I have some of the Scotty PVC mounts if you want them. I think I have 3-4 of them. Let me know if you are interested.

I appreciate the offer Pike, but I'm not sure that I can use them and would hate to have them just sit around unused.

Hey I just got the i9s and was wondering where in the lower mainland they sell the glue on pads for the scotty mounts.

Any info would be great.

Thank you

Thank you.

Even though you can hold a rod with your hands free from paddling, it is still a great idea to get the rod holders on the yak as well.


I'll call ryan tomorrow.

I hear ya there. I had taken the i9 out a few times with rod in hand just to get a feel for where would be best to position the mounts. Make sure to use short bolts as to not pop your amazing kayak.

Hi yes thank you I did contact ryan. I got them and installed them. I went out for a test drive today at buntzen lake. I cant believe how fast I can get to the other side of the lake. I cant wait till I get another hobie.
 Now I know why you have the extensions as well, I didn't think I needed them but I now know I do need them.

Pikeyaker, yes I can do with some more on the back. How much do you want for them?

I have 4 of the grey ones. Missing 4 bolts but all the nuts are there. 2 are still in original packaging. Never used them for what I had planned. Email me your address to pikeyaker@gmail.com.

Not sure what shipping will run. How does $25 including shipping sound?
