Went to the fishing show at GRB last weekend and looked at several peddle kayaks. One, I think it was the Native Slayer, had a rudder built in, under the stern. The others had the retractable rudders that fold up with the pull of a lever. I really liked the Native but am concerned about that rudder especially when launching and loading in and out. It can't be retracted. The saleman said to pull it from the water stern first.... Does anyone have any experience with this boat or rudder type? Thanks in advance for any insight!
