was wondering if there are any threads with pictures on battery box mounting. in my 12 ft me the battery anchor and trolling motor put me about four to five inches off the water level trying to go front mount to distribute weight better. just looking for ideas as to what works good for you

Looks like you did what I did.... I love fishing from my Kayak... I prefer it actually. However my kids want to go all the time too...so I either don't go or had to have a way to take them with me. I did pick up a couple cheap Kayaks for the older ones but the boat keeps them where I can take care of them...plus you can get to places a bit faster than the Kayak can...

All and all I love my boat. Ijust need to put a fish in it now. :)

i like what you have going on here! and love the pic of the big bass! it looks like we both have very similar boats. i would recommend putting decks/platform in the boat. i think you will be surprised how well the boat can handle the evenly displaced weight and you will love the added comfort/style/function of it!

what make is your boat? That bass was the first cast on the boat. i have never fished down in virginia beach but up here bass like that are somewhat common. i will do the decks next week hopefully. great to know you have about the same boat. will keep an eye on your thread for ideas. great job on the boat.
