Hobie Crossbar Edge Guard 3D Print Upgrade

I created these back in January of 2019 when I added crossbars to my Hobie PA14 in hopes that they will be more durable and offer better protection for the crossbar ends than the original soft design offered by Hobie.

My 2020 Pelican Bass Raider 10e Scupper Drain Install

This is a mod that I implemented to my Pelican Bass Raider 10e which allows a 3d printed shim(s) to be placed inside between the upper and lower deck of the hull after drilling with the hole saw. The purpose of this shim is allow the scupper drain, after insertion, to be properly secured when it is tightened down by the drain nut and not deform the hull surfaces.

Hobie Mirage Drive Fin Guards

I made the Hobie mirage drive fin guards as a means to help protect and extend the life of the leading edge of my mirage drive fin toward the ends where they are most vulnerable to cuts and gouges which can occur from collisions with shallow water obstructions like oysters beds and sharp rocks. The mirage drive fins still rotate on their mast with the guards mounted just like normal. Sadly these will not prevent bending of the mast due to severe contact or collision with an object…

Native Slayer Propel Drive Locks Upgrade

I finally had enough with the propel drive locks on my Native Slayer 10 kayak being such a pain most of the time to engage and disengage so I decided to put my own “spin” on things and create a drive lock mechanism that, to me, is easier to use and more efficient than the stock units.
