North Wales Kayak Fishing

I Bought  the new Moken 12 Angler, yellow with red flecks.

First thing i did was to remove one of the front flush mounts and fit a scottie base plate.

There is a hole where the flush mount was so a solid blanking plate was put directly under the scottie. The origional screw holes were drilled out for 6mm bolts and another blanking plate fit inside the hull to prevent the scottie being pulled out when under pressure.
The next job was to fit my Garmin 140.
There is a recess in the hull but the 140 mount is too big so i fit a base plate. This was rivited to the hull and another bigger plate fit using plastic screws.
A gland was also fit and the hull drilled for the cables to be passed through.
The gap between the top plate and the hull was sealed with a rubber grommit (spacer)

The cables had been cut and rejoined indide the battery box and the transducer was stuck down to the hull using silicone.

The console box can be opened without touching the fish finder
