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.
