    79C04E01-32E5-4D51-8540-71D4023AC20E.jpeg Added two bench/storage boxes. Made from 1/2” FPVC, light and easy to work with. We’ll see how long they hold up. Also added a bow rod holder/ bin for life jackets, etc. Switched to a 3 gal tank for more leg room, can drift the bay all day on 2 cups of gas! Took it out Sunday with the fam hooked up to the new vehicle, everything worked well.
    Next is hardwiring the GoPro so it will last more than 20 mins. Already have the brackets and pole mount for the transom. Need to buy the cable to hook up to my battery and should be good to go.

    Thanks. With the kids, time on the water is very limited. Gotta maximize the enjoyment!

    Thanks for sharing, I had no idea this forum section existed. Im working on my small Skiff as we speak, and didn't realize hard wiring up a gopro was possible. I bring extra batteries, but tend to be lazy when a battery goes out. I would love to see what cable you purchased, and any details you might have on making this happen. Thanks in advance. Rig looks fun, and I hear you on the kids. I have a three and one year old.... time on the boat does wonders for a life reset.
