The indexer is basically a drop down skeg from the drives cavitation plate. When the drive is in use its raised vertically. When you want to draw the drive up you drop the skeg indexer down and it aligns the prop with the drive well for removal.

Where is this indexer located on the kayak?  Why isn't this feature mentioned on Native's website or in their newest video?  I like the sound of this thing, cause it's kind of a pain to get the drive up and out of harms way if the propeler isn't positioned just right.

It's a new part that hasn't been released yet. It's mounted to the drive and a part of the cavitation plate, the fin-like plastic plate. It will retrofit to existing drives.

Ok, thank you for that explanation.  Any idea on the price of the new indexer?
