Looks like I'll run the trolley the full length for reasons stated, also may want to tie up to some structure in a river etc, possibly better to face upstream.
I just bought a long john westsuit, so better start saving for a trolley kit and (some neoprene boots).

Get a Hobie trolley kit for $50 wit free delivery and everything you'll need :thumbsup:

I have 2 screws each end

rear block 2- 10# screws


Image

front block 2 - 8 # screws

these 2 small blocks I just had laying around and the self tappers are just into the yak with no extra support
the trick is to put a realy small hole in the yak - 1 mm is big enough just enough to let the point of the screw go through

Thank you very much for the pics.
Is that some all-clear or similar under the rear block? That would add a fair bit of strength also.

I may not be able to get a trolley set up in time before I head down on holidays (I have a lot of day and night shifts before then, and I've learnt not to do something new in the day after night shifts. :? ).
Is it possible to jury-rig a hack trolley running via the rear handle (or anywhere I loop some rope above the waterline) and throw a block/pulley on?

I think ocean kayaks come like that.

[/img]Anchor Issues...

When I first got my Pedalfish I thought I wouldn't need an anchor ...wrong.Well I tried a couple of things for storage and retracting the line ...didn't want an anchor trolley on the side ...more to get in the way ..I first built a milk crate and purchased a retractable clothes line from England ...all looked good ..but milk crate too bulky ...retractable clothes line mechanism broke on second outing . So made my own neater storage tube out of PVC and bought a local retractable line from Bunnings ...both look good and work well : Attached a 40 mm PVC tube to the side of the 100 mm anchor storage tube ..sprayed to match the kayak ...game over ...works well .

Retractable clothes lines are not marine environment proof it will seize and corrode.

How do you avoid anchoring side on without a trolley?
