Little Sal

April 14th and once again wind stops play. So, I decided to try a little mod to my new toy.

 

The Nucanoe optional extras list shows a stand up casting bar. This looks like a great addition and offers a simple handlebar to assist in standing, casting, balancing and sitting. Maybe even a place for rod rests etc. Unfortunately this optional extra is over £150!!

 

As an aerial man I have plenty of aluminium poles and clamps etc. A trip to B&Q got me a bit of angle aluminium and i was off :-)

 

My idea was to utilise the existing fixing rail on the Nucanoe

So with a trusty drill I fixed the angle alli to this rail

Next some 1" uprights and a couple of removable braces :-)

This all folds down for rowing (if required) and is easily pulled up into position when required

Just need some weather now to try it :-)
