tested the pa for first time yesterday at altona overall was awesome to have a feel of it ..
few adjustments on the seat and bend back the drive rod and should be sweet.
going to rye next weekend if anyone can share a loading spot in rye please tell me.
enjoy some pictures.
i also installed a hobie anchor trolley system which was so easy and perfect to fit.

Did the previous owner upgrade the hatch seal? If not you may want to attend to that. You can give it a good test when we do the re-entry day :-)

Here's hoping it (and my one) is watertight(ish).

Come to think of it, I have a spare battery and a bilge pump that I haven't fitted. Might bring that along as a portable pump for anyone who ends up with a flooded yak :o

here is a pic tell me what you think. its does give the lid extra pushdown. i am going to add another strap/bungee cord like to hold the lid down nice and tight.

and yes thats a good idea just incase lol
