VIDEO: How to Install a Hobie Anchor Trolley System

A Buddy of mine helped me with this video last spring. The Hobie anchor is pretty simple to install. And with a visual, the directions become easier to understand. We used a Hobie Outback as the kayak for instal. Please understand that all kayaks will have their own layout, so there will be a natural adjustment in each install. I am sure that this video will compliment the many other video’s that are out there in regards to anchor system instals. Thanks for the support Joshua “Yak Addict” Christensen

These black ones blend with the deck loop and also have rubber on them to seal things up, but I added a dab of LEXEL anyway - Since these rivets sit pretty much flush, I decided to use a...

Installing 90 degree Flushmount Rod Holders

I didn’t used to be a fan of flush mounted rod holders. The issue was that they never seemed to point in the right direction for me, and they can be difficult to install, since they require an elongated hole. However, HOOK 1 offers a 90 degree flush mount that is perfect! While my original thought was to use these to quickly set my rod butt into once I had a fish at the boat, I realized that they would also be handy for holding stuff like tools and anchors. To begin, I enlisted the aid of Luther of YakAttack fame. As I’ve said before, I don’t know anybody...
