    My Cobra Navigator

    Promised I would post some pics after I rigged my yak. I have the black Nitestripe, 12" Geartrac, Screwball, and Visipole II. They all look awesome and work great. Yak Attack makes awesome products and their customer service is top notch.

    Very nice, Matt. Have you considered an anchor trolley and a YakAttack Park-N-Pole?

    My 2011 Malibu Stealth 14'... a sweet little video... check it out...

    The guys that I bought my yak from at KayakFishingSupplies.com (aka - OEX Fish & Dive, Mission Bay, San Diego, CA) were pretty thrilled I guess with how my yak came out after it was all rigged the way I wanted it... so much so, they put together this little video on it before they shipped it off to me last fall. "CJ" Siebler (aka - "Csueper Jeanyus") is the guy who rigged my entire yak (he's a member here as well). CJ did a phenomenal job on it. His innovation & creativity ranks right up there with Luther from YakAttack I think. The guys at OEX are a top notch professional outfit, and I can't say enough good things about them. They even quadruple wrapped my yak before it shipped just to insure nothing went wrong in shipping. Arrived in NY perfect shape.

    I think Brent Torgeson, the co-owner of the shop may have had a hand in putting this video together... don't know if I would say that my kayak is "The Greatest Fishing Kayak Ever Created"... but I'm certainly proud of the job they did. I know that CJ now laments now that he wishes that YakAttack's "GearTrac" system was available when we planned my yak, because we'd have done some things much differently, and it would be even slicker than it is... but it is still awesome in my view. (I may do some plastic welding on it this summer and add the GearTrac - who knows!)

    Enjoy! - Ken

    Hell no! Not too much... lol!

    Mike, I love the use of the SilentTrac material around the yak. Any tips to pass along using this stuff or is it pretty much just trim, clean the yak, and stick & press? Any problems with this stuff lifting up anywhere so far? Your yak looks awesome!

    Well, I clean everything off with isopropyl alcohol to ensure a grease-free mounting surface. For intricate areas, I create a template of blue painters tape, transfer that to the STS, cut the shape out and apply. I go back, where needed, with an Exacto knife for final trimming.

    Hope this helps!

    Yeah it did. I assume that after you make the pattern with the blue contractor's painting tape, you carefully peel the whole thing up as one piece... and then lay it on the silent track material to cut your pattern, yes?

    Phase 1 Complete

    Well ...... finished Phase 1 thanks to Yak Attack ( Luther) .......... wanted to make my Pro Angler as versatile as I could make it. I wanted it to be adjustable in every way I could ........ moving things around for the max efficiency and to be able to configure it for any type of fishing and any purpose in less than 5 minutes. I wanted to be able to set up and be in the water in less than 5 minutes ........... heres what I did .......

    Yak1small.jpg Yaksmall2.jpg

    I used 4, 8 and 16" Gear Tracs on the rails, the boards in front and in back. Screw Balls and Ram Mounts for the DF, Side mount Transducer and misc mounts, Panfish for the camera mounts and the Visipole Carbon for the light ...... I also have a DIY Sperader light on a 6 ft pole in the back that light the yak light day at night ........ the Torqeedo engine controller is also on a ram mount/screwball on the rail mounted gear trac. the measuring board is also on the Yak attack board mount ............ still have some improvements to make so this is phase 1 .........

    8 mighty mounts and four locking scotty mounts make for one versatile setup. I think Yak Attack should offer the same sets with locking mounts for more flexibility.

    My YakAttack rigged up Manta Ray 12.
