I would love to see pics of what you all have in your boat for rod storage.

You might check out the photo pages that illustrate boats from some of the Wooden Boat Festivals from several years ago. Check out the 11 albums attached to Rick Newman. I took a variety of pictures, I believe that there are several with rod holders. Check out Greg Hatten's boat I know for sure he has a good setup.


It’s not elegant, but it works for storing two extra rods out of the way, zip ties!  I snug the rods under each hand rail and just zip tie them into place.  They are secure and out of the way if I need them.

Thanks Gregg, Good idea

I've been thinking of adding a couple of lengths of 1 1/4" PVC and slipping the rods in there. 

It doesn’t really help if you’ve got a finished boat but when I first started building I pictured doing flats boat style rod tubes in the number 9 frame and tucking them up under the deck. I think it’d be possible with 1 inch tubing and a slightly wider frame/taper on that frame. If I build another boat I’ll probably do that

boulder boat works has a nice style, round holes  in a block for the handle ends and a piece that looks like waves curving around to hold the pole section. both attach to your ribs so you can set the placement to match the poles and boat.
