Fitting out the 2013 Hobie outback

Postby Ghurkin » 27 Dec 2020, 13:13

Hi all,I bit the bullet and bought a 2013 Hobie outback,my old left hand shoulder suffers after paddling so it was time. I'd love to see some options that people have decided to use for rod holders and storage etc, show us what you've done :)

30mm plumbing pipe to suit.
This way with the T's, it gives you more room to get the esky closer to the seat and not waste so much of the rear well.
And for the older body, it makes it easier to access.
The uprights have a slot cut in them for the reels to sit down below the top flare and also a rotatable locking ring to stop the rods falling out if you happen to turtle up.
