I'm thinking of buying a Native Mantaray kayak and I want to get beyond the salesmans pitch. I would like to get some feed back from some owners who can honestly sell me on this boat. I'm looking for a drier ride than my preceptions caster 12.5 and a little more seat comfort. I'm looking at the 14'solo, I have sat in one and it feels comfy and I like the vast amount of space and the adjustable pedals. The boat that I paddle now is very stable and is a tried and true fishing boat. However it rides low in the water so sometimes you are apt to get wet. In the summer that is great but in the colder months its a little uncomfortable. Any comments or reviews would be appreciated.
