For those of us capable of lifting the front weight and then sliding this yak onto our pickup beds and then lifting up the reat weight to push the yak into the pickup bed, this is a game breaker/changer. It can be put on a trailer with minimal effort, secured and taken to and from the launch sites.
The seat appears to be the best choice ever for yakkers. The BOA adjustable system is used in ski boot and the Korker fly fishing boots. BOA systems are easy to use and make life easier and better for users. Having the seat lifted while you stand to cast or catch a fish is a great benefit.
The transponder system appears to be good. I don't understand what batteries would/could be used and where they would be stored.
I'm confused re the dual steering label.
If you intend to stand, you probably should buy the lean/standing rail/mount.
Having the seat in its normal raised position will allow us to see fish and cast to them, often without need to stand. You can stand to sight the fish, and then setting down and slowly peddle or paddle within casting distance to keep from spooking the fish. I do that with my Freedom Hawks.
So when will 12' PAs be on the market and what will be the cost?
