Not sure where to put this, is there a pontoon/float tube section?

This is my 2013 Assault.

The FRAMELESS pontoons do pose a problem on where to mount things due to the oars.
I added Scotty glue ons which allow me to use Scotty fly rod holders, Scotty Anchor, or the Scotty Camera mount.

I got the NFO Apron and added a little more velcro so it wraps around the toons

I used Dog clips on the motor mount for quick connections

I used a 3" Nylon strap with quick clip for the Transducer

Use a Wing Nut so easy to raise and lower then tighten

I mounted a Ram ball mount to a piece of plywood which is the length of my side bag plus velcro on the bottom to hold it in place

Then I use a 4" Ram Mount to the ball mount on the Sonar screen.

I topped it all off with the Ultra Light Oars:

you need a hibachi so you can take fish straight from the water to the grill

Very nice ride!

Joni,I can't see a Jug for making a Cuppa.Beaut Set Up you have.

Just that we were down at one of our Snowy Mountain Lakes & I noticed which I've never seen before a Guy had a Billy on board so he could stop,boil it & have a Cuppa with Lunch.

Now that's a fishing machine right there. Well thought out and about all you need. Do you use a full sized 12v battery?

Joni: Very well thought out, I love the way you used the dog clamps for quick setup on the motor mount and the ingenius 3" nylon strap with the quick clips for the transducer............looks like I need to make a trip down to the hardware store!

I do use the break your back full size #27 battery. It is in a fancy box with clips for the motor and the sonar. The Assault is smaller than the Renegade so less room behind me.
However, I do have 36" inseam so I have the seat back a ways. There is room for my PFD then the battery. I kind of lean against the pfd which is really comfortable.

Thing is, all I have added is two glue ons front and rear for rod/anchor/camera mounts and the sonar. The motor and mount is the same on all outlaws. But I had all this empty space in front of me, so I thought an apron or shelve. Cool thing will be to lay the fish on the ruler and snap a picture with little handling, and the apron is rubber coated. Not all fish, just the questionable ones...LOL
