Like the original Mod Pod, the Ocean Kayak Tetra Mod Pod II Upgrade Kit provides you with the necessary parts to install the Mod Pod II hatch cover on your Ocean Kayak Tetra series kayak. With the Ocean Kayak Tetra Mod Pod II hatch installed, it provides storage and easy access to your fishing rods from the center of the kayak. The Ocean Kayak Tetra Mod Pod II Upgrade Kit has tons of mounting options for your fishing rod holders and more. It also features a molded in ruler and molded in bottle holder. Fits on the Ocean Kayak Tetra series and comes standard on the Ocean Kayak Tetra Angler series.

Making a large hole in your kayak is a bit scary. I really took my time with it and went slowly but patience paid off and it came out really even. Once the hole was there putting the pod cover in place was a snap! It works very well and is "water tight", I even took it through a few ocean waves and it really performed!
Got the upgrade kit for my 2011 Trident, didn't like it. You have to install the gasket yourself, not sure why for 79.00 OK wouldn't do that. The rod holders work with Scotty's but don't lock with those mounts so the rod holders can fall out. The slide tray in the kayak can't be used with the new pod cover because of gasket configuration. I'll probably just use in the ocean because it seals better than the stock cover but will be going back to stock cover for the most part.
OK... So I agree with others (to a point) that the $79.95 price tag is not easy one to swallow at first but I'm happy I committed to buying this product! The Mod Pod II is a quality item and seals the console very well. Care needs to be taken cutting the opening in the kayak (goes without saying) but the installation work isn't tough if you are comfortable with DIY projects. I'm looking forward to having "access to much more storage" in the hull as this is a huge "plus" on the Ocean Kayak Tetra 10. This mod also allowed me easier access under the hood to add YakAttack tracks and an SAE connector and the wiring for my fish finder. I'm just getting started! I'd buy this again for sure!!
A real necessity on the Tetra 12 yak considering there is no stern deck hatch option.
