I've taken mine off in the water before to get weight up the front end but watch out for the split pins if you have them on the axles. That pic was a snapshot from my video of the WWA 2018 at Oban in May. However I do take two empty 5 litre cans sometimes as it secures the main tank beautifully. Here's the link if you havn't seen it.

Ref the fishing with the spray hood and anchoring Pete........ I attach my anchor to the white painter line with the black karibena which is resting on the port carry handle and let it slide around to the front below the spray hood. When I want to retrieve it I pull the blue rope you see running along side the boat and it pulls it back around below the spray hood. Magic!! :thumbsup :cheers

Here's a pic of my rear end, oo-er missus. The wheels are straight up but they also tilt out in the normal position and the rocket launchers are perfect. In the pic I have the locking holders (241L) and I have the rocket launchers set at an angle so I just unlock them, turn 180 degrees and face them down if they are not needed as I have another 4 mounts on the seat. 2 locking and 2 flush. I also angle the launchers out to the side at 45 degrees when trolling to get a better distance between the two trolling lines. Hope the pic helps.

And what a lovely rear end you have Hobbit :thumbsup Sadly my wheels come right over the transom, wouldn't mind but they're only small ones. I'll work round it though, I'll take the wheels off in future once in the water, hopefully it won't be cause too much inconvenience...Do you normally carry that amount of fuel or had you been on a long trip?
The rocket launchers work well from the seat mounts too!

That was the set up I used last week...I'd give the flush mounted ones a go if I had wooden seats, but don't fancy drilling large holes in my alloy ones...

I think I only use my flush ones for my cup holder at the moment Pete.

I like that :thumbsup I've seen a similar set up on a Kayak, they had a small pulley near the front and one just behind the seat, a rope with a loop ran between the two, the anchor being attached to the loop...At the moment I have a length of rope with a loop in the middle and a carabiner at each end which I attach to "D" rings on either side of the SIB. Saves leaning over the bow to reach the anchor line...

I drop my anchor as normal, then when at depth put a loop knot (can't remember it's name) in the anchor line and hook the karibena through it. I then connect the blue retrieval line making sure it's still connected to the boat lol, then drop the lot. Boat swings round, sharp end to tide and off you go, anchored correctly. Reverse it all to retreive.

Sounds like you have made life a lot easier Andy, and I appreciate the advice :thumbsup I'm thinking of getting a lighter anchor at the moment, currently have a 5 kilo Bruce and looking at ways to lighten the load a little...

That's about the right weight Andy...I was looking at a small grappling anchor, I'll see if my cousin can weld one up for me...

I've cut the insert for the bait tray and ordered the ball and socket bracket...I'll have a play around with different combo's!
