    Why thanks Lee! I even put two cup holders on it too. Works pretty well too. I can't (yet) tell you how it holds up when a 10 pound bass takes a bite of bait though....

    Hate to say it but I'm imagining it with fewer rod holders and more cup holders...and plate holders...and maybe a flat panel mount for the occasional sporting event viewed from a floating lounge chair...

    In all seriousness, though, very nice. I love how creative everyone here is with things like that, and more importantly the willingness to share it! It does gots me thinkin' though... :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

    Now that would be a mod!!!! Get to crackin' and post up your pics when you are done with that mod!!

    These are just some things that I did. I got this idea from someone else, but made it myself. There are WAY more creative people out there than I am.

    Like the idea of the fishing rod holders, I happened to be at the local auction a few months ago and there was a plastic Bar Table for sale that just happened to be the same color as my Boat so it gave me an idea and i managed to get it for a few pennies, I got home and threw away the long upright stand and cast iron feet that was connected to it and after a few drawings during the evening went to work on it the following morning, Welded a stainless ring together and incorporated a couple of small stainless rings to accommodate cup holders made a few upright stainless pillars and fixed the small rear table pole that came with the boat to it and job done, It swivels around and also folds up to allow easy access when boarding onto the swim platform or on the move, Total cost a mornings work and about $10, Now you have me thinking again as if i haven't got enough to do, Good Luck

    That's cool @farrelltravis ! I am wanting to start fishing some off my boat. What did you make it out of? I've seen some guys install the rod holders in the back platform along the edge, but I do not want to drill a hole that size in my boat.

    Late post I know, but check out http://mateseries.com/ I got the plastic ones and chrome covers so the cost was resonable. I put them in the swim platform cup holders. They look great and work great as a rod holder and cup holder.

    wanted some multi purpose holder (rod and cup) on the stern for trolling or simply holding rods while sitting on the stern.
    Went with Mateseries as they met the need, and looked good.

    Open as it drains into the wet locker, which drains externally (not into bilge)

    For how most of us use/store our boats (fair weather/covered) draining into bilge is not likely a big deal, though

    Where did you get the mount for the pole?
