Think I finally have it setup the way I want after a long & slow rigging process. I've learned that slow is the way to go and a ton of research. Anyways, here's the setup. Let me know what ya'll think and if you have any questions.

- Turbo Fins
- Sailing Rudder
- Front Hatch liner
- Hobie LiveWell
- Hobie Cart
- Hobie Seat Pad (totally worth every penny)
- Hobie Anchor Trolley
- YakAttack 6' Steak Out pole
- Lowrance Elite 4 (powered off 8 AA Sanyo Black edition Eneloop Batteries)
- Ram Mount for Lowrance Elite 4
- YakAttack Geartracs 8" and 12"
- YakAttack VisiCarbon on mighty mount
- YakAttack NiteStripe
- Go Pro Hero 3 on YakAttack Panfish w/ Mighty Mount

Not Pictured
- Eazy Keel protector
- YakAttack BlackPak (used when not live bait fishing)
- 2 Scotty RodMasters 349 on Scotty Gearheads (can be angled on geartracs for trolling)

That's an awesome fishing machine, Dave! You've made a few more upgrades since I last saw you at Matlacha.

Yup, I can stand and fish in pretty much any condition. It requires some balance but how I fish from it 90% of the time.

I agree with FollowMe it is very easy to stand in the Outback. I have the same one but yellow. It is a great fishing machine.

I said I wouldn't do it and it was complete but I added a few mods. My Lowrance Elite 4 FF took a crap, backlight went out and sent to Lowrance for warranty repair. In the meantime I added a Elite 5 HDS and a bigger battery to power it. Its the Hobie FF install kit and I put it in the rear hatch since I never use it.

Also finally got fed up with the crappy seat. Constantly sliding back, sitting in water and sore after hours. I went with a Jackson Elite seat and installed it on 4 Yak Attack mighty mounts. Comfortable and yet still remains stable. It raises off the deck but the Outback is stable even when standing. I know Hobie is upgrading the seat for the 2015 models but I'm not upgrading for the seat. Idea from http://www.yakfisher.net/smffiles/index.php?topic=7362.0

Dave, Awesome job on the seat conversion. I've been thinking about replacing the plastic seat on my PA14 with one of those. Is it stable while peddling? Is it comfortable over long distances? You have put together quite a fishing machine!
