The Wilderness Systems Ride 115
« on: October 01, 2012, 04:50:18 PM »
Here we go folks I have been adding accessories to my Ride over the last few days.

I have installed two flush mounts behind the seat. Two Scotty Flush mounts on the stern and the bow, these will be for the Scotty Anchor Lock which I will be able to interchange between the front and back of the kayak, so I can anchor accord to tide, current and wind. A Scotty Raised mount on the console, this will be for a single Scotty Rod Holder or a Scotty Triple Bar mount that I often use. Also I have bought a Yak Attack Panfish Portrait Camera Mount, this will be mounted on the Sidetrax on the side of the console of the Ride, I will use this for either portrait still shots or another option for a video camera. I am in two minds whether to make my own boom camera mount or to buy a full size Yak Attack Pan Fish, anyway more on that later. I have found two Yak Attack Mighty Mount Plates here, but I have run out of screws to attach them, I will be using them to allow me to mount two Ram Rod Tubes behind the seat so this will give me more on board storage for rods or 1 rod and a spot to mount the Pan Fish if I decide to go down that road. On water testing this week, so once I get the feel of the kayak I will decide what extra I need.

Note that the Scotty Flush mounts required some heat to bend and take the shape of the hull of the kayak, a careful process that results in a much better finish!

Specs on the Kayak.

Length : 11'6 " 351cm
Width: 33" 84cm
Weight: 76lbs 35kg
Capacity: 500lbs, 227 KG
Colours: Camo and Mango, as displayed.

Here is the pics..

What are the circle things for on the right hand side rear for Sel?

One is under the Scotty mount in the last pic and then there is one to the right of it with a screw head.

That is the screw inserts for the rudder assembly( Rudder Ready System). All standard WS's that are rudder ready will have these. I have seen guys use these for an anchor trolley when they have chosen not to go the rudder.

I added some more today, I put on two Yak Attack mighty mounts so I can attach Yak Attack Screw Balls to them. I also added two pad eyes near the flush mount rod holders so I could attach my rod leashes. I will use two ram tubes on the mighty mounts or use one and put a camera boom on the other, that still work in progress...


A Yak Attack Mighty Mount.


One on each side, I like them as they don't leave to much raised above the edges of the hull


Pad Eyes and Rod Leashes attached.


Ram Rod Tubes, mounted on Screw Balls that are mounted on the Mighty Mounts, easy on easy off.
