I got frustrated trying to fish in my Current Designs Kestrel (12 ft Rec Boat) and bought a 2012 Ulitmate 12 with a ton of accessories. I've had it out fishing once already and love having all that room to work with.
But I felt like my rod holders were in the way when I was seriously paddling or too far away when I stopped paddling and settled in to fish.
I'm thinking I'd like to add a dash, attach my rod holders and maybe some electronics and tools to it and then slide the entire dash forward to paddle and back to fish. The dash Native once made for the Ultimate seemed perfect but it looks like they don't make it any more.
Have any of you guys found a dashboard you like? I am absolutely not above DIY!
