Thanks for the reminder. Hope its not raining

So what is the homework besides Make, model and serial

Read the article and got curious. Checked out the motor and battery set up. Was thinking may be time. THEN looked at price. NO go for me. Thinking if I have to go that far then will give my buddy gas money and go in his boat and be comfy.
Nice rig but in my mind totally negates the true purpose of a kayak.

Look at u haul web page they have trailers and there weight. Can rent one for a hour and go tow it. Will let you know how it works with your vechicle . If want to weight it down some use water in plastic bag 8 pounds a gallon

Agree time to change the pic

Kayaks / Re: First boat - freshwater, mostly flat?

You need to be aware of weigh the kayak will carry/support.
Don't buy something with the thought of getting better in future
Get something that will do all types fishing and get used to it. Cheaper in long run
Older Trident 13 for paddle, or Hobie peddle outback or depending on your weight ?
 And fish any were any time

Before kayaks were made all divers used a very similar platform to dive from and they were great. This one looks home a,made??? but paint is hiding view.
Most of them were solod color. The deck had a raised access door for storing abalone and fish. For divers think they were best and IMO better than what we have today

General Talk / Re: Has anyone had kayak inspected for quagga mussels?
« on: April 05, 2023, 10:34:47 AM »
If its wet at all no fishing today
Sad program
I do like the bleach idea

Kayak is not suppose to have a motor

I have read all the replies and yes all good info to be aware of. Some very well written answers
But yes you can fish from a WW boat but depends on the WW boat

Every one please think. Before these fancy fishing kayaks came about all fishing was out of sit inside kayaks. Think Eskimo ?
Then we got Rec kayaks big tug boats that were safe but slow but fun to fish from
Then along came fast sea kayaks and sure enough you could fish from
My first exposure was a sea kayak and had a bar on it to hold the rod and stuff
But only fishing for smaller fish, large. And all fun
Things get better with time
Having done both WW and sea kayaking, My next kayak is going to be a sea kayak made for rock garden paddling and using my old tool bar. Very stable, can get to fishing grounds fast. Only fishing for smaller fish type thou.
His orig post was a TEST ? He will learn from that and based on what he wants to do in the future make some decisions . We all started at the bottom and learned along the way.

That rack style I think was developed for white water kayaks. WW kayaks are Shorter and a lot lighter

Kayak Diving and Spearfishing / Re: Legal Question
« on: March 03, 2023, 08:11:05 AM »
Under water fishing kinda was a fad for awhile
They made a 2 ft stick that extended to 4 ft
Was fun and a great conversation starter on club dives
Out of production ? Only special order I believe
Search for scuba stick and videos pop up but cant find a good picture
I have one and tried it in salt water, and found spear gun easier
Better for fresh water

After my last trip to Florida fishing deep I am going Elec
After couple hours cranking that much, elec is nice
They do make small elec and large. Seems more smaller being produced? Lately
They do have a time and place to use compared to other tackle
