Winter rigging
« on: January 12, 2014, 11:12:36 am »
Playing around with my yak in the basement (while jonesing for some fishing).

If you are in any kind of decent chop, the Commander is not a dry boat. I took quite a bit of water over the bow last season. So, I got the Harmony bow cover, which should make things a bit dryer.

I had to slide my dashboard forward to accomodate the bow cover. I tried "test paddling" on the floor and there seems to be enough clearance. I will have to wait until spring to see if this works for sure. If not, I have some other ideas.

I like the Scotty bait board. Should be a good workspace for cutting bait and just for rigging in general.

I added a couple of Scotty gimbal mounts to give me more flexibility on the stock flush mount rod holders. I moved my rocket launchers back using a couple of flush Scotty mounts.

I really like the current configuration. Hoping it works on the water. For now I will be spending the rest of the winter "fishing" on the basement floor!

Yeah, I am a big fan of that stuff.  It does a really good job of keeping things quiet on the water (rods, anchor, paddle, thermos etc.), and it looks great.  It is also pretty grippy and keeps things from sliding around.  Comfy on bare feet too.  It's easy to cut and really sticks.  I bought a big roll of it from Hook 1 and cut all the pieces myself.

I have a ton of the Silent Traction from Harmony. It is all over my Ride 135 and I love it.
