Big difference? Was thinking of doing the same.

If y'all were asking where my picture was from, that is out on Sabine Lake.

Here's my battleship:



Up until this past weekend, I was using an AO cooler in the front hatch for my catch. I had some rod holders laying around and an old 52qt Igloo and tried that out this weekend behind the seat. I think I will keep that setup for a while and leave the front hatch for dry storage instead of using the Yakattack Blackpak behind the seat.

Yeah man. It's awesome. Definitely recommend doing it. It's such better quality than the shite Native puts on it stock. It also covers the entire cockpit area.

Just got seadek installed on the cuda last night. It got to dark for pictures though. I wish I could have gotten black. My only choices were camp or gray. I'll sot some pics when the sun comes up.

Might should of not been drinking when I did the install. Oh well, it's there now. Not sure what the triangles up front are good for but I installed them anyway.

What's it supposed to do?

It's grip tape without the rash. Plus it silences the deck for when I'm dropping lures on the deck.

ETA: from seadek's website:
Exceptional traction even when wet
Unparalleled comfort when standing, walking or leaning on boat surfaces
Shock absorption, which decreases fatigue
Protection for boat surfaces against scratches, chips and dents
Noise reduction characteristics – ideal for fishermen

Looks good. Have you fished with it yet?

Nope just installed it last night. If you mean the boat then yes I've fished with it a shite ton since I got it.

I just installed a DIY anchor trolley for the port side with $13 parts from lowes. I need to find a stainless ring for it though.

Report back on how it does. I have looked a the kits for my yak, I could see where it is beneficial.

The trolley looks good. I don't know how you use it, or plan to use it, but I found out something useful about trolleys the other day. My Hobie trolley has 2 rings with a piece of bungee in the middle. I had no idea why, until the other day.

I was tied up in Caminada pass in pretty big seas. All I had was a short bow rope because someone stole my anchor while I was at the campground. But I figured out real quick that the bungee is there as a shock absorber. I had my forward ring all the way to the front of the boat and I was getting rocked. Once I pulled it towards me some and gave the bungee room to work, it was a night and day difference. I rode out the waves with no worries.

Pillage, where did you get the transducer mount setup?

I am looking to get into Yak fishing. Any "starter" setups you recommend for around $800.
