    Showing my first mods to my NuCanoe Frontier.

    (1) - Homemade nucanoe transom cart. The directions are in the nucanoe owners forum. Threaded metal pipe, an axle, 2 wheels, and some nuts. $35 worth of parts gives a very capable substitute for the $120 factory version. Strongly considering painting this lime green to match my kayak.

    (2) - Stand up assist handle. I may not use it on the water, but it will be invaluable for helping me stand when I get back to dry land. I used a 400# rated carabiner, braided together 3 strands of 120lb rated paracord, tied it to the carabiner and the handle with a fishing knot, and added epoxy to cover and protect the knot. The handle? A large dog chew toy from the dollar store. No idea what it's rated, but I hung it from a garage ceiling and lifted myself off the ground with it. All told, this should be overkill to help me stand, but better safe than sorry.

    I also ordered a sticker name for this baby.... She'll be the "sublime". Hopefully more lime than sub!

    I've also ordered a measuring sticker for my kayak paddle. And I'm working on a stake out pole.

    Still haven't made it out to the water with her. Too windy yesterday (my first day in a kayak will not have wind of 15MPH!) and too cold today. Maybe next weekend.

    Sweet. I know I would 4X the rope for MY Fat Arse to stand up, but then again, no-way will I try to stand up!

    Great job Len. Not sure if I can still stand in my Ride 135. With arthritis and several added lbs, it would be a challenge. The only times I did it was when it was warm weather, and my legs were needing some relief.

    It will be good to have the option to try.... At the very least, for a couple of dollars, it will help me to stand up when I return to the launch point, and not have to fall off the side of the kayak like a sack of potatoes! I have a lot of trouble standing when my knees are higher than my butt, just too much weight in the upper body with my big gut and bigger shoulders.

    Really minor mod today:

    The rod holder is mounted to a small piece of 2x4 scrap attached to a scrap of treated ply. The strap runs through a little "tunnel" I cut into the 2x4. I tested yanking down quite hard on the rod and it only tips up a fraction of an inch; those web straps just don't stretch. I may cut a wider base, but I will test first. Just turning it around will reduce leverage substantially. I will use a rod leash. I have a recessed tube type in the back on the other side for most trolling; this one is just for holding a rod while I paddle or maybe for really light trolling (like a grub for crappie).

    EDIT - And a new leash has already been made and clipped on the light rod I will use Saturday morning so I won't forget it. Flipping the unit around so the bracket is toward the inside of the boat is pretty much a no brainer, the more I think about it.

    Thanks

    Took all last spring/summer to build. A lot of driving and a lot of OT.
