Re: Yak outriggers

Hi Andrew, thanks for posting the photo of the outriggers in the 'up' position. Looks great. I can now see how 'in front' can work and be easy to access. How much total weight is involved to add this set of outriggers? Also you might want to let everyone know the Australian web address to go to in o...

Re: Yak outriggers

Hi Andrew, (hope that is your name) Great photo of the outriggers. I saw the video of your outriggers at work. Would like to have seen the edited part where man meets water... They seem to work well. Just a question, how do you paddle with the outriggers out like that or do you pull them out of the ...

Re: Yak outriggers

Like the lock/release mechanism :grin: . I've just ordered a set of large Finn outriggers. I wanted to have the ability to swing the outriggers up and back towards the stern. Hi Rusty, swinging back is always another option. Upward works for me as the weight is not an issue (so far). What do these ...

Re: Yak outriggers

They look the goods. Just looking at the pictures they seem just that bit to high to be actually just off the water to stabilise the yak. Have you tried them out yet? How do they handle the conditions? Questions, questions, bloody questions. :grin: Cheers and tight lines, Ian Hi Ian, Thanks for the...

Re: Home made camera mount

Hi 4weightfanatic, thanks for your thoughts. Perhaps the surrounds in the shed and the supports make it look busy. I figured that using 2 rods, 2 lanyards and 2 rod holders is a basic necessity and a paddle, lanyard and paddle holder across the bow were handy things too. I don't always use the motor...

Yak outriggers

Here is my outrigger set-up. The booms can be raised from or lowered into the water with the pull of a cord from the cockpit without turning around. To raise the booms, I simply pull each release pin and rock slightly to one side using the water level to raise them. The closed pins then support the ...

Re: transducer fitting... plz help

Hi, I had a transducer in my tinny many moons ago and glued a piece of pvc pipe to the bottom of the boat. The pipe was just large enough for the transducer to fit in and I put a pvc cap on it with the shaft and wiring of the transducer sealed where it came through the cap with locking nuts on the t...

Home made camera mount

Hi folks, just made a camera mount that can attach almost anywhere on my yak and thought it might inspire those like me with a limited budget as well as those who get a buzz out of creating their own modifications. I have ordered an 'all metal ball head' from Ebay for approx $5 to give the bracket h...

Re: Any same yak users out there?

Thanks for the great advice Dodge. I decided to set up on a free website (Photobucket) to show the bulk of my pics but now I know how to upload some relevant ones to kdfu.com thanks to your appreciated help. I read somewhere on this site that there is a limit of 3 pics to a topic and that may mean I...

Re: Any same yak users out there?

I tried to upload a photo as a test upload but that didn't seem to work. Is there a trick to it? Do I need special permission? I tried to save a draft of a fairly detailed reply to enlighten others to the advantages of this style of yak and that didn't work either. Dissapeared completely. Not going ...

Any same yak users out there?

Hi all, do any of you own a Point65N Martini and if so then I am very interested in finding out about any modifications you may have made to this type of yak? Photos below. This Yak can be a single or double unit. A double unit for me means the front section can be used as large storage area for fis...
