Have any of you installed customized mounting boards? I know Madfrog makes some nice ones but I mean, hand made from scratch. A friend of mine purchased some Starboard material for cheap in attempt to make his own. I was wondering if any of you all had some experience with this.

I remember someone made nice Teak boards at one point. i can not find a picture, but i recall they were beautiful!

i would us the old mounting boards to locate the screw holes and the running edge that joins in with the gunwale of the PA.

I've made a custom side board for my Outback out of 1/2" marine grade starboard. I will be picking up my PA within the next few weeks, and I'll will also making some custom sideboards for it also...

Looks great - do you think it could be adapted for a Revo? Does it interfere with your paddle stroke when using a paddle?

Good question.... I've personally never seen a revo up close enough to tell if it has any sort of a flat surface to mount a piece of starboard to. But I'm sure that something could be done!
At first, my original dimensions were to wide, and it got in the way of paddling. So I trimmed off 3 inches of the width, and that made all the difference.

Hey Everyone!

I'm the Teak guy on BWE. Really easy to cap and plug it clean.

Enjoy!

What is that stringer looking thing you have on your fish? Is that indeed a stringer, or is it a type of non-intrusive gaff?
