This is the bungee net I made from about 11 feet of Bungee cord and clips. It keeps my jacket dry and off the floor when it gets hot. I think black would have been a better choice but blue is all they had at the time.

Looks good...every seat back should have some sort of storage....I hated that they took the little packs off the standard Hobie seats!!! (HINT, HINT)

Very nifty idea. I do miss those storage bags behind the seat like the other Hobies. Looks like a nice spot to for keeping a larger waterproof box for large plugs. Hummm. I LOVE your idea.

Thanks for sharing DryBones! Did you source the footman loops at West Marine also?

Try this link:

Back of seat has so many storage options. I have a light weight backpack with 2 compartments that attaches to the seat with plastic buckles…similar to the ones already on the seat itself.

I did something similar a while back.

I screwed in 6 padeyes, 1 in each corner, and 1 center top and bottom, and just use little bungee's to hold jacket/towel/pfd or whatever.

however, I dont think a plano box on the back would feel too good.

Nice idea for storing the soft items you want to get off the floor or might blow out. I like this idea very much. May I steal this or should I submit some coins to the inventor?

Thanks.

This little backpack can hold 2 - 3700 plano boxes or whatever else you deem necessary. It has a bungee drawdown, which allows you to adjust the size to fit the contents. As I have the oversized Precision Pak tackle storage system. I really just use this for my lunch, thermos of coffee and a light rain jacket.

Anyhow, found this in Walmart for $4.99.

Two zippered opening:

Feel free to use it. I love this forum. Sharing ideas makes the PA experience even better. I used Joeyb's seat slider and found it to be one of the best mods I have added. Thanks Joeyb.

I use the seat slider as well and cannot agree more that it's probably one of the best mods you can do for a PA.

The backpack above looks like a nice workable solution. It's interesting that a lot of kayakers use the plastic milk crates behind them to put items in. I do have a black plastic milk crate, but have yet to use it.

I wonder how many people use the side areas by the seats to strap down Plano style tackle boxes? I have 4 large ones that fit perfectly and can also fill the tackle storage under the cutting board hatch. That still leaves me room for rod storage, but it's just a ton of tackle to carry. I'm curious how much tackle folks carry with them for a typical trip. I'm heading out in the morning for flounder, reds and trout and basically have all my tackle needs in the storage bin in front of the seat.

Yes, I love this forum for the same reasons! Tight lines!

Is that 1/4" bungee or the 3/16"? How long?

Oh, and THANKS for posting a great idea like this.
