Hobie Outback Rigging Thoughts

A new Caribbean Blue Hobie Outback is sitting in my garage.

I peeked in on it about twenty times yesterday. I’m beyond giddy about it and so today’s post is more of asking questions and ramblings of rigging than anything else. No advice, no adventures. Just a guy and his yak.

I haven’t named her yet but I have started the rigging process.

Last night I added Turbo Fins and a sailing rudder to it but I have yet to put a hole in it. I’ll be adding some YakAttack GT175 GearTrac this week, an anchor trolley and roughing out where to mount some Supernova LED lights. I’ll also be putting in a 1″ Ram Ball post mount in the sail post up front. The Lowrance fish finder will get to come on board for the first time in several months which will be nice but that starts the great debate. How to mount the finder? I have a Mad Frog Liberator Arm and deck plate which I’ve been using but I am debating some of the alternative ways to mount the transducer and unit. I like to have the head unit where I can change settings quickly without too much effort. I also want versatility but I really like the looks of the rudder mounted transducer.

She is a blank slate right now. What else should i consider?

If you have some ideas, I’m all ears!
