Have you built your own?

I've sold a few sets of the Scotty ones -- they look well built and we haven't had any complaints, so I assume that they performed well and that the customers are happy with them. It wasn't sea kayakers who bought them -- it was rec kayak owners.

The reason I ask, is that I plan to make my own.
I have a design that will be hydro dynamic and easy to make.
Just gonna work on the mounting setup.
I'll keep track of the costs to see if they are worth making copies of.

www.kayakfishingstuff.com sells a kit that seems the best of both worlds. they fold out of the way when you're paddling, then swing into position once you get out there, and double as rod holders when you're not using them. Cost around $100 US

Looked up the outriggers on kayakfishingstuff, they are sold as "ram outrigger kit" under the retail shop section. Based on two Ram tube fishing rod holders, four lobster fishing floats, and pvc pipe, they are independently adjustable from the cockpit, and are designed to to be stowed on the stern while paddling, then deployed on the water, when you reach your destination. $99.99 us buys the kit, plus pvc you buy locally.
