Me and dad have made lots of custom things for my kayak over the past year and we are still trying to improve it, with the small amount of space we have!
Some of the home made stuff on the kayak:

Front Rod Tubes (Prevents rod breakage by Turtling)
2 custom rod holders
Bait board
Custom made flag
Custom made rod leashes .

Some of the bought stuff:
Chilly Bin (Fits perfectly and can hold a decent amount of fish)
Rig Bag
Anchor with buoy
Viking ProFish 400 Lite
Catch 290 [Retired]

Cool set up mate. The tubes at the front for your rods is a great idea!
