 Product Description and Specs

The Native Watercraft Propel 12.5 may be the most boat in a 12-foot package you'll find anywhere. Generous beam and plenty of volume give the boat the stability to let you stand confidently for casting or just getting a good view of what's ahead. The pedal drive enables you to enjoy the Mariner's maneuverability and comfort all day. The crank arm on the pedal drive has been shortened for easier pedaling so you don't have to bring your knee up as far. The Native Mariner 12.5 features an open rear deck that is great for a small passenger or gear for a day on the water. The unique low rear deck design coupled with unrivaled stability means that climbing back in after a swim or snorkel is almost effortless. Drive works in both forwards and reverse.

• Patented tunnel hull for added stability
• Air-Lite seating system dries quickly and can move forward or recline
• Plug and play system for easy attachment of accessories
• Propel Drive System included
• Drive works in both forwards and reverse

After a year researching many top brand of kayaks the Native Watercraft Mariner won out. The main reason the peddle drive and the fact that it can be peddled in reverse a big plus. I tested it out in tight locations where I could not paddle due to overhanging mangrove branches with a few forward and reverse moves I was out of the thicket kind of like driving a car. A full size paddle was of no use in those conditions. Fishing a main channel with boats coming and going, with the chop, the current, and the wind all against me I held my spot along a seawall catching seabass all the while slowly peddling in reverse holding my postion. It was an excellent decision hope others will consider this boat. Very roomy and a breeze to stand in.

It is nice and efficient, and great to be able to go in reverse while fishing but the negatives outweigh the positive. If you kayak in an area which is high in vegetation, forget it. You will be picking weeds ou of the prop and conjugating new forms of the F word. Salt water use requires meticulous maintenance. I bought one for my wif who couldn't paddle due shoulder issues. We live on deep water creek here in Georgia and she would go out by herself and often not take meticulous care of the propel mechanism. It lasted one season before it became completely frozen and useless. I was unable to take it apart even with numerous attempts with products intended for this pip use, a heat gun , even a sledge hammer. I have since purchased her a Hobie Mirage (and one for myself). It is a far superior product.

Love the boat - best purchase I've made in a long time. However, it came missing the propel unit and there were no instructions as to how to set up the seat (or anything else). AK took care of the missing propel unit quickly and I think we got the seat figured out. The only issue is that my husband is a left-hander and the rudder control is on the left which does cause some problem while he fishes.
