Here is a quick walk-through of the 14. You'll see my solution for the park-n-pole mounting. Also, if you have input on included rod holders vs. added holders, I'd love to hear it! I want to use the boat's holders so nothing obstructs my back cast, but maybe I'm overthinking that?

Tight lines all! See you on the water!

Nice video. I like the keep it simple approach you are using.
A while back Bassfriend posted his way of carrying a stakeout pole or a paddle and I am using it and like it.
Look for his posting: An easy way to hold the paddle in my ProAngler by Bassfriend.
Hobie sells an extender for the rod holders that makes them more secure. They are in the catalog.

Nice job!

A suggestion if i may....instead of the stainless 90's and u-bolts (good job BTW), how about this-

Remove the side handle, add a flat stainless strap under each of the handle's mounts, install the clips and reinstall handle.
Will have the same end results without the added exposed hardware.

Just a thought..... :D

And a very good thought it is!

That is the way I originally wanted to do it. Given the thickness of the stock, I worried about the bolts being compromised as well as water getting in around handle between the handle and stock / stock and hull, etc. Plus this is the most non-permanent way to do it to see if I'm happy with the location, etc.

If I am, I will probably modify the design to do what I wanted to do from the beginning, which is exactly what you suggested. Great minds thinks alike!

Tight lines.
