good looking yak...............

Just saw another picture and doesn't look like it. Native and Old Town must hate left handers. Lol

Native just replied to my sidekick question. A wheel transport system. They said my info to come. Guess the Native branded landing gear was short lived.

That's a really nice yak. Just needs dual steering and power pole ready.

It's power pole ready, you can see it here:

Maybe I am just really uncoordinated, but I don't see me being able to use a lot of that storage on the water. Anyway, if I sold my old 12, I'd pretty much have to get this one.

Basically their own landing gear. The native boonedox version has extra gear trac which is where I mount my ram tubes. I’d likely pass on the sidekick and take my boonedox off my boat and transfer over.

Hobie just dropped some info.

Kick Up fins will be available on all models with 180 drives excluding the Passport.

They also just dropped at 12' Passport. If it's a decent quality boat and priced around $1500(Im guessing it'll be $1549) then these Pelican or Lightning kayaks or other companies using the old style Hobie drives at a similar price point will likely get beat out by this thing. Has a recessed area for a transducer and a spot to mount a power pole.

Had a feeling the kickup fins would be next.

I now know why I was confused for a bit. I thought I was looking at the rear in those pics when I was looking at the front

Honestly surprised Hobie hasn't done this yet, especially on the PA. Getting the cart under it by myself can be a pain in the ass. Thinking of getting the boonedox landing gear eventually.

I do like what Native did with this.

I was really hoping for an upgrade kit from Hobie for the fins. From their response it sounds like Hobie changed a few things and they cannot be adapted to the current 180. Heres to hoping they have one available in the coming year.

I agree. The PAs are heavy and need something like this.

I use a C-tug cart just forward of the mirage drive and pull it around by the stern. Run the strap under the h-rails to make sure it can't slide off the cart in the gravel parking lots. I do move my cooler bag and live well that normally ride in the tank well to the center of the kayak. It's still requires a bit of effort but it's far better than trying to get a cart in the scupper plugs. Also is FAR less expensive than the hobie cart.

What about when leaving the water? How do you get it back on?

re: The Official Kayak Thread
The C-Tug breaks down very easy. So it can be stored in the kayak. Put it together in a minute or two, set it next to the kayak, lift the bow onto the kayak and strap it down.
