Bill - Really like the way those extrusions allow you to position red holders and tools. Photos from November appear to show top of extrusions higher than gunnels but latest photos don't seem to show this. Did you reduce the height of your risers since November or am I seeing things?
Two other questions. How many feet, all told, of extrusions did your build use? Do you envision keeping herring in the live well and are you working on a rounded corner insert for this?

Where did you get those black hanging bags?


The bags are tacklewebs. Google search them, I love them. About to add 2 larger ones on the sides

The extrusion ended up about 1 inch higher than the gunnels. I wanted them to clear the gunnels and allow me to access them easy. I'm 6'4" lol.

The side and back it's about 20 feet worth. I made the sliding holders out of the king starboard and mounted the Scotty mounts to them. From the kayak world I also used holder and anchors from yak attack.

I will be purchasing a small live bait tank for the back for herring. 14 gal. I have the wiring back there for it now

Very nice job. I like the addition of the rails where you can move your accessories to unlimited positions. I will be stealing that idea when I redo mine......:)


Thank you!

Scotty downriggers came in and the mounts are built and in place. Used the same extrusion and used the starboard scrap as bases. They came out great if I say so myself. Out of the main area, fully mobile on the rails. If I don't like where they are mounted now after a fishing trip it's simply loosen 2 nuts and 3 hex bolts and slide to new position

Attached board to rail

Downriggers mounted and ready for action
