    While I was home from Iraq on R&R I made my new Rod Rack for the back of my boat. It works great and the Monster Rod Holders are awesome. Steve makes an awesome product. They look great and worked great. Well worth the money. They will last for years.

    Nice looking set up Scott. Just make sure to use heavy duty straps, becasue the Mosnter Holders can take the abuse you don't want the strap to be the weak link in your set up. :wink: :smile2:

    Looks great, did you mount it in the fishing seat hole, and if so what did you use that had the same od as the hole?
    I wanna build one for my boat this winter, and not sure what to use thatd fit in the hole and be sturdy

    Daniel, I just used the seat posts. I went to walmart and for around 13 bucks i bought a seat base and welded a piece of metal to it and drilled holes into the metal for the rod holders. Removes quickly and stores in my rod box if needed. On the ends I put eye bolts for the straps to hook into and can rotate it to either side and restrap if not in river current and want to fish off the side. I built it this way so I would not have to drill into my boat and so when the family goes tubin it is removable and not in the way. It took me around an hour or so total to drill all holes weld the base and mount the Monster Rod Holders. Easy Good Luck

    You did a nice job on that Steve, I've been scrounging for ideas and came across one simular to this. YOURS looks much nicer, those Monster RH are sweet too. I wish I could afford em.

    I was looking at doing something similar. It would be nice if there was something you could use to replace the straps. Something to lock that seat base to whatever position you wanted.

    I think they do make the base and post that have like a keyway that does not let the post swivel. I did my first rod rack like that but just drilled a hole in the base. Then I welded a pin on the post that fit in the hole. Tada! No straps. I got the idea from the way Slider has his set up.
