Re: Perception Swing kayak for sale. North West Sydney

Anthony, FYI engraved on the side near the rear lifting handle is a code number.

The numbers before SW indicate the year it was made, the numbers after SW are that boats own ID number.

Good luck with the sale, a good buy for someone down your way.

Re: Upgrading not sure what one

Of the choices you posted .... reckon the Glide because it is slightly longer and a bit narrower and probably easier to paddle for those reasons.

for quick release, also looks like I dont have a true fishing Yak as I sit a lot lower than the presenter. I have the 3lb fold up legs anchor from my inflatable boat, but have used it only twice so did not notice the knot problem.
Peter check your PMs mate, there is an early one in there

Re: Anchor Rope Holder

Then to me you need the rope going thru another loop at the bow with a rope connected to this loop, so that when you want to pull the anchor up, you pull this second rope/loop to get the anchor rope from the bow then wind up the anchor. Comments appreciated The quote above should work OK for you Pe...

and tape wrapped around the top of the gal tube adjacent to the top of the rod holder to minimize wear. Peter doubt you will cause any wear with your gal setup.

Re: Securing a 13Kg Lithium Battery

Peter why not bolt a stainless steel saddle under and thru the deck close to the battery, then attach battery strap to it rather than go under the yak.
