I drove out to headwaters two weeks ago sadened to find out that they no longer are carrying Jackson kayaks. So I dropped into Cal Kayak and Canoe this past week and they had a new 2015 Kraken. I have now joined the jackson clan.  Now,  I am stuck in the bat cave rigging it for the opener.

 

I took it out yesterday in the Richmond marina, just to get a feel for balance and rigging options.
 


Can't wait to get back out on the water. See you all soon .

Thanks Gents! Yes, I am super HAPPY :smt007!  Just trying to wrap my head around rigging now and all the options in play. Trying to stick to the basics but it is hard with all the choices.

So far:
Yak Attack - Lever Loc Anchor trolley
Drift Anchor
Gear Head Track adapter
Visi carbon pro
Raymarine Dragonfly 5 Pro


Has anyone replaced the console tracks? The plastic tracks seem a little light for pole mounts.

I am thinking of replacing them with the Yakattack GTSL90 GearTrac 16'' Orange. Anyone done this?  I don't want to put pole mounts there and watch them go overboard with a big fish on.
