Submitted by: CTJoe on 12/27/2023

The boat itself if fine as far as performance, comfort yada yada, the problem is the hull has a soft spot in an indentation that doesn't come into contact with anything, and has three cracks that go completely through in a star shape. The warrantee process is difficult to say the least. It has to be registered with original recite etc etc. I have no clue where I put the original recite so I'm SOL. This is a blatant mfg weak spot, either way too thin or the mold is sharp in that spot, I don't know. This boat has ultra low hours on it and is like new. NOT HAPPY. Be warned

Have had the Manta Ray Propel 12 for 4 months in Rockport, TX. Also have a Jackson Journey 14 sit inside and a Hurricane Skimmer 116 sot with a framed seat and rotate the three kayaks depending on where I choose to fish for the day which depends on the wind. The Manta Ray is least affected by the wind because of the Propel system if you are not on the shallow grass flats and you have a minimum of 15” water depth, if not then you will paddle. It does paddle better than most 12’ x 33” sot kayaks due to the sharp entry on the bow and the stern. If you bring a crate, you have plenty of room in the rear tank well for bags of gear. I’m a minimalist so I bring 1 rod and a net along with a few plugs in my pfd pocket. I don’t stand to fish but you gymnast might pull that off in calm water. The reason I bought this model was to extend my range on windy days, and it only weighs 70 lbs which makes it easier to load and unload into the truck bed by myself. I think it was a good buy. It’s very stable and easy to get into and out off for those who are concerned with stability. I have not launched in the surf so I don’t know how it handles in those conditions and as a result, gave it 4 stars.

My Manta Ray has been fantastic, I can peddle and fish all day long and never get tired. The kayak tracks great and cuts through the water easily. With three standard pole holders, as well as adding Scotty mounts to the tracks, I have unlimited fishing pole locations available for any option. Seriously thinking about getting a Propel 10' for the wife as she can't keep up with me in her paddle kayak.
