    With the DOA Lures Paddlers Tourney coming up this weekend and the new Ocean Kayak Trident 13 Angler sitting on the rack naked & feeling neglected....so I figured it was time to break out the drill and have my way with her.
    I decided to go with a two-section trolley like I used on the Trident Ultra 4.7, only two holes were drilled; bow area for a padeye.

    Had a stainless steel plate made up that fits between the hull & the rudder bracket.

    Employeed a bungee ball to anchor the Harken block.

    Installed the "fuzzy" velcro on the back of each block/pulley to pad & reduce noise.

    Used one Bungee Button, Cable Clamp combo in front & one in back

    West Marine S/S Threaded Quick link at mid-point forward of the paddle keeper, aft of the side handle.

    Padeye mounted just under flare of bow. Thru-bolted and just a dab of Goop.

    S/S O-rings used in both sections. Used a Buntline Hitch, which is perfect for this application (have used for six installs now with great results). Developed by early saliors, it's a self-tightening knot used to secure square sails. http://www.animatedknots.com/buntline/i ... dknots.com

    I also installed a Zig-Zag cleat, using Wellnuts for the install. As they are watertight, all I added was 3M automotive double-faced tape (bottom of cleat) to make the install rock solid.
