My Fishing Kayak With Homemade Outriggers.

This is my $60 Kayak that i bought from Gumtree. I then pimped it out with Custom homemade Outriggers,Pivioting Underwater/LED headlights,fishing rod holders,Spear and paddle mounts,Storage compartments,3way water proof speekers,Hinged front storage/dog seat flaps,and Water deflector windscreen to keep my dog dry and the canoe afloat. Ive taken a fair few pictures and have tried to give as detailed instructions as i can remember. The outrigger set up is strong removable and works perfectly to stabalise the canoe in very rough conditions and glides well thru the water.

    This is by far the best Kayak stabilizer instructions I have come across. Will be building one for my sit on top kayak. Bonus points for being sturdy and removable.
