Decided it was time to give the old Stealth Evo a bit of a birthday on the weekend.

The hatch lid has seen a few fish finders and mods over the years by myself and previous owners, it had quite a few holes drilled in it which I'd filled with epoxy glue every now and then but with all of them it was starting to look like crap so I gave it a good sand, spray with spray filler, sand, spray filler again, sand then a few coats of matt black to give it a new look, reckon it turned out ok in the end :y:

Also you may have seen my last post on the new Raymarine Dragonfly install, it was very temporary so time to make it a bit more permanent. I fitted the inspection hatch and glued the transducer to the hull under my right calf.

Plan was to give the whole kayak a good cut an polish but time ran out so I'll save that for another weekend :y:

Your stealth would be very happy with its upgrades. Nice work to Jason.
I do plan to give mine a birthday upgrade one spare weekend. :^:

Yea thankfully all the rain has turned the outside into one big clay pit so indoor stuff gets a look in now :)
