Hello, new to this forum, first post. I have a 13' solo canoe that I am outfitting for fishing and am building outriggers for. I have crab floats and adjustable rod holders so they can be out of the water till I need them. I am looking for suggestions on how to mount them but still be able to remove the whole assembly for transport or when not needed.

forum. Most 13' canoes are wide and tubby, and don't need outriggers. But if you need places to mount rod holders, an outrigger frame might be an option.

Remember that you're trading cruising ease and maneuverability for illusory stability.

The boat is very stable, but I want to be able to stand with out worry when fly fishing.
