It looks like i'll be duck hunting on the mighty susquehanna river this year. I'd love to have an 'outrigger' fabbed up for my kayak. any ideas?

Do you want it fancy or simple? Permenant or just for duck hunting? If you want it simple and cheap I would go with a piece of PVC pipe for the out rigger. You'll have to be creative as far as connections and support go. Best mod ever for my Kayak was a cheap boat compass on the deck in front of me. It's great for paddling lakes and large reserviors.

I don't know much about putting on an outrigger, but I've heard of the compass thing and my Father in Law did that on his ocean going kayak, it really is a nice feature. I also knew a guy who built (or bought) a little rack that went just behind him to put some extra cargo. Nothing big that would cause you to tip easy, but he would put a couple bottles of gatorade on it and some food for easy access. However, being behind him, it took some flexibility to reach what he wanted. All in all, it was a decent addition, but I don't think I would do it.

PVC outrigger mounted in scupper holes.

Used milk crate behind the seat to hold cooler tackle poles etc

A rechargeable 12v deer feeder battery to run some LED lights etc. can add a solar panel to recharge the battery for long trips. You can even add a 12v power receptacle for a phone charger or other device.

And my favorite for keeping cool...a 32" square built from PVC with a tarp attached to the top. It extends up from my milk crate where it is mounted and is adjustable to provide some shade for those long float trips. When not in use, it can be spun back or taken off. Kinda think bikini top for a jeep.

Outriggers made out of PVC mounted in the rear rod holders (if you have them) and make the floats out of the crab pot buoys. The foam type that are kinda cone shaped. I've even seen somebody that mounted them using a ram mount so they could easily swing up and out of the way for paddling, then back down when they were needed.
