I've been waiting on the 2015's and was supposed to get a yellow PA12. When we unwrapped it at Estero River, surprise, its Olive. I didn't like it at first, but it has grown on me. Just waiting on my custom SeaDek kit and maybe I'll add the micro anchor when they can ship the Lithium battery and YakAttack has their mount ready. The H-rail and easy FF/transducer install are what set Hobie apart for me. The rail is like one big gear track.

I'm a SC native and learned how to fish on Lake Hartwell, long before BassMasters ever had tours there.

Lowrance HDI 5 with GPS. Really nice to have water temp, almost hit 5mph in my lake with the turbo fins (wind aided though).

Yes, I need to tighten my anchor trolley!

Great looking yak, Jody! Those h-rails are an amazing addition to the PA series. You've made good use of the mounting options and still have room to add more.

Side note: the rear 8" hatch doesn't have the gear bucket. The new deployable tracking skeg runs right underneath the hatch. Making it basically an access point for running transducer cables.

I really like the built in rod holders. Although the H rail rod holders don't work very well with spinning reels, I use them for a paddle, stick-it pole, etc.

Got my SeaDek kit installed with some other additions!

My Bison Cooler makes for a great backseat (fish weren't biting from the front seat)
