    Hoping some one may be able to steer me in the right direction for some home made rod holders for my boat.

    Check the library, there are quite a few different ideas there for rod holders.

    I have been checking them out for my boat

    If you come up with something different then what is in the library or build on one of those designs post it here. We are always looking for more library articles.

    :) I have researched the library, some good ideas in there, I will probably piece some ideas of several of them together, whatever I come up with I will post in the library.

    Here's some bank rod holders that I made and have used them in the front of my dad's boat before. They're easy to make and come apart in 6 pieces for easy carry and/or storage.

    Sold my boat last year. Found these pics. Rodholders are welded stainless steel tubing. The rod butt fits into a foam sleeve bonded into the larger tube, and is secured with velcro. The channel is from an aluminum handrail, and is mounted to the engine cover. The rodholder bases are machined aluminum, and allow vertical and horizontal angualr adjustment. Pics show 4 rodholders mounted, but actually made 6. Sadly, I let these go with the boat. Boy, I miss it.

    ramrod,

    looks like a sturdy design. Do you have this as an article in the library? I looked but couldn't find it. Seems pretty simple, but i can't figure out what those pieces that the rods rest in at the top are.

    I've been using 3" pvc pipe I just got the bottom at an angle so I can dig it in. Very cheap and inexpensive so I don't really care if I forget it behind. For a few bucks you can get a few holders.

    Ramrod,

    I copied your design and built a rod holder for myself last night. I took it down to the lake today, and gave it a test run. They worked out great. Rep points to you.

    Thanks,

    Alan
