The rear wheel bracket is significantly wider than the rear edge of the yak and the protruding shoulders of the bracket have to create significant drag and turbulence at the back of your boat, which is bad for paddling and fishing. On the other hand, I am never going to use the rear wheel as intended: I tested it with a nominal load of gear in my boat on a flat, smooth surface and there is simply no way to control the side-to-side pitch with the flexible carry handle mounted fore and aft. The solid handle mounter port-to starboard on the Slayer is a better solution.
I will experiment with re-forming the rear wheel bracket to a much narrower profile and take advantage of the mounting holes to attach it to the hull and figure out a way to mount the skeg so it can rotate up and back if it hits something, remove it altogether for white water.

Also, if you are in a mode of replying to a post and you see "quick reply" below left of the text window, click on "advanced", which then shows the attachment paper clip icon.
Once you see the paper clip icon and click on it a manage attachment window will open where you will then need to click "add files", select files to upload. When you're finished, click "done".
