Simple DIY Kayak Bike Tow Hitch

As per a viewers request, I go into some detail on what my setup is that I used to tow my kayak behind my bike. I say simple because no fabrication or cutting is required to accomplish what I made. A few “off the shelf” items are all that is needed and they are listed below:

Helping out when I can

I am happy to share a video from a fellow youtuber named JTgatoring in where he was working on a project of making the longtail mudmotor for his jonboat weedless. After watching his initial weedless video, the solution he came up with worked fine but it also created another issue for him of not having easy access to use a prop removal tool when needed. I began thinking – “how would I tackle that situation?”. I offered JTgatoring my solution and with that said, the following video explains the rest of this story…

DIY Floating Live Well

In anticipation of hopefully catching a bunch of bait for this fall seasons mullet run, I put together my version of a floating bait livewell that I can drag behind me with the kayak or use it off the shoreline or jetties.ย  It’s the size of a five gallon bucket so it should hold a good amount of bait. I like this setup for the main reason that the bait is in its environment with no need to worry about water temp, circulate water or use an air bubbler to try and keep them alive.

The best part is that it cost me $0! I had everything I needed from previous projects laying around in the garage. ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ‘

Propel Drive Net Cradle

The net cradle was designed to be mounted on the threaded insert of the Native Watercraft propel drive located on top of the units pedal drive assembly. The bungee, shown in the video, is optional but does aid in securing the net when not in use. Requires a 1/4-20 x one inch long stainless steel bolt for mounting.

I have been using this net cradle for quite some time now and have only good things to say about it. Also this is one of those “must have” accessory mods for me on the Native Slayer 10… I did not realize until now that I never shared this mod so as they say “better late than never”. Hopefully those that make this cradle will get some joyful use out of it as I most certainly have.
