  Rod holders for three please
  Posted by: bananaboat on Dec-14-11 2:44 PM (EST)
 

My first and second kayak are sit on tops and are fairly easy to add rod holders. The only problem I had was when casting sometimes I would hang up on the rods in holders behind me so I narrowed my rods to just two. On my new kayak (native manta ray)it came with some tracks for mounting stuff. I think you can probably buy them as replacement parts and that would be a good way to be able to move and remove rod holders easy. The outdoor shop where I bought my kayak sold a dashboard for like $50.00 but I just mounted a nylon cutting board from Walmart at $6.00 and bought some allum. peices to drill and tap for the trak. It was kind of big so I cut it in half and made two bases and I mounted rod holders and a fishfinder. I drilled holes for tools like line cutters, pliers, line clamps and other tools. They work great as for a holder in front, it was so hard to get to on the first kayak that I didn't put one on the second.
