Living Waters,

Interesting set up. I only have one Tandem Island. But I'm interested in your roll bar. What is it made from? How is it fastened to the boat? Is it in rod holders? If so are you worried about the strength of the hull material? Do you use it to help yourself stand up or to hold on to while standing?

Any info or pics would be great.

Thanks.

Puget

Sorry for the late response, here are some pictures of my new roll bar and old roll bar.

The purpose of the roll bars are these.
1. Keeps the sail line from engaging and lifting the rods out of the rod holders and tossing them into the water.
2. Provides rod holders
3. Provides tool holders
4. Provides a rod holder positioned specifically for trolling
5. Can be modified to act a a holder for a back cushion, lifting it and providing a solid support for the back.
