Written by

After installing our custom SeaDek Kayak Kit on my Native Watercraft "Slayer Propel 13", I was asked several times about how hard the install process was and if we could create a video about it. I was a little gung-ho about installing the kit on mykayak, but luckily Jason from SeaDek took the time to film a full install.
