Would love to be able to help you out there Stonefish, but Im afraid Im the worlds worst, at finding a bargain, until after I have made a purchase.
I sometimes just make do with what Ive got, for instance, my seat is not quite what I want, so found some plastic bedroll mat, and sliced up a couple of layers, glued them up and use that as a cushion.
If time is not an issue wait for the sales,...Noted a relatively newcomer "Anaconda" seems to be very competetive at times, but I have not been there yet.

Cheers Andybear :lol:
for general boat parts, a marine shop such as Whitworths, BIAS etc will have the best selection of 'boating specific' hardware (rod holders, stainless steel fastenings, marine sealants, fishfinders etc etc).

Kmart/Amart or Big W etc will also have a smaller range of rod holders etc.

A kayak shop would have the kayak specific stuff such as backrests, paddles etc.

Not sure what's in your area, but i hope that helps!

On the GC you will find Whitworths at the Brickworks on Ferry Rd Southport, general boat hardware

And Anaconda on Nerang-Southport Rd, Ashmore, their major kayak brands are Perception and Ocean Kayak, and kayak specific bits

Buy at both shops as recommended by DaveyG.

PM if you need a hand
