Re: Front storage options on a marauder

Oh, I don't think they're there to get at on the water. More for beach trolley, camping gear etc .I was thinking of a running rig type of thing to go into the front well of my Viking 440 when I get it, otherwise it's a wobbly straddle and bungy cords |(

Re: A New Rudder Design from Viking ??

The Profish 440 I am picking up doesn't have a rudder fitted. If and when I want to have one , how easy is is it to fit it out at home? I've a bit of experience in the past, boat building.
