You and kayak have two different styles for foot controls. Kayak has a cable drive that steers by going forward and backwards. You have a Powerdrive V2 which steers by left and right. tow different controls.

Nice looking rig! Clean and simple-I like it. Congrats on the purchase; ain't nothing like owning a boat.

I'd shoot off the flush deck for awhile before you make your decision on going raised.

@ Sodak yes im aware his pedal is different so the bottom will change to fit my pedal but i liked his top part with the brake/clutch lever

@carpcowboy i have only used it once so far ... nc had a cold streak right after i got it (just my luck) but i plan to use it this weekend more. so far i like it plenty of power ill get a speed once i can hit wot, starts on the first hit not very loud, not hard to steer, doesn't fight you to turn. but its new so it should do all those things well

I'm sure you know this but I'll say it anyway. Make sure you break that big motor in like the manufacturer says! I know from personal experience that when you get antsy to see how fast it goes before its broken in...bad things can happen lol.

I'll admit that I seldom or never shoot daylight, but the open deck design of your boat will give you so much room to move around and put a barrel in that space between the storage boxes it'll work great. I stepped or actually fell backwards off raised decks to many time times to count.

Nice boat! I love open layout tiller steer boats like that. Consoles take up 25% of the floor space in most boats but we spend the majority of our time on the front deck fishing so its wasted space. I just noticed that you are from NC. Checkout our club website http://tarheelfishstickers.webstarts.com/ you should bring that boat out and fish a tournament!

I swapped out the two front lights for 100w seelites. make a huge difference ... there was a some dark sports in like a V at the trolling motor and a dark spot right at the bend from the front light to the first side light area and that's where most of the fish are spotted for us. in my op this is how the boats should come ... its a must.
