    Default Custom Fishing Rod Storage System in Boats

    I got this from another web site and thought it might help someone like it did me. Some discussions about this in "The Watering Hole".

    To start with I found these instructions on another website. I am not the original designer of this system and do not want to take credit for it either. I constructed this storage system and it has been great for what I want it to do. I just thought I would pass it on to you guys if you want it.

    Rod/Reel Storage System
    Making boat rod locker pattern.

    Materials needed
    Pattern construction material-cardboard or const. paper
    Golf club tubes-those found in older golf bags
    Neoprene kitchen cutting board no more than thick
    Desired size hole saw for rods (I suggest size of golf tubes to be used)

    Building Instructions
    Using either cardboard or construction paper align in the existing
    Rod box much like the separation baffles in some of the bass boat live wells.

    With this cardboard/construction paper trim the edges of the paper so that the paper fits snug against the sides of the rod box.

    Once pattern material is trimmed to fit across the rod box remove and lay out on the neoprene board. Place this pattern securely on the neoprene and proceed on drilling holes to place golf tubes.

    Using a marker to position the holes to be drilled in the pattern
    (It is now that you decide how many rods your system will hold)
    (Allow enough space between holes for support approx. )


    Once these holes are drilled in the board place the board in rod box for fitting and securing in box.

    Cut neoprene board to just a little bigger than the pattern to be sure of tight fit in rod box. (It will be easier to trim to fit than to add on to fit)

    Once this board is placed in box securely then insert golf tubes in desired holes and secure tubes in place and I hope these instructions made since.
    The toughest thing I ran into was finding the golf tubes.

    Good Luck
