Canoe and Kayak are bringing several fishing kayaks to Ngamotu beach this Saturday 21st December 2pm for people to try out, including the new Viking Reload. Anyone is welcome
At the same time the Taranaki Kayak Fishing Club is having a wee BBQ catch up for members, sausages and bread provided, just bring a drink or two. Members can also weigh their fish if they get out that morning.

It just means anyone in the family becomes a member so can get trophies etc and can vote at AGM.

'course if it was in camo....

2nd the above, great of C&K to give the selection to compare. I think most all there had a version of their own yak to paddle against the star of the show.

I've an old prowler 13 and found the 4.3 a nice upgrade, more storage for one thing. Seemed to me when trialled on lake the previous day that it slipped along easier.
At the port it didn't come into it. With a small chop to play with the star was drier by a bit due I think to the fullness carrierd forward in the bow, lowdown. The 4.3 carries a finer run further aft and develops a spray closer to the cockpit hence more on the paddler.
The reloadr develops it nearer the bow so nothing to arrive at cockpit.
All verry arbitrary of course, after all, they're yaks, you are gonna get wet some where in the trip??
Best of the reloader/viking is the storage. Got it all over the OK for options. plus the pod thing....
Only growl would be no way to access the rear of the hull for retrieving bits or stuffing flotation. Sure, more points of entry for seepage but?
Thanks again for the chance to play, sooo tempting. :devil:
