I bought this john board trailer off of craigslist...



I added some treated 2x4's that I will use to attach PVC pipe for a Pro Angler 14...





Any advice on how to attach the PVC to the 2x4s?

And I will add one more 2x2 on the front cross member.

Random idea -

take these
http://www.circoinnovations.com/circo-direct/Snap-Clamp-ABS-4-inch-X-2-inch-p56718162

attach to board - then do a perpendicular hole to bolt through clamp and the pipes- alternatively you could just epoxy them in place (though that would defeat the purpose of using the clamps - which is to be able to remove, replace, fix easily as needed).

I just drilled a hole in my pvc big enough for my socket to go in then ran a bolt/lag into my cross memeber

Gonna attach the 3" PVC tonight with some rubber grommets, washers and screws.





John Boat trailer from craigslist = $250
Bigger wheels from Northern Freight = $80 (they are half off right now BTW)
2x4 and PVC = $25

Still thinking about removing the wench up front so I can move the yak up a little. I think the yak will end up sitting to high but I've gone this far...

I might end up taking it to a welding shop after a while depending on how this goes.

That's a nice little set up you have there Fred. I know this may sound a little funny but I used heavy duty zip ties to secure the PVC pipes to my traile. It allows the PVC pipes to find their own groove. And since you are tying the kayak down to the trailer you don't have to worry about them falling off.
