This is my fishing machine for ponds, hard to access lakes, rivers, and streams. I made a few mods, like most kayak fisherman.
Depth/Fishfinder: Most people glue transducer to the inside floor. I had an extra trolling motor transducer so found a creative way to mount to optional rudder area.
Removeable Back-Rest Seat
Base is made from left-over 1/2" King Starboard. Two front hooks as mounting mechanism.
Here you see the two loops the hooks fit in. Hatch is common 8" boat hatch.
