This was a last minute, unplanned trip of discovery on local waters seeking what seems to be a mostly undisturbed fish-able areas of this particular secluded canal system.
I finally was able to get the kayak registered to begin testing the outboard motor mounts that I made for my Native Slayer Propel 10 kayak. In this video I am testing the DIY side mount which will be used in conjunction with Hobie Sidekick floats to help add stability to the kayak due to the offset weight of the motor. Aside from checking for stability I will be also looking at what speeds are attainable with the Suzuki 2.5 when pushing the hull design of the Slayer kayak.
Another short teaser video of a second option I created for mounting an outboard on my Native Slayer Propel 10. Currently waiting on my tiller extension to arrive so I can continue on with this project…
I thought I would share a short teaser of my latest yak project that I have been working on that is just about finished…
Be sure to check out my online google map link below to access the GPS coordinates for the specific spots within the artificial reefs of site 14 and 15 and I’ll be seeing you out on the water! 😉👍

04/15/2019 – A Relaxing day out on the water with my beloved to include a training session for her on the Native Slayer Propel 10 kayak at Lake Butler Chain.
For me dealing with a trailer gets to be a hassle sometimes so I’m pretty excited about this new project in which I will be able to haul up to two slayer propel kayaks on the back of my mini pickup truck with plenty of space left over for equipment in the truck bed! Loving the crossbar hull cradles on the wooden yak rack. Easy loading even by myself! I’ve already sealed the wood so all that is left to do now is remove the saddles and paint the wooden frame. Can’t wait to get it finished!
This is just a simple overview showing what to expect when your online purchase of a Native kayak arrives to your home as I have now added another Native Slayer Propel 10 to my fleet to replace the West Marine Abaco Tandem 13.5 paddle kayak that was recently sold.
