This is my 2013 Assault.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

The FRAMELESS pontoons do pose a problem on where to mount things due to the oars.
I added Scotty glue ons which allow me to use Scotty fly rod holders, Scotty Anchor, or the Scotty Camera mount.

I got the NFO Apron and added a little more velcro so it wraps around the toons

I used Dog clips on the motor mount for quick connections

I used a 3" Nylon strap with quick clip for the Transducer

Use a Wing Nut so easy to raise and lower then tighten

I mounted a Ram ball mount to a piece of plywood which is the length of my side bag plus velcro on the bottom to hold it in place

Then I use a 4" Ram Mount to the ball mount on the Sonar screen.

I topped it all off with the Ultra Light Oars:

And the Omega Flip Fins

Too much? Just two rod holders, sonar, apron and a motor. Of course the side bags are rod holders too.
The seat is in picture #2 & 3. Very comfortable cloth seat.

Seriously though, that is a full on cool set up.

right next to the satellite dish.



Seriously, very cool set-up.. I like the idea of the frameless pontoons, but I heard they can sometimes get blown around a lot by wind? But.. you also have oars. Seems like you could cover a lot of water in your setup.

The Assault weighs 23lbs and is 8 1/2 feet long.
As far as getting blown around, everything gets blown around. I have had a donut. The diameter of the toons is 13".

The glue ons do require a two part "STA-BOND".

That is a GREAT setup. Not only can you float anywhere but you can float some nice rivers with that setup. I used to float rivers in Wa. with a pontoon, that looks way more stable. I think a trip down the Kern is in order for the summer!!
