I just threw this idea together in a week time so I can be on UVR by 8/27. Then again the rigger is probably going to be ok seeing as how I can sit sideways at times. Very stable yak. It seems like the more stuff I put on it the stabler it gets. Top weight is 375 and I weigh 170, battery 45 and another 50 with everything else. That's only 265 and still moves like a Pirate Ship! ARGGGGHHHH. After I land some Kok's I'll re-rig her and probably Line-x the wood maybe re-mount the rigger if I have problems after the trip. We'll see. Please feel free to let me know if anyone on here has any good ideas for me and the yak. Muchly appreciated,
T-160 Navigator ;D

You leave your hatch cover off?
Are you planning any coastal fishing or just flat water?

Just flat water with this setup. I have another setup for coastal waters. My front hatch is also my livewell. We will be installing a pump for it in a short while. Since the Salmon are coming up the rivers I will probably using this setup for lakes and slow moving parts of the American and Sacramento. When it gets a little rough I take the wood off along with the motor and downrigger and put the hatch back on for max. performance. So much fun and it give a great workout. The pics I have on here is for trolling still waters. This Kayak is basically transformable.
