Post Kraken mod
The kraken has a large transducer scupper and a live bait tank pump scupper . As I am using neither of these and thinking they may add uneeded drag .The pump recess in the deck is under and behind the raised seat, anything dropped could roll down into there and drop through so.. I filled them in. Expanding foam and Bondo caps. Done.

And the pump well. Both the expanding foam and the Bog break away easily from the hull. The caps may need All Clear to keep them in place later, and will be easy to cut/machine a slot for the transducer when I eventually get one.

Swapped out the strap and buckle which needs two hands to close, for a one handed bungy ( scruffy for now, I'll redo it more neatly now it works out ok) also added saddles for leashes. Through bolted and backing washers.
