Cape Island Pimped

PostFri Oct 03, 2014 7:16 am

Hi all,

Decided to add a few accessories to my Cape Island from my local boat Pimper.

Wanted a removable bait board fitted to the rear casting deck that was functional but not obtrusive to the rear casting deck, something that was sturdy and not rattle while on the water. Pretty happy with the results, removable by the 4 wing bolts that can also have nylon nuts fitted under for a more permanent fit if wanted.

Also wanted a rear boarding ladder to make it easier to board the boat on the water or shore. Water test tomorrow and will report back.

Regards
Aaron

That is definitely an interesting trim tab - Swim platform setup. I like the big bait board. Would have been nice to combine as poling platform too. Cool.

Looks great. Being able to remove the bait board like that is a nice touch!

Water tested today in not so favourable conditions....thanks weatherman for the bum steer!

Anyway passed with flying colours, no rattling or movement. When the upper section of the bait board is removed, the remaining structure comes in handy as a grab rail for the boarding ladder.

Cheers

Very well done & glad you are happy. Definitely one of a kind boarding ladder.
