I'll be rigging a Hobie Eclipse to fish from this year. The H Crate goes on no problem.
Looking for input on rigging the rest of the eclipse:

-H Crate with cover (store paddle in H Crate)
-Rod holder on Mast (definitely needed after a few trips without it last fall)
-Sonar/GPS (thinking of attaching a mounting plate in the rear for the transducer)
-Cup Holder on mast (gotta stay hydrated)

-The H-Crate soft cover is a great, practical addition to keep your things dry.
-We don't really offer an option for specifically mounting a rod holder to the Eclipse handle bar, but your best bet would be to try mounting a 1.5" RAM rail base that is suitable for round rails (Hobie Part #72023028), and RAM rod holder of your choice. You've also got your 4 built-in rod holders on the H-Crate and an option to mount Hobie's H-Rail Rod Holder (part # 72020098)for additional rod holders at the back of the Eclipse.
-We don't currently have a suitable option for mounting a fish finder/sonar to the Eclipse...this would be a DIY thing
-We do offer a bottle cage for the Eclipse handle bar. You'll need two parts: Universal mount (part # 72020503) and Water Bottle Cage (part # 72020510)

Happy fishing!
