Big Game Console - Brewyn
With the latest offering from Ocean Kayak the Prowler Trident 15 and it's central fish/rod box, Brewyn got thinking on how he could customise his Ocean Kayak Big Game to include one of the same.
Before cutting out, Brewyn marked where he wanted to cut the existing centre console keeping as tight to the tray as possible to retain rigidity, he then cut carefully using a sharp Stanley knife. It was like using a hot knife in butter, so be careful if attempting yourself.
Centre console cut out.
With the console removed the rods fitted in easily, but they are only 4 1/2ft long.
As an alternative, you could cut only the tray out, leaving the cup holder recess in place. ?? seperated the tray and cup holder afterwards and glued and rivetted the cup holder back in position.
Leaving the cup holder in position makes it more suitable for storing small pieces of end tackle.
Reducing the depth of the tray and riveting both sides at one end allows the tray to be permanently attached but opening like a trap door.
Riveted tray in open position.
