After much research and help from this forum, I made my decision,, for my needs the Ascend D10T was the choice, now mind you I've had it for 2 weeks, and it's only been on the water once, but half of the fun is researching everybody elses ideas and trying to adapt them to your yak so here's my first few projects. 1st anchor trolley- 2 D ring, 1 cleat, Paracute cord and Center ring, will add pullys if needed later, Lowes was out of the ones I want. 2nd- Milk crate and PVC tubes. 3rd- lot of research went into this, have not tested it out yet- Rudder- this is not for turning but to help keep it on track in the wind. Hope you like them

If I might make a suggestion, I'd taper and round off the rudder so it won't snag so much vegetation, and get snagged on rocks, wood, etc.

Interesting idea. I just made a seat for pescalor 10.0 out of PVC and have about 8' of pipe left. Gave me an idea how to use the rest. banana
I'm on other forums that deal with the old turbo powered Buicks.;)
