While for many the coming of winter is synonymous with fishing, kayak them fishing fanatics enjoy this moment of respite to prepare their kayaks for the coming season.
Today, Dave Dubé offers us a tutorial on changing your kayak in order to make it more stable with House made stabilizers.
Your tools, ready, Tinker!

Implementation of the basic “Scotty” on kayak
|Material||Features||Number of units|
|Rod support||Scotty (model 350)||2|
|Basis of the rod support||Scotty (model 241)||2|
|Screw in stainless steel||2 “X 1/4”||8|
|Well-nut||Int: 1/4 “Ext: 1/2”||8|
|Piece stainless steel||(optional)||1 foot ²|
|Foam floor gym||(optional)||1 foot ²|
Step 1 – Realization of the holes in the kayak:
(1) position the base of the support rod “Scotty” to the place where you want to install your stabilizer.Indicate the exact position of the holes in the felt. With a 1/2 “bit, drill holes at the appropriate places.
(2) perform this task in the 2 sides of the kayak.
- Take a ruler / square and draw guidelines on your kayak so that your stabilizers are the most symmetrical possible.
Step 2 (optional) – the piece of metal cutting:
* This stage offers greater durability to the Assembly.
(1) take a sheet of paper and put it in a relatively flat spot that covers the 4 holes drilled previously (see photo below). Then cut this sheet so that they can position themselves inside the kayak.
(2) position the model created on 1 ² of stainless steel foot, and draw him. Using a jigsaw, cut the piece of metal.
(3) then set this piece at the appropriate place, and enter the location of the holes in the felt. With a wick to 1/2 “metal, drill these.
(4) perform this task in the 2 sides of the kayak.
- Model the room so that it is as close to the holes in the kayak.
- Soften the edges of the piece of metal and the inside of the holes with a ‘buffer’ (see picture below).
Step 3 (optional) – cutting the foam piece:
*This step allows the protection of friction between the metal and the kayak.
(1) take the foam for gymnasium floors and reproduce a form identical to that made on the piece of metal.
(2) level this room.
(3) run this task on 2 sides of the kayak.
Step 4 – Setting the base of the cane on the kayak support:
(1) Insert the well nuts into the holes.
(2) place the base of the support rod “Scotty” in the right place.
(3) Insert the well nuts (the part inside the kayak) in the foam piece, then in the metal part.
(4) screw the 4 screws in stainless steel in the nut well in maintaining a constant pressure on the metal plate.
Construction of the stabilisers:
|Material||Features||Number of units|
|ABS pipe||30 “X 1 1/4”||2|
|Electrical conduit||30 “X 3/4”||2|
|Polyethylene cap||1 1/4 “||4|
|‘ You in polyethylene||1 1/4 “||2|
|Floats||13 3/4 “X 5 7/8”||4|
|ABS pipe||Scraps (melt)||Approx. 1 foot|
Step1 – Melt the ABS:
(1) cut the scraps of ABS pipe into small pieces about 1 inch ². Place these pieces in a Mason jar and acetone. Then close the jar tightly. Wait a few days to make acetone melt the ABS pipe.
- If the mixture is too hard, it of that lack of acetone, add this to.
- If the mixture is too thin, it lacks ABS pipe, add this to.
Step 2 – Assembly of the floats:
(1) Insert the electrical conduit pipe in one of the floats.
(2) place it ‘ you, then slide the 2e float.
- Insert the 2 branches of the ‘ you inside the floats.To do this, you need to use a bit of force.
Step 3 – Insertion of polyethylene corks:
(1) leave a piece of the electrical conduit to approximately 2 “out of the float. Sand him.
(2) then take a polyethylene stopper and then apply silicone on the inside.
(3) Insert the plug at the end of the stabilizer. Hit the stabilizer on the ground (on the side of the CAP) to make the CAP equal to the float.
(4) cut the excess of the electric pipe on the opposite side.
(5) apply then of silicone in the polyethylene plug. Insert the electrical conduit into the Cork, then hit the stabilizer on the ground to make the CAP equal to the float.
Step 4 – Insert the stabilizer arm:
(1) take the pipe of ABS of 1 1/4 “. Put silicone on the inside (the 3 “from the end).
(2) put also of the silicone on the free end of the ‘ you.
(3) assemble the 2 pieces.
Step 5 – Extension of the end of the arm of the stabilizer:
(1) sand the outer end (approx. 10 “) 30” ABS pipes.
(2) take the mixture of ABS + acetone which is based in the Mason jar.
(3) with a small stick, apply the Paste on the portion that has been sanded, all around the ABS pipe.
- This step is to expand the ABS pipe so that it hardly fits into the support rod “Scotty”.The stabilizer will get stuck and will cease to rotate. Several tests may be necessary.
(4) Insert the hose ABS ‘modified’ in the cane “Scotty” support. Have fun and good fishing!
