I went looking for the johnny dashboard bar I have on my daughter's redfish, and found this great closeout price.

you could mount this in front of your cockpit, then attach anything you need to the johnny bar - rod holder, cleat, tool keepers, paddle leash, paddle clip, compass, etc.
The legs move to any slot, and you can easily saw the bar to a narrower length to fit the width of your boat.
Mounting it would require drilling to mount 4 deck eyes to your boat.
Here's hers, 2" cut off the bar, and strapped through holes in the foot peg rack. Most of my fittings have wingnuts, so I can move them if I choose.
Note I have bungees running along front and back of the dashboard for quick grab of anything -
- the two bungees will keep handy a single plano box, binoculars, etc.
or that emergency weather shell

I was amazed how kayaks don't look like kayaks anymore - they look like bass boats, so wide and, especially so damn tall - how do you guys paddle these things distance in coast wind? They make my buddy's old X-factor barge look svelte.
For that matter, how do you lift them - they look like they weigh twice what a kayak weighs.
So any cool gear access ideas or photos?
