Anyone with experience re the Scotty triple rod mount? Intrigued by its integrated lure and tool holder.
Getting Eagle Cuda sonar/gps with NMEA 0183 port. Anybody using the NMEA stuff to upload / download maps and routes, etc.? Where can I find plain English how-to help?

diverden: Thanks for your helpful thoughts, especially the reminder to take some on-the-water time to figure out where to locate what.
I will take a long look at ram mounts.
I will check and post my take on the nav light laws in California. My gut says if you are underway, such as sailing, you need the full set. Additionally, a white-only light indicates to power boats that you are at anchor - which is fine if you are but maybe not so good if you are actually moving. I think I want all the respect and visibility I can get on the water in dim or no light conditions (I am actually looking at a mast-top white LED, also).
Heavy? Maybe. Pare it down later with more experience? Again, maybe. Not having what you need a couple days into a week long solo kayak tour - not priceless.
Keep the critiques coming!
