Out on the river

I made new quick fit and release fittings for the outriggers. They used to be held on with U bolts (see photo above right). That meant doing up 8 wing nuts. It was a bit slow and rough on the fingers. Now it is fastened on in less that a minute.
The bolts going through the pipe aren't holding anything down, they just pass through holes in the metal mounting plate to correctly locate the outriggers and to stop fore & aft and side to side movement.
I finally worked out how to get it on the roof of the garage. The only lifting points were below the Center of Gravity and when lifted, the canoe wanted to flip up the right way. However, eventually go it sorted.

Had to strap it to a 17 ft
pipe and then lift the pipe

In this movie the canoe was fully loaded during launch. The load included outriggers, electric outboard, its 100ah marine battery, fishing gear, cooler, anchor and rope, and other bits and pieces.

The Fishing Vest

I like to use a 'vest' when fishing from the canoe. It keeps everything that I need like hooks, sinkers, swivels, a knife, SP lures, and wet weather gear, close at hand .
