I got a Nucanoe!
« on: August 18, 2017, 04:54:27 PM »

So most of you know the wife and I decided to sell everything we own (just about) and travel full time in a RV. So I sold my Ranger a little while back and down sized even smaller than LMGs Mudpuppy and got a kayak!

We have a bumper pull travel trailer so this gave me the option to carry the yak on a ladder rack on the truck.

Once it is all set up I will do a run down video and stuff. But basically the kayak and my fishing gear will always be with me on the truck! Regardless if I am pulling the RV or not.

So without further delay here are some pictures of my new (to me) kayak.

Nucanoe 12' Frontier
41" beam
77lbs (with no gear)
Came with an extra seat (for tandem)
Transom stiffener (for TM or 2.5hp Outboard)
Front gear rack
And a yak attack blackpack for the tackle
He also threw in the net, paddle and anchor he had for it

The boat was bought new in February. I got a great deal on it.

Good looking little yak.  Perfect for what you plan to use it for.

Enjoying retirement in the great Pacific Northwest.  I've turned into a fair weather angler.  Why do it today when I can do it tomorrow?

Very nice West!
Reading now just realized that you can put a 2.5hp on it. That would be awesome!

Any updates with the new kayak? I've been looking at the Sportspal and the Frontier 12 because of the transom and being able to use a TM instead of paddling. Did you buy a TM for it? Also, how's the rail system for the seat, does it move effortlessly or is it a pain?

Yes, WEST has since sold that kayak and he got himself a bass prowler type of little boat that fits inside the bed of his truck. He has a thread and video about it somewhere, if you look for it.
