Does Nyone have any expirience with these yaks? Besides the length does anyone know the difference between these two yaks?? And are they any good?

I bumped into a guy on the water at Elimbah Creek near Toorbul who had a Native watercraft mariner 12.5. He said it was a fantastic yak - good even in shallow water as the propeller unit kicks up out of the way. His previous yak was a Hobie with a Mirage drive which he said needed too much maintenance, and he said that the mariner was better made.

It certainly looked like a great yak to me, but my main kayaking is done in shallow creeks, so a heavy complicated yak is not for me.

Hope this helps.

have seen both of them on the water and seemed OK

Helped lift an M12.5 from the water [the first I had seen] and they are a bit heavier than some others but that included all his fishing tackle as well, but the owner said he was totally happy with it after a few months use and was able to stand up if inclined.

Although often rubbished by some pedallers, I did like the drives ability to reverse after seeing him fish a snag in wind and current and remain almost stationary.
