PA14 Ama Mod Update : Maiden Voyage

I finally found the time to take out my Hobie PA14 on its first maiden voyage with the new ama upgrade and continue on with the new outboard motor break-in process. Everything went great and had an awesome day out on the water! I got to test out the pvc keel guard as well – thing is solid! Also found that is was a super simple process to put the landing gear down while out on the water with the engine raised prior to heading in to the boat ramp. In conclusion I found nothing to fix or anything that would need changing with this mod in its current configuration.

ION Air Pro 1011L Tips & Tricks

This video is just to show what the ION Air Pro Wifi model 1011L camera is capable in regards to being able to record while the camera is charging as well as the memory cards sizes that this camera can handle. I hope this information is useful for those that own this particular camera and love using them as much as I do…

Finally a REAL nose keel guard!

As this was my first time trying to do this mod, no video was taken of the process but the end results were amazing to me so I wanted to share these results in the hopes it may inspire others to follow suite who are also looking for solutions to minimize damage to a known high wear area on most kayaks.

Shout out to “Sea Monster Fishing” whose instructional video of his skid plate made this possible! Go check out his video and make one for yourself. See link below:

POSEIDON – My Hobie PA14 Offshore Upgrade for 2019

The last few months of 2018 had me on a very busy handyman schedule with family and relatives especially when the holidays rolled in but I made sure to find the time to work on this project that I affectionately named POSEIDON in hopes of finishing it up for the start of the 2019 year. Aside from from having to do some updates to my kayak trailer, it is just about done so I can get the Hobie out on the water for testing and do a final break-in session on the outboard motor. I did manage to document most of the conversion process which I will be showing in a three part video series for those wanting to do a similar build as there is not a lot of information out there to be found.
