    Congrats on the new boat. The fun is setting it up. Take your time and it will turn out the way you want. I am still setting up my boat. Still need to put a new floor in it. I hope you enjoy you new toy.

    Congrats on the new rig! It looks like it will definately do the job. What kind of floor are you planning putting in it, aluminum or wood? If you plan on wood, feel free to check out my "Lowe 1652 in progress" post in the Boat Modification Journal. Mine turned out great, and is reasonably light, all the details are in my post. Good luck.

    I too have a Lowe 1652 I was at the boat store looking to upgrade my motor when i noticed a used boat rigged with 18" sections of 1 1/2" pvc rigged as rod holders attached to the stringers with automotive hose clamps. You can never have too many rod holders. If you use baitcasting rods you can use smaller diameter pvc.I use 9' and 10' surf casting {spinning rods} and the butt is a larger diameter. As long as your flooring doesn't come up too high you should be ok. I have 5 pvc rod holders on each side. I also have 9 driftmaster bases at strategic locations. How many you need depends on how many rods each person is allowed in your state. How and where you fish would also determine the placement of rod holders.In a river with a lot of current spread em across the stern.... if you drift lakes put them across one side it's a cheap way to customize 2 10' sections of pvc will run you $4 at Lowe's or home depot and I had a bunch of hose clamps laying around in my garage
