I picked up my new Propel unit yesterday that Native sent me to replace my broken propel.
It seems they redesigned the clamp and have gone to a two piece four bolt system.

Well well...they listened and are working on always improving an already great product. What we usually see from Native is that they will at some point address a product issue with a fix...but they don't tell anyone they have made that fix...it trickles out to their dealerships as the older inventory is sold out. I also noticed on the most recent Propel boats that the back seat frame end cap is a good bit larger and cube shaped to help displace the pedaler's weight over a larger surface area. That should help with the denting issue we were seeing on the hull under the seat frame.

I'm surprised this didn't leak out B 4 one just showed up,at the dealer. He didn't even notice it and was very surprised of the change.
All his new yaks had the old style so this must be very new.
