I haven't set up a trolley on the OB yet. Have done one on a different yak that used the bow & stern handles. I attached short pieces of bungy cord from each handle to a pulley (I used bungies for shock absorption). Ran the trolley line (cut in 2 pieces & connected with carabiners) completely around the yak.
No holes needed for that one, but the OB might need a couple J clips to keep the line from coming into the cockpit. If it does, try to use the fasteners already installed.

Not sure if I have any linkable pictures of it.

Hey,


Thank you for the valuable info. I will try the front and rear eyes on the handles. also i think i will use the side paddle holder and rod holders to secure the pulley system instead of drilling a cleat to secure the line. Id really like some sort of retrival system...to keep the line organized so...we'll see...any help would be awesome...but...thanks again guys.....
