Late post, but here is my 2020 Stealth Fisha 555 kayak.  I ordered it from the folks in South Africa, and it is a good yak for out on big blue.  Glides forever and a day.  At 18 feet, it is a long yak, and I like the fact I can store up to an 8 foot rod in hull without issue.  It has a built in live bait tank that keeps water circulating through a pair of scuppers on the underside.  Fish Finder is an older Lowrance 4 off of my old kayak.  In 2020 I made several long (long to me) kayaking trips that I would of never made with my old plastic yak. Distance of upwards of 12 miles (not a huge amount, but I use to be worn out after 4-5 miles in Big Red).  I tried a front mounted rod mount, but really didn't like it, and use the conventional rod holders behind me.   The old Grey Toyota has been retired and replaced with a Nissan Frontier.  I will post the mods I did to get that on the truck and the poor boy special rod holders I made.

That's a really nice looking boat.  Much better then the squat and wide US made fishing kayaks.  It should be much faster.

Their web site shows a different style rudder system without the kick-up.

The stock rudder is a fixed one.  As the shoreline here is mostly rock and barnacles, I opted for a rear retracting one. Makes loading, launching, and landing easier for me.

Leave the gun.  Take the cannolis.

 Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he will sit in a boat all day drinking beer.

Personal best?
I own’t see too many p/u’s nowadays with just a small extended cab and only 2 doors, too bad you couldn’t sell me that’n, I like Toyota’s. Seems like alla new stuff nowadays is 4-door crew-cab with the corresponding  extra short bed.
