Wes, tell us how you made that mega crate!
First, I went by Waffle House and picked up two black (free!) milk crates. I knew the back would hold something larger than a standard crate so once I got home I started thinking and measuring. Luckily I managed to cut along an edge already created by the design of the crate that when zip tied together made the perfect size! I also wanted some angled rod holders so I added those and a few more for misc tubes just in case I need them. I'm super pleased with the setup so far.
I have 2 RAM revolution tubes on order for the front and I plan to add two more behind the seat on each side. I'll use the 2008 RAM tubes for that. I've always wanted something that will hold my rod once I bring it in. For example, if I need to re-bait or re-rig my rod so I don't have to just lay it down in my lap. Should work perfect.
While I was staring at my progress I had another bright idea. Wonder if I could make the FF wires run down the PVC instead of having to purchase one of those through hull plugs??
What do ya know, it worked!
Yes I did have to drill a hole in the sealed mast tube but it's a very small one. I also plan to add some goop to the top hole and pretty much keep the FF mount permanent and just remove the head when not in use. It will still all come out easily if need be.
