Thanks for the reply SRA.
I went out Saturday morning for about four hours. I loved it. I can't believe how stable this boat is. I have a Wilderness Ride 115 and I bought he elevated seat for it but it was so tippy feeling I just couldn't get used to it. With the Hobie I had the vantage seat in hoth positions and I really didn't notice a difference in stability. I stood with ease. This thing is amazing to fish from. The mirage drive and the rudder system makes it so easy to maneuver the boat where I want it.
One thing I did was to take a chest pack made for fly fishing and put it around the legs of the seat on my left side which works great for tools and putting lures while re-rigging. I ordered two 8" gear tracks from Yak Attack. Can't wait to get it really dialed in.
Enjoy it while you can before winter sets in where you live...lol. You probably saw the bases I made for storing the PA in my garage out of 3 inch PVC and using wood boards to make a box frame. My PVC is 84 inches in length. Might not have to be quite that long for the PA12. Build the box first, lay the PVC on the box, then put the PA on the tubes. Get everything lined up and hold the "L" brackets up against each tube and mark the tube and the cross board where the screws for the "L" brackets will be.
Also, sand the end edges of the PVC to make them rounded off so to speak. This will prevent any sharp PVC edges.
