Default Renegade Mods

Got the Renegade user friendly, at least for my car. I drive a Grand Vitara, and room is a problem so,
Here is the mods:
New rear glue on Rod holder and Battery sitting on a piece of carpet and secured.

The I added one more glue on rod holder up front, that is out of the way if I choose to row while fishing:

Both these holders are totally adjustable too, plus I still have the Scotty Tube mount if I find I need one more holder, but this is good so far.

Now The sonar screen is a little challenging. Due to the oars, you are limited to where to mount. I took a 1/4" thick by 3" wide by 18" long piece of wood and attached a piece of velcro as there is some in the bottom of the bag already

I use the 4" Ram mount for the Screen:

Now the Transducer, well I owe that to Peter for sure. So simple!!!

Since this picture I did make another mod. I went to Kirkam's and bought 3" nylon web for the strap, and I put the bolt more to the middle of the aluminum pole. Added a wing nut for easy tightening.

So back to a big boat in a small package.

Oh, and the new feather light oars!!!! Might not be using the motor that much.

The boat still rolls up nice and small, and I don't need to haul the deck now.

Joni: Very nice looking! I really like how you have the transducer and sonar setup, some food for thought for when my boat arrives.

Those glued rod holders are the bomb. The holder itself looks like a Scotty, but the base (part that's glued-on) doesn't look like mine w/ straps. That would solve some problems on my boat. Straps have to go in front of the seat and it's always a battle with the oars. How did you do it?

The mounts are Scotty. Glued on with Stabond. The mounts have stainless steel square nuts underneath that you insert before gluing the mount on. Then use a Scotty side deck mount #241 I think. Item 31.
