Here's my poor bastards...I mean "poor man's" kayak. Pelican castaway 116 Bought it for $250 used and in good shape. Lets see, so far I've added an anchor rope with float, anchor trolley system, a rail blaza* rod holder so I can hold my fly rod and all other rods, a yak crate with 2 rodholders a place for the anchor, knife and gear. I've also added a portable baitwell that I made from an old peanut jar complete with a battery operated aerator.
I still have to add a pole light, upgrade the seat, and install a keel guard and hopefully some kind of rudder. So far I have about $100 put into it. And no, I wont be taking it to the surf, only calm waters.
