Thanks Dan the dr is an old big Jon .If you or anyone else Riggs a cuda get some pics up.The cuda being so new even a google search doesn't offer many ideas so it was a bit difficult to figure out where and how to mount things.The only thing I wish I had done was run the anchor rope on the other side and thru the rudder rope bracket to hold it down and in place.

On the ones I have Rigged I added two guides on the top line to keep it from sliding all over.

The last time i was at your shop i picked up some bungee hooks with the idea of keeping the top line from coming up over the deck.I also kept everything on a quick realese so i can bag the whole set up if im not planning on using it.A couple weeks ago i met up with a brother from here and went to the angles creek inlet to melones and i was able to paddle up the stream until i could go no more.We were in only a few inch's of water by far the most amazing thing i've experianced on my yak.I was going up thru small trees so i decided that i didnt want to add anything extra that would hang off the side.So at this point i will have to deal with the rope coming over deck until i figure out something else

Looks good Mike.  Hopefully I'll be rigging mine soon.

1) FF.  Installing Tallon Elite Socket on the hatch lid for quick disconnect of the Lowrence Mark 4 during surf launch and landings.

2) Crab Trap Deck.  Installing Tallon Sockets on either side of the hatch lid up front on the smooth area.  Primary use will be to anchor crab trap platform which I'll make as well.  I'm sure there will be some other uses.

3) Rod Holders.  I want to mount the rod holders on the side of boat.  Picked up a Native Wilderness track and hope to cut it to size to mount forward of the paddle holder grooves on the top side.

Trying to keep it simple this time.  My OK T13 looked like a battleship; quickly learned what looks cool in the garage isn't always cool OTW  :smt003

Nice build up!  Friggin' LOVE these threads.  I'm at the scupper mounting juncture as well.  Got a couple of 1" holes drilled, wires roughed out and have the Lowrance scupper mount (dsi unit).  So I gotta review Wipeout's (I think) procedure.  Interested in how you've done yours as well.  This is the part that I screwed the pooch on my T13 and was a total mess - so I'm taking baby steps.  After I drilled the 1" holes in the boat, I had myself a nice pour of Black Maple Hills bourbon.

I have done no drilling!! yet all baby steps.My scupper mount is solid and cost a few $ I would have loved to go with the lowerance mount but don't have the money I will get some pics of that up tomorrow

Looks great Mike!  Any pics of rod holders mounted on the rails?  Curious if an extension is needed to raise it off the deck.  We need to get your thread moved to the Jackson forum  :smt004

Yea Mike, I think you're better off doing a mount from scratch.  I was kinda peeved after paying for the plastic crap they sent out to me.  I got the FF way before deciding to plop down on the Cuda, so,...oh well,...there goes a chunk of my year end bonus!!   :smt010  But I'll make it work.

I second that Wipeout,....Jackson forum.  Cuz Jackson kicks ass.  Never been more sad due to weather,...wanna take my baby out on the water.
