My Kayak Trailer Transformations

As my kayak evolves so does its trailer. This video is comprised of a compilation of past to present photos on how my kayak trailer, which initially started out life as a typical single jet ski trailer, and continues to get modified as my transportation needs changes to accommodate my kayak. Hopefully these changes that I have made and continue to make to my trailer may help or inspire others in some way with ideas for their trailer build.

DIY Suzuki 2.5 Outboard Flush Stand

Just wanted to share a simple diy outboard flush stand specifically sized for my Suzuki DF2.5 outboard. I needed something compact that did not take up a lot of space and could be quickly assembled / disassembled and put away and this build has met all of my requirements. Hopefully this diy may aid others as it has for me whom are in search of the same requirements for their little Suzuki outboard.

No Trailer Required! 🤪👍

For me dealing with a trailer gets to be a hassle sometimes so I’m pretty excited about this new project in which I will be able to haul up to two slayer propel kayaks on the back of my mini pickup truck with plenty of space left over for equipment in the truck bed! Loving the crossbar hull cradles on the wooden yak rack. Easy loading even by myself! I’ve already sealed the wood so all that is left to do now is remove the saddles and paint the wooden frame. Can’t wait to get it finished!

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.
