A little modification to my boat. “Irish Wake” name incorporating the W logo, and a removable deck I use when fishing. Note the rod holders and the fish finder. I simply toss the transducer over the side. It’s on a small float collar. I used a scrap piece of melamine and attached a 1 ft wood strip that fits in the grooves. It lifts out with a twisting motion. I hang a can holder underneath, which I made from a plastic liter bottle. I cut that in two, the bottom half being the holder and the top half making a very nice little funnel. Most of the things I attach are tied with a small line to the bungees. I never saw a need to make a paddle holder when simply tying a line will do. Simplicity.
