You should tie your rope to the other end of the anchor and then run it through a zip tie attached to the other end of the anchor. That way if the anchor get hung up the zip tie will break and the anchor will pull out from the front.

Ive seen people do that and its a good idea in theory, but what happens if the rope is on the underside of the anchor when it hits bottom? Its purpose is defeated. ive never been hung up so bad that i cant get my anchor out so i dont feel the need for it.

I've been hung up twice to where I had to break the zip tie to get free. It's not perfect but I think it increases your odds of recovering your anchor

I know another member recently used plastic toy car wheels to make a dolly but figured I'd share my design as well... Found a kids atv in a trash pile and snagged the wheels to make my dolly. Total cost...about $25 in PVC tube and couplers. Hopefully these big plastic wheels roll over the sand better than my previous narrow wheels.

Older PA14 seat mount

I have a 2011 PA14 and have always been frustrated by the way the seat is mounted on the kayak. the bait loves to hide in it, as does short lobster and tackle. And just reaching under it would scrap the heck out of my hands.

So about a year ago I designed and had some prototypes built of an improved seat mount. And after a year of testing I have made some adjustments to the design and am considering making another run. The images are the prototype, there are some slight differences from the latest model.

Anyone interested in one? The advantages are it's lighter, a little higher and you can store stuff underneath.

You got my interest. I might like one. How much higher are we talking? At least 1/1/2"-2"? And how much$?

The more units are ordered the less the price. Ten would run about $35-40, twenty would be roughly $30.

It's about one inch higher, maybe an inch and a half.

It's constructed of .125 - .132 5052 aluminum.

Great Design

The only concern with the design is the side to side motion. The downward payload is fine but the side way is the one thing you need to address. I don't want the chair to collapse side way. Any thoughts of adding some support like this to your design?

Fish cleaning station for the trailer

A lot of the places that I fish, don't have any place to clean fish. Now after a long day on my but, I can stand up and take care of my fish.
