If I could build a monster kayak from all of my favorite parts, it would look like this:

Great picks for the best of the best from several yaks. I would throw in the seating versatility of the Big Tuna.

Nice Fankenyak IMO.
I like my dreams wet though laugh
So, 13-14' length.
Handles would be built into yak.
Adjustable foot rest/pegs
All stainless hardware where needed With locktite from factory.
I too would like Sonar setup like ride 11 thumb
Like to see those Old rubber lids make a come back on all hatches (Minimum 3 with big lips)
They sealed best IMO, were cheap, easy to replace & left little to Murphy.
Trolly attachment points would come from factory.
Theyd be replacable and run from tip to sturn on BOTH SIDES.
Yak would have 2 wells long enough for a Lrg. cooler. 1 forward 1rear. Cockpit would be rectangular In the middle.
Cup HOLDERS standard, all flat surfaces along gunnals and allong wells for either mounting boards, mount bases,sliding gear track ect etc. Iidenticle rocker on both ends. Flat bottomed.
Long multiple ribs would keep her tracking true. 10 over sized scuppers like slayer.
Large replaceable skid pads bow and sturn!!!
Wouldnt matter If waves are hitting u from behind or in the front your not getting swamped.

i agree with all them, few things i wish all good companies would do is add gear tracks to all the popular fishing models recessed in the molds i know some models do, but imo now days they all should. pre manufactured areas for anchor trolleys, and at least one very large recessed area under a scupper hole for larger transducers of the modern fish finders. seems to me thoes are features all the major fishing yak companies should put in on angler models.

Add up all those thing together.
Purchase price goes way up. Weight goes way Up. Sales go down.

Not that hard to add tracks. And isn't it just more enjoyable to rig your boat the way YOU want it rigged for the type of fishing YOU do?

You guys have added some good additions! Wildy made a carbon fiber kayak at one time (I think they made 5)that was super light weight. It definitely cost more than $500 though. rolfmao

You forgot the 50 BMG mounted up front so that you warn the jet skiers to stay away.

They don't make it anymore, the Bimini 15.
