My son and I use these rubber rings with carabeaners (sp?) on them they slip over the end of bottle and you hook them where ever. Seems to work well. ou can get them at sporting good stores and I've seen them at other stores as well.

I found some clamp on pole mount cup holders at Wal-Mart that work well and I fit them to the the wing braces. One on each side. Very durable and removable.

I use the thing at the end of my arm!!! Its called a hand. LOL.. Had to do it! I just tuck it under the hiking straps or back into the cooler. If the air is honking you won't have the time to drink anything anyhow. Too much fun to be had. There are hundreds of options out there. Go to a bike store and buy a bottle holder for a bike and drill and tap into whatever you want. Use your imagination.... Good Luck!

On my old H16 I used some suction cup holders. They had a large suction cup on teh bottom and would fit nicly around a beer/soda can and go about halfway up the can. I would attache them to my paddle I had woven through teh tramp lacing. If you have a smooth part on your hulls they would hold there. I would also make a bottle noose and hang them from the boom. Since you don't have a boom that would be difficult.

I would avoid drilling and tapping into the boat. Just asking for one more place for corrosion to spring up.
