Its here.

Im setting myself a target of having her fully rigged by tomorrow. Not normally recommeded but as it a repeat of before with a few tweeks it should be achievable.

Its the Tunisian Model!! Paler in colour that the previous but as its the angler version it comes with flush mounts and a centre hatch but no drain plug :(

Positives are that most of the rigging points are screwed and not riveted and the smooth centre console that I intend to set up bungees to hold tackle boxes.

Thought I would post a before as she is now. In the raw so to speak and an after. May even try to post some in betweens. See how I get on.

Hi Darnsarf.

She looks luffly sitting there.

Be interesting to she your rigging progress, and it will be an insperation and help to others wanting to rig a Kayak.
The drain plug isnt a biggie, you can buy them at the chandlers, pice of pi$$ to fit them.

Looking forward to seeing the pics, good luck.

Dont forget the anesthetic before drilling her, no cruelty on this forum.


Bill.


Darnsarf.

I forgot to say........she is proberbly a bit pale after hearing what you did to her sister :schmoll: :D :2:

Finder/GPS fixed. Moved it off of the purpose moulded mount due to me being a short ....... I couldnt reach the old one without risking wetting the hat.

Used the old pool of Araldite Rapid to fix the transducer. The dam is made up of blue tac. Tape is just there to hold it in place whilst drying.

So far so good.

Next fix battery box. Done

Finished her 4 o'clock. You were right Bill drain plug was a doddle. I will post some photos later once batteries for camera have re-charged.

Highlight was seeing the anchor system come together.

Worst part was putting the Bog Pipe Special in and realising that the crate recess is just a tad smaller on this model but squeezed it in just.

She looks the biz now.
