Ready to Fish
This is what the 14.5' Ultimate tandem looks
like rigged as a single.
Take a straight edge and draw a line.
Do this on both sides.
Take a Sawsall or other saw tool and cut along
the straight edge you just drew.
(Both sides as well).
Take a file and clear off all the burs.
Then put the support bar back in.
Test fit the piece of aluminum. Its going to fit
into the slots you just cut.
We will use the other support bar that comes with the yak
for the next step. It is a 1" diameter bar so drill out
a hole on each side just above the foot rest.
You will have to cut a few inch's off the bar
to make it fit properly.
Now put the aluminum plate pack in place.
Next I put some hydroturf over the aluminum.
This stuff is awesome! 3m backing you just
peel and stick.
I finished it off with a couple flush
Scotty rod mounts for the fish finder,
rod holder and other plug
and play accessories.
Next mod will be a anchor trolley.
