A bit later than intended, but tested the proto-type of my kayak outrigger today. I was pleased with the results.: I was able to go from sitting to standing and back again with no problem. I stood and cast for about an hour , and got to experience some good powerboat wakes while standing. I was able to deploy and fold (floats up and out) the outrigger floats while afloat. This is a no new holes system you can build for about $125. Pictures will follow once I figure out how.
We live in complex times, what with fishing,sailing and skiing seasons overlapping.
