Nice looking lines on that boat. I always liked their closed deck touring boats.

I'll have to look that one up...

I know this is an old topic, but given you've had it for a while, what are your thoughts on the TacklePod?  I just got a Profish 440, and there's a TacklePod available for it.  Trying to decide if it's worth the $$. 
Thanks,
Greg

Got any photos of your boat?  I'm still trying to figure out where the best place is to mount things.  So far I have plans to add a Starport up in front of the main storage area (where the TacklePod goes) using the stock inserts.  Probably put the fish finder there, and after that I've got nothing.  Of course I don't know what other gear I need.  Should probably use the search function, see if there's a kayak outfitting or needed gear thread.

Love it! I own a Eddyline C14 and I fish out of the Viking most of the time because I love the way the cockpit is laid out.
If I was to change anything it would be a hatch to access the rear portion of the hull.
The tackle pod is a great feature. I love being able to drop in all my tackle and electronics in one shot.
If I were to do it all over again I would move the two rod holders I mounted on the tackle pod.
Check the pics. The FF is in the way so I can't turn them to point outwards. No big deal because of the flush mounts on the gunwhales work fine for that.
