Did a test run, not a blast to take the wheels on/off dry

But we'll see if it's better than the cart

Worked great, loading wasn't terrible it'll definitely be easier when I can just get in the water

One loud pop at some point but I can't find what it was, could have been the slop in the locking pin

I haven't been tracking hours, but I calculated about 8.5 miles of creek, river, and pond use, used 55% of the battery

I knew the plastic knobs for the yakattack track bolts were junk, they are always loosening and if you really crank them down the plastic just strips.

So I switched them out with regular stainless hardware and some bolt caps.

The whole assembly was actually loose a little and slid forward 1/4" or so, I had a couple hundred hard pull last week down gravel and that didn't help.

I need more keel protection as well, I love the kydex but hate molding it, we'll see what I can find. Gorilla tape for now

Someone had asked me how the TM was mounted

Nucanoe molds in 1/4-20 nuts and just sells the HDPE mount with the hardware.

Took some time to watch my amperage draw, only 39amps at full power and 22 where I usually run it.

Both lower than expected

We are in the game!

Cabela's price matched the unit I have been wanting for awhile.

Garmin 93sv UHD w/Gt54 for 600$

I got it wired up last night, mounts all work pretty good, it's a little more wobbly than id like but overall not bad.

Going to order a shorter Ram arm

Small weekly projects, tired of seeing red so I removed the anodizing off my native sidekick mounts

Added an aluminum bracket to my cell block to eliminate any of the play from the lower track

The fun thing about yak rigging is there are many ways to skin the proverbial cat. What took you down the cell block path?

I knew I wanted something I could remove entirely. The cellblock seems to be the most popular method for holding everything but still being removable. I looked for other small toolboxes and such but nothing was built as well

The old one just looks better than the new one (to me) even though it's heavier

Nucanoe just released a spring loaded transducer holder that mounts in the main scupper hole in the center, its retractable so you push it down when in use then it sucks up below flush for transport. But it's also a gen1 with lots of issues, I hate that it's mostly permanent too, plus your dealing with a wire to the center of the floor, can't make sure the transducer is clean down there

The cellblock works great, but 2 linear track mounts and a giant screen meant it was kinda wobbly, definitely wouldn't have left it in for transport, with the added arm it's rock solid

I have a shelf in the garage with track on it, so I mount it there for storage and know it won't get tipped or anything

Thanks bud!

She's just about there, only things left to add is a possible camera, and an aluminum ketch board

Still not in love with my cooler, unfortunately the native sidekick bracket is prime real estate

I've seen it before; you will finally add every nuance that you thought you needed :unsure:, then will see a bigger and better platform to trick properly now that you know what you want. šŸ˜

Like a better cooler.

Just working on storage, maybe a roof rack or another side box of some kind. My backseat gets pretty full

I have been sick all week but the last 2 days have really brought me down unfortunately, spent all day in bed, maybe an hour tinkering.

The price of the mounting plate dropped so I picked up one that matches color, now I'll have an extra to mount an anchor to.

Got an anchor chute in and mounted it to my extra plate.

Going to run the line back to a dive reel and a cleat on the track
