Bought this to go with a 12 Manta Ray. Requires a lot of ingenuity and a little luck and a telescoping mounting bar but it does work.

The Native sail kit, while quite expensive, does work well. It essentially installs like a sailboat mast and the rope is ran to the back of the boat and then up toward the kayaker. I have to say the directions for installation were not great at all. Very poor effort from Native there. Another issue, a big issue, is there is NO adhesive for the bottom bracket to attach to the boat. Try to find a polyethylene adhesive...good luck! This stuff typically requires plastic welding for a proper connection. Well I tried the solder gun method and it seemed to be good until wind hit the sail my first time out. I was very unhappy of course and cursed Native. For such an expensive sail kit I should have received adhesive hence the 4 star review. Check your local auto parts store for such a product. It should come in a dual tube, push style-like, hand caulk utensil. Try to say that 5 times fast. Anyway, plastic adhesives generally produce heat to form a proper bond. If you can find something do it in a ventilated area with water on hand for safety. There is an industrial strength adhesive used in the fiberglass industry called Plexus and comes in around $100 for a tube and requires a special gun. If you know anyone that works in a plant that produces fiberglass this is the best adhesive you will find next to a plastic weld. The last resort, of course, is to drill holes in your boat hull. This would be the best method for strength but you may have to reseal screw heads each season and make sure you use stainless steel. Hope this first review helps anyone looking at the sail kit. Also note the poles are a 2 piece fiberglass design so they are pretty strong and flexible.
