A few final touches

Being in a yak is great, capsizing in your yak not so good... potentially very depressing if things aren't secured tightly, or on leashes to allow safe movement. Rod leashes and a paddle leash were purchased, the rear tankwell boxes were secured as was the bait box.

Where I tend to fish in the Solent area there's a decent tidal flow. Capsizing followed by a few seconds disorientation, could see you drifting away from the yak with little hope of swimming back, not a pleasing thought!. It's a question that's been asked before and the answer soon came my way in the form of a long board leash. I purchased a 9' ankle leash which is secured adjacent to the front hatch. Should I capsize I'm not going too far.
