Ed you turned me on to the glue ons. Coolest thing since peanut butter.
Gotta say, Ed; my Alaskan 15=footer isn't tricked out like this Scadden!! I feel like I'm missing the boat here-literally! Ah well, the day is yet young, and I need to sally forth to Hooked on Toys in Wenatchee for some herring (going salmon fishing with a friend this afternoon). Who knows what I'll find in the depths of that store!
What in the heck!?!?!??!?!?
That is the wildest thing I've ever seen....BUT......I'd just buy a small pram, driftboat, or V boat and just trick it out the same. Toss it on a trailer and away you go. Can launch by yourself, it's ready to go 24/7, and will definitely have a longer life (well, if you get a decent glass or aluminum version). Trust me, I had some pretty big dreams of tricking out a whitewater grade cataraft. Including a removable Jet motor, trolling motor, etc, etc etc. After I started thinking about it, my small V hull I had fit the same bill for all the waters I wanted to do the modifications for. That included some smaller lakes I would've had to drag the boat into.
Will say though, it does look bad ass. Now, if it was camo (like military style), it would look like you were ready to invade a small country with the thing.
But I have a small deep V Aluminum boat. You are right, ready 24/7 and easy to launch.
This one allows me to use my feet, a little bit of cardiovascular exercise. Can set up and launch myself
and fits in my car
except for the kitchen sink..... god damn, but very kick ass
Nice job organizing and outfitting your Scadden.
I hope you only weigh 100 pounds though........... Looks like alot of gear weight. What is the weight rating on those rafts?
Maybe needs a beer cooler in front to balance it out.
Well the battery is probably close to 60 lbs, motor around 25 lbs, sonar maybe a pound, maybe a pound or two with rods and lines...boat rated at 800 lbs I think....I am good.
Boat sits pretty level. With battery and motor, a little up in the front, but nice on waves.
The only thing wrong with that video was that your reel is installed backwards. Cool mods Blue, have you outdone Mojo?
I cannot reel right handed! Spazz totally. He has been using the Renegade. Not sure why no the XX other than the Renegade is a little shorter and lighter....plus I have it rigged with the glue ons (thanks to you). I am wondering if we will use the X5's again!
I wish you would have left the camera on to see the fish
I think you need to get another one and make it a two story affair As usual you have some great solutions and boat jazz. Love it.
Blue, what D rings did you go with and where did you find them?
I am inspired!
I bought some sweet little 3" ones at a Marine place here, but I ordered the same ones that are on the toon from Dave. Took a few weeks asa they were totally out, but he offered to send me any of the other colors at a discount. I wanted blue, what can I say.
Wheer did you order from?
