However; my girlfriend seems to think my head is abnormally huge.
She always points the projector on my head and said the picture is better on my head than it is on our 50" projector screen.  :(

Got some work Done today:
Got my transducer kit:


installed the bracket

drug the yak in the house yesterday to plan out what i wanted to do...



What i got done today






a shot of my dry box, and crate:


I removed the bungee where my dry box goes.  im going to rig up some bungee so i can just clip it in.
im going to add some hooks to my dry box and attach bungee to it vs having the Stock bungee hold it down.

I did a few things when i installed my rod holders..
I cut pieces of cutting board to use as a base inside the kayak to give it a little more strength. 
i wanted to do this with my fish finder too, but the cutting board was a bit too thick, and the way the sonar shield is designed i couldnt get the board behind it. 
Ill take pictures of the boards when i get more day light.  it started to get dark when i was finishing up. 
Im just glad i finally got the chance to work on it.

When i was installing my transducer, the goop they supply is odd.  its really greasy, and i was expecting something different.  it was this nasty looking green gunk.  I guess this stuff is better then marine goop since its not supposed to dry the same was marine goop does.  im wondering what happens when/if it gets wet though.  i guess we'll see.  im going to put some high density foam around the bracket to ensure water doesnt get in as easily.  I put the transducer right below where the sonar is.  im going to make a rig to cover it with my battery box.  i removed the bag that came with the boat.. but im not 100% if ill use it or not.

next will be rigging up my camera, my battery box, scotty mounts behind me... mainly for my camera.

Looking good, lets try to get out this coming weekend.  Had the yak out yesterday all day and it performed really well, went down some rough river patches and it even managed those without issue, pretty good for being almost 16'.  Stability was what I expected and the boat was very quick.  It was about 35kph winds yesterday and the yak did have a tendency to turn into the wind, but that was also expected.  I did notice that my forward mounts weren't very useful as I had to straddle the rod pod to reach them, so I mostly ended up trolling from the stock flush-mounts behind the seat.  Fish finder seems to work find through the duct seal putty so I'm going to stick with that for now and see how it performs over time.  6 hours on the water and no fish, the water is brutally cold and there is just no bite at all yet.

that would make for a long day lol. 
Ill email you about this weekend, i may already have a plan for getting out, i f you want in on it.
the mounts are a bit away, but i like that.  im not going to use them for trolling, and when im fishing,
i can see me straddling the rod pod quite a  bit.  im going to cut up some High density foam for that area so i dont destroy my knees.

TAO in downtown halifax has them as well as the fly rod holders.  I believe Fishing Fever also carries them all.
