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.
Freddie Patrick Park located in Port Canaveral, FL offers boat ramps for up to eight boats that can be launched at the same time, a bait and tackle shop with small restaurant, picnic area, restrooms, a fish cleaning station, generous parking with easy access to the Atlantic Ocean especially for us kayakers!
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!
This is just a simple overview showing what to expect when your online purchase of a Native kayak arrives to your home as I have now added another Native Slayer Propel 10 to my fleet to replace the West Marine Abaco Tandem 13.5 paddle kayak that was recently sold.
Yup… The sad news today is that I just sold my West Marine Abaco 13.5 kayak 😢 but on the flip side there is good news to be had… A replacement kayak will be here tomorrow – a 2019 Native Slayer Propel 10!

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.
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…
I should have added this truck box to hold all my gear on the trailer a long time ago! It was was sitting in my shed doing nothing for over four years… 😳
Repurposed – Oh yeah! 😊👍
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:
In this video I show a simple alteration that needs to be done to the fwd aka when using a 2015 aka with a 2014 ama.
