A lot of the mods are temporary as I am trying to get a feel for where I want to put things but I think this should work for the night.
The final picture takes advantage of the nifty little mesh pocket on the Wilderness Systems Phase 3 seat. First, the pocket itself is a great idea with good elasticity allowing a paddler to fit a handheld VHF radio and phone rather comfortably. Now, my one and only concern with this was having them fall out in rough water, the commotion of fighting a fish, or heaven for bid...tipping/flipping. Afterall, between the radio and the iPhone, there is over $700 in replacement value sitting in that little pouch.
At first, I was experimenting with a shoulder strap from a duffle bag. I simply clipped one end to a strap on the seat and the other end to the tether that comes on the radio. While effective, it seemed a bit cumbersome and I didn't really like the idea of having another loose strap on board which could ultimately be one more thing for a hook to catch on or worse yet, something that catches me if I fall off and won't allow me to separate from the boat safely. Once I actually started putting these items in there, however, I quickly realized that they had already though about that! They put a little clip in the little pouch so you can easily attach a tether to them. Good thinking W.S.!! Total cost - $0 Before you say it...the radio is waterproof and I have a waterproof case for my iPhone so that problem is solved too.
The only thing not pictured is the red/green bow light which I simply clipped to the foot peddle with the clamp provided. That cost me $20 as well. This will eventually be replaced once I get the slidetrax system up and running. All in all, these mods are very simple and easily removable. Best of all, you can do everything with stuff probably laying around in your garage, closets, and junk drawer!! So total cost to get me from regular old kayak to fish slaying machine....$68 and a little ingenuity.
