I have a 14.5 Native Slayer , Trying too get used too it New too me ,
Sit on top , basic model
Not pedal driven.
This Kayak is 50 lbs heavier then previous sit in Pelican
My kayaking is in strong current areas , After few uses paddling against current was difficult . Considering a kayak motor
I am aware installing from transom or bow is best
Those of you that have installed 35 - 55 lb thrust motors on side , what
problems have you run into ? , Rudder ? balancing ?
Native is rated around 500 lbs , wide body ,
Battery issue ? weight , solar panel works ? don’t really during day too keep battery life longer
Remote controlled trolling motors is sweet , costly , Many have taken $99 - 200 dollar trolling motors and fabricated transom/ bow mounting with cables
Just looking for some advice from others that have done this
