I am the Texas distributor for a new Kayak. It's a new design that's very stable and has a lot of options like pop out pontoons with L.E.D. Lights and a unique rail system . Length is 13 feet, width 32 inches , pontoons 96.5 inches. It weighs 85 lbs with the seat. 450 lb capacity. It's called the DFP for Dive, Fish, Paddle. It's stable enough to sit on the side and get in and out of the water or get large fish in the boat. Tell me what you think

Looks kinda neat! Nice to see some new idea's. You should put up some #'s for them like length, weight capacity, width, and so on.

Neat ideas there. How do the pontoons go in and out ? Are those led lights in the deck ? What is that tank in the dark colored one ? Is the seat high/low ? I do like the looks of it .

The pontoons push out by hand and have lights in them also.the seat is not too low , but not extremely high. The tank is for storage or live well and can be connected to the battery also. It is set up to add a lot of options. There is a lot of storage space also.

How stable is it without the pontoons out? Can I stand in it without the pontoons out? From the pics it looks like a tall person 6'7 wouldn't have any leg room when that tank is on? Does it have scupper holes being a SOT? Is the ruler supposed to be for me to measure my fish, seems like a weird angle with no way to support the fish like a hawg trough. $1,800 seems a little pricey, too many unknowns to really know.

The pontoons are on both sides. They are only out on one side on the pic because of the space that was available.

Neat idea. Do the pontoons lock when deployed?

The pontoons are a cool idea. You might consider adapting their design so they can be installed on a rail system for any kayak. Maybe it has already been done but it would be easier to sell the unique pontoon system to all kayakers instead of trying to go head to head with the crowded field of kayak manufacturers. The boat looks nice, though.

Somewhat agree, but I like your concept!
I know you are trying to sell a very unique kayak, but someone needs to come up with a system like yours that can be mounted to most of the kayaks already out there.
Maybe a similar system that would lock into the rail system already on most kayaks.
I'm thinking your kayak would sell pretty good especially to the offshore crowd. Can you picture a shark or a big king trying to give you a sleigh ride with those pontoons deployed? He would get tired pretty fast!

Knowing how innovative kayakers are, they'll start mounting rail systems on the pontoons for rod holders and who knows what else! roflmao
