I haven't posted on here in a while, so I'll share a few things I made. The first is a fly rod holder. I have some extra RAM accessories so I made it for a RAM 1.5" ball mount. I originally used a...

I'm running 2 LIFEPO4 batteries; a 6v and a 12v. To minimize the handling of the batteries, I found a plastic container that is almost the perfect fit for 2 SLA type batteries. Since they are so...

Externally Mounted Transducer

When I picked up a Lowrance FF, the shape of the transducer convinced me to try an externally mounted, articulating transducer arm. I used plastic bimini top parts for the pivot points (end caps) and...

Mirage Drive Splash Dam

When a Hobie is cruising above 4 mph, the power produced by the turbo fins forces an excessive amount of water up through the Mirage drive opening. To minimize this, I cut a piece of 1/4" rubber to...
