I made a double rod-holder for my Sport and Revo ages ago, so thought I'd have a go at a similar
model for the A.I.

All I wanted was a simple couple of tubes to carry the rods while not in use. So I just used a few
short lengths of 40mm PVC pipe, along with two 45 degree 40mm junctions, and a bit of that
horrible, blue PVC glue...

Here's the result:

Like the ones I made for my other yaks it slots into one of the the moulded-in rod-holders behind
the seat, and is a two-in-one holder. I only made one, but a pair of them would be handy if you
have extra rods to transport.

The added complexity with the A.I. is that you have a sail and rope whipping around behind you
and it's always a risk that a rod will be flicked out the the holder by the sail. I did my best to
angle the holders to (hopefully!) prevent this, but time will tell. The rods are leashed,
but I'd prefer them not to be dunked!

Cheers,

Mike.

Nice thing about PVC, you can screw it, saw it or scrap it if it doesn't work out.

What I can say, though is "if it CAN snag, it WILL snag!"

Let us know how the rocket launchers work out.
