Is the captain the one who has to load/unload, paddle, bait the hook, take off (if we're lucky) the fish, load/unload, clean the fish, cook the fish and pay for said kayak?

That would be me

Spent Saturday afternoon trying to read the instructions for installing the optional rudder, written in 4 pt font, 2 pt font for parts list (only 1 bag of 3) and with postage stamp, blurry pictures unrelated to the current step. Gave up, got a libation and found it on YouTube. Much better

Spent Sunday afternoon hanging it (temporarily) from a wall in the garage, 4 straps of 1.5" nylon. That took quite a bit of time too.

So the last 2 things are what I got for the AS yesterday and today. Tomorrow I'm packing for a trip to Wisconsin (annual man-cation) but I'm taking the Ranger bass boat. I'll check out the yak when I get back.

Extra counter space

Finished this before our trip to Wyoming. Used cutting board material and cypress . Put together with Kreg joints. Three sided, rides upside down under the dinette when travelling for secure storage. We don't use the cooktop, so this works great for us.

Bluto,

If you do do it, use this stuff on both ends, it's stronger than doo-doo, it will replace the buckle you see in my photo no problem. (good on the 'mouse fur' too)
Great addition to the AS tool kit.

Bob

Picked up a lightly used ProPride hitch today. I can hardly wait to install it.
