North Wales Kayak Fishing

Here are some jobs i did on the Manta11 a while ago and never got round to doing a post.
Better late than never.

Fit a ball mount for a Ram rod holder, A plastic back plate was fit underneath to avoid the bolts pulling through under pressure.

Part of the slide fitting for the removable tray was removed (cut off) and a rod holder fit in the top next to the seat. This points forward so the rod can be safely put in to unhook fish or re-bait hooks.

Next i fit a 6" hatch in the rear storage area so i could get my hand in to fasten bolts for the anchor trolly. Small items can also be stored in a net behind the hatch.

The inner part was used as a template for the hole to be cut out

Next was an anchor trolly. The holes were marked and drilled.

The cheek blocks were fit using stainless nuts and bolts

To keep the anchor in position at the front of the kayak a zig zag cleat was fit. This also secures the anchor rope and allows for a quick release
