I wouldn't read to much into the jeep stickers. also don't think its composite looks thermoformed like barracuda, also looks South African from the inspection port and rod holders

says that its made in nz and that the weight is 30kg, wouldn't that be a little heavy for a thermo formed kayak?

Not quite the response I was after...
Looks cool, what brand is it? Is it plastic or fibreglass?

The kayak is called a Kingi & its a composite rig thanks

There is another pretty interesting sit on top creature here...

It looks pretty cool, not a bad price too. Probably not that practical for fishing.

Looking at the hull my guess is that it has been made in two halves and joined hence the prominent gunnel line.Does not look like a roto hull .

I dont know if it is practical but I like the concept, much like your Marlin isn't it?

Isn't it pretty much the same thing as the mirage SOT ?

The Mirage Customfish has no cockpit as such and no rims. It also doesn't have a center hatch. But yeah, similar concepts. I think the Marlin design on a bigger kayak will work pretty well :y:
