Scupper Pro Rod Pod Version

Postby Extremekayakfishing » Fri Oct 31, 2008 4:18 am

A mate of mine has done a wonderful job :D



[quote author=lozz board=whatwhenandhow thread=4060 post=54854 time=1224529115]Hi all finally got round to picking up my new scupper pro on friday ;D
Image
This is what it looked like by saturday ;D ;D
Image
I decided a while back that i wanted a Scupper pro but the storage was to limited and i didnt want to go the 6" hatch route as im a fat b*****d and the area of deck where that is fitted is always awash with water with my in it so i decided a rod pod was the way to go.
Step 1 buy a big game and throw it away but keep the rod pod lid ;D ;D Thanks Andrew for the lid for witch it wouldnt of been possable.
Step 2 you need a 24"x18"x1" high density chopping board cut this into 2 pieces 550mmx150 mm and bond them together.Once bonded together i milled a slope on it so that it was 50mm one end and 30mm at the other.
Image
I then used a router to make a rim for the rod pod to sit on
Image
and cheeking that it fits
Image
I have made a steel template to route and drill the rim .now to position it on the scupper pro
Image
Image
All looking good ;D now time for the drill i drilled 1 bolt hole front and 1 rear to hold it in possition and then drilled all the way round
Image
I then cut out the center of the yak carefully following the rod pod rim
Image
I then prized up the rim 10mm and mastiked up and bolted the lot down.The finnished article
Image
Image
Image
Image
Then fitted 2 straps 1 across the front 1 at the back to hold it down although the seal is very tight as i made it 2mm wider all round than the big games original hatch. [/quote]

A quality job mate...I just put one in my swing and find it one of the best DIY projects done to date for the extra versatility on the water

Mate,
That is awesome !!!!!!!!!!!!!
I've been wanting to put some form of hatch like that in 4 ages as I hate going through the surf with all my gear on the top instead of nice and safely inside !!!!!!!!!!!!!
The creative juices are flowing !!!!!!!

Got me thinking that Cavendish would look good with one of those.now. Can you advise details of what the unit is?


The rod pod lid was supplied by Johnson Outdoors U.K. in the interests of development,it came from a Prowler Big Game. ;-)
