    Default Pics/ideas of ceiling mounted rod rack inside boat

    Looking for pics and ideas of your rod racks mounted to the inside of the pilot house ocean boat, please.
    I would like to hang 4 or 5 halibut rods on the interior of the Wooly pilot house over the table area, horizontally from the ceiling of course.

    Any suggestions, lessons learned, etc.... I'm interested.

    Thanks,
    BK

    I had half a dozen of these mounted in my old Hewes: http://www.westmarine.com/buy/tigres...rs--P004851432

    They worked great.

    Thanks Pete.
    Wonder if Derrick has any inside, or Doug on his wooly?
    Looking for a project and I need more secure rod space, thought it would be neat to see what others have and go from there.

    As far as I know, they don't. I really liked these ones and have seriously thought about adding them to Patience.

    A bud of mine uses the same ones, but had problems with the rods popping out of the "clip" mounts on one end. Fixed it with an eye bolt on either side of the whole spread of rods and a bungee stretched between them. Done.

    Pete. How did you mount them in your old Hewes? Since Hewes doesn't have a suspended ceiling, did you just drill thru and seal around the bolts? I've always wanted to mount some in there, but didn't want to drill the holes.

    Thanks Brian, I'm sure the wife is going to be real happy now that I have another boat project because of you....

    I have these in my cat and they work very well. I think Cabelas and West marine also carry them and they come in 2' and 4' models and a couple color options as well. It is nice to be able to adjust the spacing on the rods. http://www.amazon.com/Dubro-Products.../dp/B004U6KM6W

    I use a set of these in my boat, love em. I use two of the little tiny bungee cords on each side to keep the rods in place while I'm running. Clean install, looks nice.

    My Hewes had a headliner. I just ran screws through it and into the supports that ran across the roof. Mine was an older model than yours, so your roof might be a bit different.

    I couldn't afford what Spoiled One used so I used your standard plastic horizontal rod holder. There are many brands. My recommendation is to get some of the small (3"-6") gear ties, the rubber coated twist ties, to secure the rods even more to whatever rack you get, so they don't rub too much or bounce around.

    Like the idea of the twist tie to secure them, thanks!

    Can't wait to see what you come up with. I'm really good at stealing designs. Lol

    I use the ones that Mel Rose suggested and they work very good. I got two sets of them and put up a full set and then cut the second one in half and added length to the first. Works good

    Here's a photo of the Dubro Trac-A-Rod in action. I have two sets of racks on each side of the boat: one for shorter halibut poles which fit in front of the space for my head, and the side pictured for longer salmon rods...

    This is a link to my C-brat photo album with pictures of my recent rod holder project on the boat. Had to break down the downrigger rods but otherwise I'm pleased how it turned out.

    These are the rod brackets.
