I was inspired by another member (don't remember who) who had made an aluminum rack for an AR 230 he used for fishing in Alaska. I thought it was an awesome idea but would be pretty heavy and I wanted to be able to quickly convert back to a wakesports type boat. The rack weighs 28 lbs without the downrigger on it. Carbon fiber tubes and the aluminum is handrail hardware.
I've used it before without the downrigger but I just installed that today.
Man that's too cool! Great job!

Thanks for the compliments! Into my third season using it and still works great. Carbon fiber tubes are impressive; I've been slammed into the rack a few times from waves and it has always held solid.
