    After some "R&D", fishing! Added two more 90's, over the drive cable. Took it out, much better. Got home, glued three of them. Didn't glue the fourth, so it can rotate when going from trailer mode to use mode.

    Had some strut (B22), strut nuts and 1" square tube laying around. Mounted the strut to the boat, the seat to the tube, voila! Seat is now on a slide, adjustable, and raised four inches. This helps in pedaling, and can store some plano's under the seat!! Balance is still wonderful. While fishing the last time, I stood up and fished. NO ISSUES! Mounted an anchor trolley to it also. That was a GREAT investment!! Gonna add a retractable clothesline for the anchor as well, mount it just behind the seat.
    Added cleats midship, both sides.

    Awesome job. Isn’t it fun customizing and building them? I love tinkering on mine.

    Thank You !
    Yes, I do love tinkering! !
    My wife is always saying, "when are you going to use it and enjoy it?" I reply, "I am!!!" She doesn't get it !
    My past two trucks, I made some sliding drawers for the bed. Took them out for awhile. Had a large plastic tote in there place. Modified the drawers, put them back in, for awhile. Currently there out, just the other night, I was looking at it. Wondering if they'll go back in !?!? Problem is, I used most the wood for other projects.
    It's an addiction. This is my "group" for that addiction !

    I'll start a new thread for this next adventure- expanding on my outdoor cooking area. This is due to the skanu and utility trailer being stored in the same spot. Something that was not doable when I had a boat!

    Nice setup and doing the addons is fun to make the yak your own! My kayak is built close to the same floor design as yours. I have mine rigged out all the way with front trolling and a 4 hp outboard that I designed to use a stick steer setup as well. Because of some health problems I'm dealing with I have not been able to fish none this year but I do enjoy my yak when on the water. Enjoy your post

    I contemplated the ascends. This "deal" came along, I said, "why not!"

    Fished tonight, couple little ones. Wife stopped by, took some photos. Couldn't talk her into going for a "ride".
