    I recently picked up my new 2012 Wilderness Ride 135 from the local dealer and knew right away that I needed to add a few things for it to be one of the best fishing kayaks made. One of the first items on the list is to install an anchor trolley. I ended up taking two different sets and combining the two to come up with the best trolley I could think of. I'm sure there are some better ideas out there but this will work out great for anyone.

    First, I laid everything out so I could see what all came with the kits and what I needed to get. The only other items that I needed to get to complete the installation was a few well nuts and stainless screws.

    One of the first things I had to do was to decided where I wanted to install the Harkens pulleys and marked with a pen to drill the holes. After drilling the holes I inserted the well nuts into place and tightened down the stainless screws.

    After getting everything aligned with the back pulley I started the same steps for the front but I used a washer and locking nut to secure the pulley. I ended up putting some line guides on the kayak so that the trolley line wouldn’t ride up on the kayak.

    Make sure when using the guides that you run the line though them before screwing the stainless screw into the well nut.

    I then ran the line though both the front and rear pulleys and tied them off to the bungee.

    I have a 2 inch nylon ring to complete the trolley that I don’ t have on there yet. I’ll be able to use my ParkNPole from Yak Attack in with out putting the pole though the scupper hole.

    This is just one of the many iteams that I'll be putting on my kayak. I'll be posting up more soon.

    Thanks,

    That's a nice, clean install and a perfect system for the PARK-N-Pole!:D
