Just as the 3 wise men from the east longed to look upon the Savior’s face,
Karen and I also long to see Him face to face!
Meanwhile we are praising Him for His loving-kindness to us 365 days of the year!

Thanks Terry, but I need to make a slight mod for passenger comfort and stability. I'm going to add adjustable/removeable foot stops/braces (sort of like a gas pedals, (or 'petrol pedals' for you down-unders!) to the spine board hand hold-holes. I'll post pics soon!

Aloha all.........I have had my TI for a few months now and have done some modifications. My first was to make these haka platforms of my own design. Very simple: Just 1X12s and 2X2s. They provide a very nice versatile large area that will accommodate people or whatever you might like to carry. Not too heavy at 20lbs each. The inch and a half slots make great hand holds, bungee points and provide a place for wind to go so they don't catch as much air as the factory tramps and keep your buns from dragging in the water.[img][IMG]http://i1016.photobucket.com/albums/af290/KonaTI/IMG_2992_zpsfa93c224.jpg[/img][/img]

I have used them a lot and they function very well. I would love to find some aluminum planking to cut the weight down though. This only my second post ....I hope I have gotten the picture posting correct .

Kona, I smiled when I saw the swimming pool ladder you hung off the side of a haka! There's no end to the useful things one can add to these amazing little craft! Now you have me thinking as to how I can mount my bar-b-que so I can enjoy my fresh fish! :lol:

ProYak..........The ladder is actually the one off the boat I sold. I want to have it for when I take 3 or 4 people snorkeling. It will make on and off sooo much easier. I also think it will come in handy if I decide to scuba from the TI.

Last time out the other day the BBQ idea did come to mind. You are right with a platform like this there are so many possibilities. I am making a couple of removable flush mount rod holders to bolt on the end of the outside platform plank.

Now I just need to figure out how to post the picture in the post....I hate the learning curve!

Aloha :D

Going to make my haka bench seat with atv loading ramps bought the tri. fold ramp at Harbor Freight Tools for $75.00 (with 25% discount you can get in any magazine) each section weights less then 10 pounds the rungs are only 6" apart. Each section will hold 500 pounds.

Will be making a comfort pad for it.

A little late to the party but,,,,I am getting ready to make some hakas and a rear quarter deck for my TI...I have read most of this thread...WOW..!!! I love all the ideas. I am thinking of making some hakas out of wood and like KayakBob's set. I also like the rear quarter deck made out of PVC. I want to keep my tramps on at the same time as some new hakas.

Thanks to NOHUHU and KayakingBob for your inspiration.

Do you really need to make the rear quarter deck out of such large PVC??

Thank you all...

What an amazing discussion on Haka construction/attachment. I am truly blown away by the creativity of Adventure Island devotees. Back on page 50 is a picture of my Little Giant Haka system used during the 2013 Everglades Challenge. One week before the event I decided that tramps were not a great idea for storage because of the risk of catching air under the tramps in the extreme conditions likely to be encountered during the trip. While researching tramp options I came upon this discussion. Had I not been in a hurry to come up with a solution, I probably would have constructed the hakas out of wood. The Little Giant scaffold planks were a quick and dirty solution. I used heavy wall vinyl tubing to protect the akas and to provide some cushioning and grip for the rigid planks. The planks came with hooks at both ends, actually designed to engage a scaffold frame. The hooks at the bow end of the planks prevented the ad hoc hakas from drifting aft in the heavy seas encountered during the EC. The adjustable bungee cords not only anchored the hakas firmly to the amas, but also worked wonderfully for securing the daggerboard, pedal drive (also secured with a retractable cable) and spare paddle. I secured dry bags to the windward haka with additional bungees and bungeed foam pads to the hakas when sitting outside the cockpit. Despite the heavy seas and high winds encountered during the trip, the little giant hakas performed flawlessly.
