The Kraken Kayak by legendkayaks

The Kraken kayak can be used with simple fittings for a quick recreational paddle, or it can be custom fitted for any touring or kayak fishing application. Don’t forget about the family so just take them with you on the Kraken kayak. A flat deck allows for infinite seating positions, storage options and makes a great surface for standing on.

This is an ideal kayak for the person that wants to do all your own DIY. I think I would fit into this group. If you need some ideas check out this facebook group kayakdiy

The other route is to explore the options with Brian from Legend Kayaks and create a water craft that is going to do everything and anything for you. Brian is very creative and fishing is his passion. So he is the right man to speak to.

This is just a few of the available extras: Foot brace systems for all seating positions, Aluminium framed seat, swivel seat, surf launching fish/rod hatch, stabilising pontoon rig, trolling motor, Livewell and all sort of extras and accessories available.

Stealth Surfa Kayak, waveski or paddle ski

Surfa kayakSurfa is a Plastic rotomoulded kayak now available at fishingencounters.co.za

 

The Surfa has been designed by the industry leaders, Stealth. The Surfa has incredible wave surfing capabilities and is the ideal craft for youngsters to have heaps of fun on. The cost of the Surfa is R3100.00 (incl Vat excluding delivery) but it will be a lifetime of fun. The Surfa kayak weighs only 15kg and is made of  highly durable polyethelene which makes the Surfa indestructible!

 

Based on the concept of a waveski or paddle ski, Stealth designed the surfa with a little bit extra length and width than a traditional waveski. Measuring in at 2,9m long and 0,6m wide this gives the kayaker a little extra stability so that they can spend more time having fun rather than learning to balance. Ultimately a super fun family kayak that caters for everyone. The Stealth Surfa kayak is light enough for the kids to handle and paddle.  The Surfa Kayak is able to cater for a person up to 80kgs so even mom and the older kids can have a blast. Another great feature is the varying positions or foot length options on the kayak meaning that it is suitable for people of all different heights from small kids to average size adults.

 

The Surfa is a fun and easy to use kayak with no panic of it breaking and breaking the bank 🙂

Fishfinder portable

I manage to swap a fishfinder for a job I did many moons ago. This is the site I did http://www.tackle2go.co.za/ glad to see it is still up and running.

I decided to make my fishfinder portable so that if need be I could swop it between boats. The first mission was to get the battery into some water proof container, manage to find a nice size clip lock container. I added some foam on the sides and the top to make sure the battery did not move around. I managed to find a water proof plug system so that I could disconnect the battery from the fishfinder with out having to open the whole box. The next time I am going to silicon the wires through the container and leave the connector loose. The reason for this is that when I attach the connector to the battery pack it sits to high and could easily get broken off.

I mounted the fish-finder screen onto a piece of wood and at the bottom of the wood I stuck some geko feet. This would prevent the screen from slipping around the deck. It works like a champ. I got the geko feet from a material shop and I have found 1001 uses for it, it is the best thing since sliced bread.

The next thing was the transducer, I mounted this in some foam that came from a computer box. I shaped it a bit like a boat, cut out the center to house the transducer. I secured the transducer with some cable ties. Added some rope to the front of the foam and a clip on the front of the rope so that I could attach it to my kayak easily. I cable tied the transducer wire along the rope, so that it would pull the rope and not the wire.

Have a look at all the pictures to get a better idea. This setup works so well for me and I have used it on many boats.
