A simple, non sailing, wip option that I came up with for the Hobie Adventure / Tandem Island kayaks that utilizes the Hobie Kayak Sidekick AMA Kit.
Why buy when I have the means to just make them. 1.98″ Trailer Wheel Bearing Protectors Dust Cover printed out of ABS plastic.
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.

A DIY 3d printing project for attaching a fixed rudder/skeg made from a cutting board to a trolling motor with a 1-1/8″ shaft.
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.

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…

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.
This design was my solution for wanting easy access to my handheld VHF radio while keeping it secure from accidentally dropping it in the ocean. May be applicable to other kayaks as well including boats.

So far I’m very happy with the results of this setup as it is working out for me as I had hoped that it would… 😊👍
I’m very happy with the new 3d design of a microphone mount that I created which goes onto a Suptig Rechargeable Waterproof housing for my GoPro Hero 4 Silver. This setup will also utilize the Wasabi Power Extended Battery pack and case cover. I can’t wait to test it out soon!
