The kayak came with two rod holders behind the seat. She will never use them as she hates fishing and only wanted a rec kayak for doing river floats and paddling around the lakes here. It also came with an anchor trolley and anchor and I took all that stuff off. She liked the blue and the kayak she wanted was the OT Vapor that is orange and the same as this one without the bulkhead and cost 100 bucks more and was out of stock. I will be fishing in the canoe though and I haven't rigged the rod holders yet.How are you going to attach fishing pole holder to kayak?
Ya the picture shows the foam block I took out compared to the ball. It blew up and the deck has a dash with a cup holder that is lower than the deck and it locks the ball in tight. The kayak has adjustable foot pads each side of the ball, but she said she liked the ball as a foot rest better. I used oblong peanut yoga balls in the canoe for flotation also. they are cheap and tough and come in lots of sizes.Yoga ball for flotation is a good idea. My son uses inflatable balls (beach?) to pop out dented plastic bumpers on his wife's Cherokee.
You will like that the one. I have one for the canoe was from Amazon, works great. It is nice to take them with you as you never know when you might need it. Looking forward to the pics.I'm making a kayak cart that can be disassembled and stored in my front hatch, half way done, I'll post some pics tomorrow.
Great minds think alike. A neighbor came over yesterday and saw the changes and said where will you be putting the tackle box? I told him I’m hunting around for a tray for under the seat. I haven’t found what I want yet something with a snap on hinge lid and some compartments and a way to not have it moving around.Getting ready to load up my kayak for a camping weekend. Also, some pics of my yak hauler, fishfinder I fabed a shield for, fishing rods, my flag and tackle tray storage. I dumped my tackle box in favor of trays that can fit under my seat
I need to measure my space and then bring my tape measure with me to the big “W” next time we go.I picked up 4 Plano hinged, waterproof boxes at Wallyworld. I need to come up with a way to secure my line snips and a hemistat for hook removals that use to be attached to my old box. I don't really want them attached to my life jacket and the trays don't have a loop or handle to tie to. Oh well, next project.
That's one heck of a step up.We picked up electric scooters to ride around the campgrounds. Seems one was always an issue. Battery, connections or just not enough to climb some of the hills.

So, I picked up a gently used 2016 honda with only 572 miles on it. Hills no problem anymore. Fits nicely in the back of the truck.
