    I am interested in building a rod rack for the back of my 2072 Seaark and would like some ideas. If you could please post some pics of yours, that would help give me a place to start.I have always fished lakes and I am interested in fishing some tournaments on the Mo river around the Kansas City area. That is why I am planing on building some type of rack. Thans for any info/pics!

    I wish I had a camera, I just got done making a pretty sturdy one. You should check out the library, that is where I got the idea for mine. If I remember right there were at least 2 or 3 different ones. I used 3/4" galvanized pipe, two flush mount bases (not sure what they are really called but that is what they look like), and 2 90 degree elbows. Then put whatever rod holders on that you want, I went with 4 driftmasters mounted with 1" rail bases. Worked pretty good last weekend. Anyway, definitely check out the library cause there are some good ones in there. If you don't like them, at least it will be good to spark an idea. Hope this helped.

    Ryan, I would post some pics if I had any... or if I had a camera. When I was up in KC on the Kaw last weekend me and a buddy bought a disposable camera which probably has a picture or two that would give an idea, but I doubt he's got them developed. I'll ask though, and he does I'll have him email them and I'll post them.

    Here is a pic of mine. Not too easy to see the construction. Formed from a single piece of 1 1/2" Chrome-Moly steel, then powdercoated. It's nice for the river because it is high enough to keep you from feeling like you might fall out of the back, plus it is easy to work your rod under other rods to bring a fish to the side of the boat.



    Oops, won't let me post it again, it is already in another thread.:confused2:

    Thans for the replys! SkipEye how high is yours off from the back deck and how did you fasten it to your boat? Is it the same one in the picture when you post something?
