Kayak Fishing
Inland / Freshwater Inshore / Saltwater
10 ft Hobie Outback with Mirage pedal drive. Very stable and great for hands-free trolling, but hull is too wide and flat for surf launching. Cable-operated rudder provides great maneuverability and drift control.  13 ft Ocean Kayak Prowler. Stable, with narrow hull and sharp bow for cutting through waves when surf launching. Elongated "rod pod" hatch between legs permits secure storage of rods and equipment within hull when surf launching. hull when surf launching. 
Kayak Trailer
I custom built this trailer from a 4x4' Harbor Freight utility trailer, aluminum truck tool box,
square tubing, and electrical conduit. Picture taken at Malaga Cove, Santa Monica Bay.
