Pro Angler P.M.V. (pedal marine vessel) - rigged

Postby BLL » Wed Oct 14, 2009 12:00 pm

I have just completed rigging a pro angler. The name came from my workmates - apparently this is what I may end up as if I go too deep.

Nice setup. Would the trailer be an Easy Trailer?

That is one seriously pimped yak!

:shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock:

Visually appealing with the sounder, rod holder mounts. Is the sounder mount one designed for sounders or is it something you have adapted for the sounder? Looks the goods whatever it is. 8)

Silly question I suppose but why have you got a bilge pump in a SOT kayak?

Fantastic setup but ...why the bilge pump ? I wouldn't have filled a small cup with the water that came out of my PA the first few times I used it.

Great rig mate, very well done,
Personally i don't have a bilge fitted in the hull of my Outback, but its not a bad idea if you go offshore or out in big bays / lakes. You never know what might go wrong out there and you could take on some water, as the poor fellows off Frankston Victoria found out last weekend, In 13 deg water you only get about 10mins before hyperthermia starts to set in and two people died.

Guys, thanks for the kind words.

To answer a couple of questions:
Yes the trailer is an Easy Trailer from Victoria 8x4 and is legal in SA with no need for a rear flag.Great firm to deal with.
http://www.easytrailer.com.au/

The sounder mount is a RAM mount "RAM Mount Horizontal Straight Swing and Ball Arm with Plate" from a crowd called express mounts on the net. www.expressmounts.com
I bought all of the RAM gear there - the rail mounted holder was not avaliable in Aus.

Re the bilge pump - I would sooner be safe -------. Also speaking to the sea rescue squadron - this complies with inshore regs (even though a kayak does not have to) - If I ever fit a motor ............

As for cost - lets just say I could have bought a good tinny. However I like estuary (mangroves)/ coastal / fresh and flyfishing and haven't seen a tinny that can do all that.
A large part of the fitout was the trailer and Sounder/GPS both purchased off the net for reasonable prices. Also had an ebay win on a gold navionics card for Adelaide. This decided me on the lowrance otherwise I would have bought the Garmin (with inbuilt maps)

The one saving I do make is building my own rods.

Gday brett, Ive been checking out your kayak, but only then realised your a croweater too. My next yak is a dune PA with a lowrance HDS5 sounder. So may copy your layout a little.

Where abouts do you do most of your fishing?

Not such a bad idea really. I have filled mine with a good deal of water by the fact the hatches dont seal quite well enough. I think that I might end up installing one myself simply for added piece of mine if nothing else.

Yes, yes mate - that is how you do it.
Very nice job on the fitout (and great choice of sounder).
Many happy hours are heading your way.
