You’re going to love it Pete, well done. Covering ground and fishing lures just got a whole lot easier for you :up:

I got the PA14, took it out for a spin last night to the channel and back not straight there and by no means fast, it was just a leisurely pedal out and back with some donuts, burnouts and drifting involved, not sure how many k's i did but minimum would have to be 6 k's, my legs were tired and a little sore but i was surprised how easy it was to go to the channel and back, while drifting out at the channel i decided to try and stand, wow another suprise i forgot my walking frame :o but nonetheless i was able to stand quite easy :yahoo: and what do you do when in the middle of the bay standing in a kayak?

Today i spent the afternoon installing the star mounts, berkely quick sets and transducer so im adiquately setup to fish, however i need to buy some H rail mounts so i can get 2 rods and my sounder a bit closer, now here's the funny thing, i find my homemade wheels better than the beach wheels lol i think its the diameter, i will drill out mine and fit them to the frame to give them a try.

So the fun starts again, seting it up to suite my needs and style :up: with it now acceptable for fishing, now i need to think about how best to setup the anchor, the way it was setup in the Maverick won't work in the PA, any ideas appreciated :up: the im onto setting up a permanent electrical system rather than the temp one i now have, i also have to give some consideration to the trailer I've also fitted roofracks to my car so car topping has been added.

I've been looking at some of the setups others have used/made and im starting to get some ideas on how best to make the PA my own ;)

Your legs will build up strength quickly seeing how often you get out. You arms might wither away though.. :lol:

Yah it's new figured it's better to learn faults as they happen rather than buying them, not only that but it's bound to last me till i retire from a PA to one that has motorized wheels so i can go from the garage to the channel and back and not get out of the yak ;)
