my zippers on my bags did not survive the first trip. one on each bag the zipper head broke.
I called them and a long discussion with one of the gentleman there who was really disgusted with the bags. He said he could send me replacements but they would last as long as the last ones.
the zippers say YKK on them, they are obviously fake china knock offs. I ordered a zipper repair kit off amazon for $10 and fixed the bags. The zipper heads that did not break i grabbed them with needle nose pliers and they shattered. I did the same to the replacement zipper heads and then gave them a hard squeeze they did not budge. I reused the zipper pulls since they were strong and already had the nylon rome securely attached. I gave the bags an aggressive tug on the nylon rope and they zipped and unzipped smoothly.
I invested in the storage bins that Jeff uses, so I will probably use them for one side, I will keep a bag on the other side. there are just some things that fit better in a bag. like my sleepy stick and some fishing tools.
my fish finder is completely waterproof so I am not really worried about where I mount it. right now it is attached to a bean bag and it stays in place pretty well. I bought some glue on trolling motor mounts that I am still trying to figure out where to use them.
one thing that this boat needs is more d-ring mount points, the ones in the front are impossible to reach to clip an anchor or a drift sock to. would also be nice to have a d ring in the back middle for towing the other half when she complains about here arms and legs getting too tired.
I really like the GTS system. I was dismayed when the guy said they were going to save some money going to nylon instead of stainless steel grommets. But they are trying to make it more attractive to buyers and lower the cost.
I really have not used it that much to have any more ideas. I have not used the apron. It think it gets in my way. I bought a full stainless steel sheet pan to replace it with, But I am liking not being closed in so I will probably not use it.
A wheel would be awesome. Having carried it to the water 3 times already it is a chore. that is without the 50lb battery and trolling motor.
