If the bigger water is calling, call on the bigger fishing sit-on-top. Manta Ray 14 Angler is the biggest, speediest angler in the family and can bear the heaviest load.

Still agile in slower moving water, it especially excels on the wide, flat stuff. All the features that distinguish the Manta Ray family, plus it's factory rigged with two Sea Dog flush mounts, a Scotty side mount, a Scotty spin cast rod holder, an anchor kit and deck-mounted paddle holder. Performance Promise - Stable ride - Sit-on-top convenience — easy on/off - Comfortable support for rear end and lower back - Seat self-drains and vents - Boat self-bails - Ideal for flat water and rivers.

Features

  • DVC Deluxe Seat
  • Groove

A very good fishing boat. Very comfortable. Its at the upper limit of what I can handle myself in terms of loading and unloading from my truck. The seat is outstanding. The storage is very good. The only improvements or suggestions that I see for improvement is that is less comfortable to sit "side saddle" with my legs over the edge and the paddle holder is too marrow for my werner paddle. It is not a stand and fish from kayak type of kayak. I love my lime green color-it really stands out. This is a one boat can to it all type of boat.

Great Fishing Boat,

Fishing mostly freshwater lakes, I like this boat for its great stability, good ergonomic seating, good tracking and overall handling. I have not had it out in any rough stuff in the ocean, and have no plans to use it in the ocean, but have encountered some heavy winds and white caps on bigger freshwater lakes and it was not a problem. Heavy winds will require some corrective paddle strokes, but anything less and the boat is really really good. It's not a speed demon. Plenty of room for add ons and they are all easily accessible. As a big paddler (6'4" 225lbs) this boat is ideal for all of my fishing needs and would recommend it to anyone looking for a good value, stability, and good all around use. It is a little cumbersome to load on the roof of my SUV by myself, so I purchase a set of Thule set/glide with rear roller and now it's alot easier. I do recommend you get a dolly or cart to lug it to the water, it becomes heavy real fast once you start loading fishing gear on
