Depthfinder installation on kayaks just got smarter with the YakAttack CellBlok Fish Finder Mount! The YakAttack CellBlok is a track mounted battery box and its top surface serves as a mounting platform for the fish finder display and transducer deployment arm. No more drilling holes in your kayak or routing wires! Simply loosen the 2 track mount knobs and the CellBlok allows you to quickly and easily move your fish finder from one kayak to another!

After a discussion with Chad Hoover, I've had an opportunity to re- evaluate this product. (See my prior concerns about weight and listing.) Putting the Cellblok in the bottom of my Perception Manatee 10 DLx did not work out well for me and I went back to the Trac mount system as Chad suggested and discovered that only when installing the Cellblok into the Trac prior to entry into the kayak, the kayak did temporarily list to that side. However once you are in the kayak, the water and your weight counter balance the kayak and there is no listing while paddling or fishing. Boy was I wrong. I stand corrected and now I'm real happy with my fishfinder/transducer set up. Now all I need is to catch more fish.....Thanks for the phone call Chad.
Thought this was the answer to my delima, what to do with the battery in the Kayak. I couldn't find any other battery box that fit it to keep it off the flooring. It seemed to make sense to put the complete package on a trac system. However I found the cellblok too heavy especially when the battery weight is added.The trac system must be side mounted for the 18' transducer arm to function properly and therefore the weight causes the Kayak to list. Balance is important. I'm very disappointed in an expensive battery box.
This product works as advertised and is built solidly although I find it quite heavy and makes my Tarpon 120 list to the side somewhat. I would suggest mounting the cellblock in the center of you yak and use a ram mount to put your transducer over the side. Yes, it kind of defeats the purpose of the cellblock and if you don't mind a slight weight shift it works very well
it works but not really made for new garmin 43 echomap. i had to use a scotty universal mount which doesnt line up with holes on the yak cellblock. i installed a 4" track which has 3 holes, of which only 2 line up with the yak cell block. this required 2 separate orders. despite these set backs, buying this is like voting for the president, the lesser of 2 evils. there really isn't any alternative on the market and it can be made to work. the ack video needs to be reworked to include other fish finders.
