i made a dash board for my pelican canoe out of 1x6 and used bolts on each side with large washers under it so the lip on the side would wedge in between the board and washers. i bought 2 flag pole holders at home depot for $5 ea., they type you mount on your house that have teeth interlocking together with a wing nut. a friend had some arm crutches i cut the arm cuff off and used the crab pot floats attached to the crutch with a pvc T. i can run my trolling motor on hi and stand up and cast. the boat is still shifty with sudden moves but it won't turn over.
