Finally got my landing gear installed on my PA 14. It was a monster to install. We finally used fishing line and a customized clothe hanger to get the bottom plate installed. I will post pics tomorrow.

I finally got an opportunity to attach some photos. The landing gear bracket is secured by a threaded plate that must be installed inside the Kayak. I had my buddy who stands 6’ 5” stretch his hand inside the kayak and he could barely reach where the holes had been drilled. We had to use fishing line and a metal hook made from a clothes hanger (pic attached) to install the mounting bracket. I love the set up but it was extremely challenging to install.

Here is the hook we fabricated in order to hold the plate in place. Image

I wanted to see if the rudder and skeg would drag. And it doesn’t.

Thanks, I think they do. The kit includes a longer middle bar to fit the width of the PA. It’s an awesome set up.
