That is a 'bad ass' boat. That neoprene gasket under the front hatch is a smart addition. I really like the way the seat adjusts forward and backward on a track to help with the trim.

Not a big Jim Sammons fan but it looks like he put his two cents into this and it came out nice.

If Hobies were not a part of the equation, this or the Big Game II would be my boat of choice.

Go out for a little while and snort a little salt water. It'll make you feel better.

Default I have the Lowrance Elite 4 HDI thru-hull

I used the third method in the attached video. Duct seal is @ $3 for a 1lb block at Ace or Home Depot...Lowes only had a 5 pound bucket when I stopped by there...FYI.

Thanks, I mounted the finder and transducer and went to put in the final connection for the battery and can't find my battery charger. Back to Wal Mart I go. Hoping to fish around the Shalimar Bridge tomorrow afternoon.

Dont know if you realized this but the Kraken has a "transducer scupper" its a scupper that a transducer will fit in to from the bottom of the kayak..Thats how i would mount if I were you. Keeps your xducer in the water and it doesnt hang below the hull and get in the way
