yak related projects

March has been a whirlwind of a month and I feel like I'm just catching my breath. Its been rough month for a number of reasons,of which most are money making related. I have no hate of work just that I would prefer to do most of it on my own projects and not someone else's. Still I have manged to get some of my projects started and others finished up. Finally fate would leave me with a week end of my own and I made the most of it (more on that in another post).
Started building my new kayak rack earlier this month. Had to put it under my window with an alarm and locks to keep sticky fingers off this one. I still have some odds and ends to finish but most of its done.
Then my buddy Tony and I built a pair of folding racks to hold our kayaks while we rig or do repairs. I got the idea from one harbor freight sells but T had the material at work so we saved 40 bucks and built stronger ones our selves.
Next I started rigging up my new yak. I bought the same model as the one that was stolen from me and  since I have had it for 5 years I new exactly what I wanted on it and where. I try to keep clutter down so it pretty basic nothing fancy except a fish finder and I'm still not completely sold on its usfulness but it was a gift from the wife so it made the cut.
Fit the new rack  like a glove

So I installed the fish finder, transducer, ram tubes and x-tank with rod holders that's not pictured.

Just add a paddle (camo for good measure and just because) and were fish ready.
And in between I got my seeds started for the garden cause a man cant live on fish alone.
