    BOC.
    I have 14 Driftmaster DuoPro's 1/2" on my SeaArk, but I have been reading a lot about PVC rod holders and all the different applications. I am putting these pictures of a set up I built for my buddy's Bass Tracker about a year ago.
    We have used the back holders a lot on the Arkansas river. We have never really needed more than the bungee on each end. The front holder would be good for lake fishing, but he is using it tomorrow turned 90degrees for drifting on the river. Again, 2 bungees will be enough to keep it in place.
    The PVC is obviously slid down over the seat poles.
    If this idea has already been posted, I appologize, but do hope it gives someone an idea to work with.

    Like I have said, my buddy's PVC rod holders have always worked great when we set up and anchor fished. Today, I drifted in my SeaArk and he in his tracker. They did fine out the front and back.
    One time, we had 2 rods out of the front, but with no bungee's. He just stood behind them with his arms out to the side. I yelled that he looked like a preacher at the pulpit.................oh yeah, he is a preacher too.
    Anyway, they worked great.

    Put Driftmasters (or Monsters) on his boat, like you have on yours. PVC is made for rocket launcher type rod racks perhaps, but not for rod holders. From what I can see in the pics, the holders are designed to have to push the rods out of the holder towards a fish, instead of picking the rod up to hook the fish. Anyhow, sorry I'm so contrary, but I never liked PVC or any plastic type holders very much.

    This is perfect! I think on my next paycheck I'll be building this! Probaby just a double for the front and a double for the back corner (opposite I sit)
