    I just went and bought another Water Master apron for use on my Assault XX, but now I know how to make that NFO apron functional. Thanks!:)

    The XX was the main reason we did this.

    Gregg, Blue has ben kind enough to post several pictures for the apron and motor mount. If you follow them, it will turn out great. I made several changes and will post some pictures when I get some free time. #1. Stripping Apron: 2 D-ring patches from NRS...very thin and the d-ring is on a webbed strap. For the rear I attatch the bungie cords to the handle...perfect positon for me. The plastic single snaps[Austin Kayak] on the right side still have the clips...semi permanent. The left side i removed the clips for quick entry/exit. # 2. Tackle bags: I got rid of the straps: Larger plastic snaps on the outside, tied short with straps and the inside I used plastic side release snaps.....quick and clean. #3.Motor mount: mine is a little different from Blue's ...they don't have the side bar any longer so attatching mine is different. I bought all materials from Strapworks in Oregon and used all stainless steel.. Bought a sewing needle from them and all my own straps. Easy to do, kinda fun and again a VERY clean and quick install: 1 minute max. I'll post some pics by the weekend, still trying to get the Waterstrider cleaned up and posted for sale.

    ASAP ! I also got rid of the foot bar and bought 2" Seat Belt material. Put 1/4" SS eyebolts into the "PAD??" and use "Swivel Strap Clips" on each end of the belt. Works great, and when it's perfect only one side will be a quick Release. I also use these clips for the forward straps on the motor mount. Bekely Point.com They have more kinds of SS fasteners than most could imagine!http://www.berkeleypoint.com/products/hardware/webstrapclip.html

    I'm still a little confused about the D ring setup for the stripping apron.
    I will add that fastener site to my resource file. Thanks.

    Not sure what is confusing on the D ring, but here is a few more pictures. We did use grommets on the corners of the apron, and a washer and an adjustable stopper. One side has the locking clip the other a quick release so you unhook and flip it over the side and get in or out.

    Here is the apron attached with straps on the apron, but with the bungies we are able to suck it right up to our body

    OK, now it's clear how you used the grommets. Perfect, thanks. REI might have that?

    Sounds like you guys are having a lot of fun with the new boats, but naming the boat "Predator"??? I wonder if the next boat in the line up will be named "Creeper"(kidding LOL).

    As was "Eagle Claw", "Deceiver" and "Gotcha".
    These types of names are nothing new in the fishing industry. :)

    I'd like to see your pics, have only used my renegade a few times, still gotta figure rod holders, stripping apron, foot bar options.

    ASAP means soon, but not my #1 priority. Apron and rod holder are basically the same as what Blue has posted. Foot bar replacement: I am copying what my Waterstrider uses: 2" seat belt material folded over and sewn...I showed the picture of the clips I use. What I haven't gotten to is the correct length that I want[ it will be close to 27"...for me]...an inch or two makes a huge difference. I want it to be easy to place my feet on it while wearing fins or to sit on when I'm in a river. Whether I clip it on the top or bottom of the pad for the foot bar, as stated before I used a 1/4" or 5/16" SS eyebolt...works best for now, but I'm brainstorming on something else. I just might glue on a different pad....sometime!
