    Hey all just wanted to update you on the catfish crestliner .Well she is finally finished,just the way i wanted . I had some trouble figuring out some rod holders ,couldnt find anything that would hold the rail right . so i did some looking in the members library and came across (member) Whistlers homemade rod holders , and they work great , i have a total of eight holders . i am ready for them flatheads now :wink: . Thanks for looking and thanks BOC for helping me build the perfect cat boat

    Rob,

    Looking Sweet! How is your rod holder attached, through the plywood via screw or a bolt?

    Looks good, real good!
