    Default mods and add-ons for a HB

    I have an opportunity to pick up a 2 yr old HB and I'm wonder what mods and add-ons your guys have done to yours. Suggestions would be appreciated and pictures of those even more.

    It sure would depend on what sort of waters you want to prepare for: shallow rivers or in lakes, how much wind and waves do you plan to see? Also it would depend on what sort & size of motor you plan for it.

    But in general I'd start with spray rails if it doesn't already have'm.

    It has the spray rails but not sure about the seats. I will be looking at it on wed. What rod holders is everyone finding that works the best.

    How about a remote anchor drop?

    It has a 9.9 Yamaha

    My rod holders are brand name Fish On. Work great; they're screwed directly into my ash gunwales. I station a son in the bow to be my remote anchor drop. ;-)

    does anyone have any thoughts on screwing things to the vinyl gunwhale? Never done it before and not sure about size, type or style of screws and it it makes a difference.

    I'm also curious about adding swivel seats. I'm not sure about screwing a plate directly to the seat or getting the john boat seat clamp for the swivel seats and that way they can be moved around a little but I'm unsure about the stability of them. Any thought or insights on this would be appreciated.
