HULL-ABILITY WAS MISSION CRITICAL FOR THE RVR. We have a blend of maneuverability with fishing stability, confidence and tracking, so we developed the unique Bonafide river hull with a drop skeg system - when the skeg is deployed, the RVR can track straight across flat water and with the skeg retracted the RVR is the definitive river fishing kayak. The skeg also offers the added benefit of giving you the ability to better control your drift in current or wind. In moving water conditions, paddlers will immediately notice how responsive and maneuverable the RVR can be going up and down river. The RVR has a distinct kick rocker shape in the bow for quiet and efficient up river attainments which is one of the most important stealth methods for finding fish.
Fish are typically facing up river looking for their next meal. Use the unique hull of the RVR to make those quiet upstream attainments that put you on more fish. The stern is also upturned a bit like a drift boat for turning and for pushing up and over waves. One of our favorite features is a flat area about a third of the way down the hull that provides the ability to paddle up onto rocks, slightly submerged trees or shoals. This allows you to rest or wedge your kayak to get in some casts.
