    Greetings:

    Posted some questions about a Scadden Outlaw Avenger, and mentioned some mods I had made to my Assault XX. Thought I'd post some pics, as I think that some may find them interesting. Used 1-3/8" diam chain link fence top rail, along with the "L" and "T" fitting available from Lowes. I did get the top rail from a fencing supply house, as the Lowes top rail is apparently of lighter guage. The anchor is made of hardwood, and pivots on one of the frame cross members. Anchor line is 3/8, and runs through 4 shackles. Works very well, if I must say so. Plus, the frame rail behind the row seat provides an additional lashing point and hand hold.

    Hope this helps some one

    Jim

    So much for the frameless...
    All that for the anchor? Did you try a Scotty?

    We put one front and rear.

    Here is something a friend did on his. His wife wanted to be a bit higher and be able to turn.
    He bought one of these:

    And placed a board under it. Maybe secure the seat to the board with caps screwed to board. He strapped the seat down using the seat straps

    Put a swivel seat on it, it is pretty sweet.

    Yeah, that's true, but the frame secures easily to the rack on my Subaru, and when I don't want the frame, its still frameless. The reason for the frame is that I can set the anchor behind me by pulling on the anchor line in front of me and then locking it into the chock.

    I like the seat idea from you friend. That may get a try as well.

    I can't say how they perform in heavy whitewater, but in flat water up to class 2, my Assault XX is very easy to row, and very comfortable. However, I do find that the front passenger seems to do a lot more fishing than I do! I bought it for river transportation, but instead have found that I am using it like a drift boat.
