Reload paddle holder.

Here's where you get your hands dirty, so to speak. So if you like to build or customize things for the yak, this is your forum

The paddle holder on the Viking Reload is on the left hand side.

That wouldn't be a problem except the running rig is on that side too, and I find it a pain unhooking my paddle and getting the leash tangled up when I'm trying to haul anchor. (One of the most dangerous times if there is strong wind/current).

So I looked at mounting a holder on the right hand side, but it already has the brackets for a fish stringer attached there.

Has anyone else had this issue and mounted a holder on the right?

Does the reload pod have a bungy on it? On the P400 I use the bungy to hold the paddle across he kayak while fishing (especially if I get strike while trolling).

My reload has a paddle bungy on both sides, and a bungy for the lid, oh and one holding softbaits - heaps of options for left hand, right hand or trolling options
