Just do not get a flush mount..

I have changed my position (opinion ) on flush mounts.

If you have them then PVC extenders are great



If not then a ram tube is really the best alternative.... but now you are going to spend $30 or more apiece whereas two flush mounts with extenders will be $30 total.

I have found that the PVC extenders to very secure and high enough to never let water in.

If you want to learn how to make them please refer to my thread on "how to" in the Tempo section.

:cool:

Good news, one reason I liked the S-Pro vs Tempo, my crate fits right in the tank well no mods required, so I'm rigged with crate, 3 rod holders including tool slots. My plastic yak-inshore tackle box, water-tight dry box... and ready to fish.

I don't know for sure which is bigger, but I'd guess the SP-TW does. Due the shape we'd have to do a laser survey, or plug the scuppers and do a water volume test.

The S-Pro TW that I have has a more squared off tankwell, where the Tempo has a rounded well. I have a crate, 9x14, that drops right in nice and snug and the webbed straps snug it down nicely.
RDS has a similar setup, crate, but his SP has zig-zagged bungies over the well which seem to hold his in place pretty good also.

I'm really liking my S-Pro, after a couple of half day bay/inshore fishing trips its def. an upgrade.

My old crate fits great in the tank well strapped in place with the existing straps, I'll simply add an angled rod holder to it for trolling.

The only need or want I have at the moment are:
1) Rod-holder in the cockpit, just a place to rest the rod while paddling, retying, or unhooking a fish

2) Paddle keeper bungie

3) Fish handling device lip-gripper, landing net, gaff, or billy-club ?

Biscayne Bay at its best, the SP rigged and ready with Offshore-Cliff in the P-13.


A strategy meeting, Da luii calling in backup, OffshoreMike in the background, and the Luna telling us where the fish are.



(Capn's Note: thanks for a nice post and pics.  Please note krash in his "death-wish" blue Scupper Pro, lol - what's that? You can't see him?  Seriously, nice rig and post krash!)
