I'm going to add a trolley to my PA in the near future. That Jac Classic yesterday was a beast in the wind and the trolley would have definitely been handy. I'm just using a SOP through a scupper right now but sure wished I would have had the availability to get that anchor point all the way to the bow or stern depending on what the wind was doing. It would be very useful when setting up to fish current and wind blown points!

You're right about the advantage of the Mirage drive in the wind though. I had to boys from SC try to follow me throughout the day. They just could stay with me in the wind and current. The only tim I had issues was when fishing into the incoming tide with the 20 knot winds blowing at my back. It made the PA really want to spin to one side or the other instead of tracking straight down the bank. At least I was able to keep fishing though!!!


I agree with the tracking when the wind is blowing hard at your back. The only way to keep it straight is to peddle enough to get the rudder engaged so you can make small adjustments to keep it on course.

Adam,

Did you run that back inner line through the rear loops where that factory shock cord runs through or is just laying close?


Hey Steve, it is just close. When I used the electrical eyelets I made sure they would not interfere with the stowage bungees. There is another guide near the rear handle keeping the cords in close to the hull.

Jack,

I got mine at West Marine. They are made by Ronstan (Model #RF35151). If I remember correctly they run about $14 each.

First off great job on your install. Looks super in that picture! Any other pictures? I can only hope mine will look 1/2 as good.

Secondly thanks I finally found them. After about an hour of googling.

I finally ordered "Harken 29mm 350 Cheek Carbo Airblock". That is what they are called for anyone else that needs to google them up..

I found them for $10.45 each with free shipping

Here are 2 more shots from when I installed it. I've been really happy with the setup.
