They added Lowrance Ready to the Outback and Revolution 13. I also want to see the Transducer area on the bottom. We will be sure to take LOTS of pictures and video as soon as we get them!

I'm getting an Adventure Island which I'm going to be using for fishing, will this modification also be added to the AI?

Morgan has said a total of 6 2014 kayak models now have the lowrance ready feature.....one of them we already know has been the Pro angler for awhile now, the sport, outback, revo, quest and one other which I have forgot!

In the video that I've seen, morgan is holding the exact same Lowrance transducer plate that the Pro Anglers now use....there were no pics of the actual bottoms of the kayak in the video...the plate had the same 3 screw holes that the current Pro Anglers use for mounting to the bottom of the kayak....Hope that helps
