Took a few pics of my new revo 11 . I added the geartracs and installed a new fishfinder and rod holder. Next up is the anchor trolley. Took out the kayak for the first time this past weekend> it handled well considering the wind was howling on the lake all afternnon 20+mph. Caught a couple of small pike to boot!

Were you able to get all 8 screws in?
It looks like one screw hole is over one of the 'foot scallops'.

Also, did you through-bolt at all or just use the thread-forming screws?

I had to leave out one screw because of the feet wells. I used the drill they supplied, then inserted the screws. They basically self thread, thus forming a tight seal. Also, they barely go through the hull(I took a look). Having 7 screws on each side makes for a very strong attachement. I could lift the Kayak by the rod holder with no problem. Its a great setup to add additional components, and take everything off with just a quick unscrewing of the ball connectors. I reviewed Hanovers post before taking the plunge :D
