Rod Rests on a Rib/Sib

Hi folks,

Just got my first Sib, only had solid boats previously. I have gone for a Prowave 4.2m Ocean HD, with a Tohatsu 20hp 4 stroke.

I am looking to use it for both freshwater and saltwater angling.

Does anyone have any experience of attaching rod rests of various types to such craft? I have seen the bison ones on ebay but they look a little flimsy imo.

All help appreciated.

Jules.

Welcome to the board

Depends whether you want them mounted on the transom or just stored upright? I have a stainless transom mount bracket on my boat but it gets used to hold my dive flag. They just screw into the transom with wood screws assuming the transom is wood?

There is always the milk crate rod holder.

The only issue I could see with something like that is losing a place to sit. Or snagging it getting on or off the boat. Otherwise it looks like a decent type of mount. Not sure I would trust that exact rod holder as it looks like the rods could easily bounce out. Make sure to use a leash.

I fitted the Bison rod holders to my 8mt Aircraft rib, they are strong enough to hold a Bimini which I adapted. The slot in rod holders do hold the rods well. I over clad the fitting with a hypalon patch for extra strength

Make that 3 for the prowave club.

I also have been considering rod rests for a while. My problem is I fish for common skate and they can smash the rod holders off the boat. My last boat had stainless bolts running through the rests to strengthen them

What I have decided to do is get about 4' of plastic waste pipe. I will cut the pile length ways for the middle 2' so in effect I have 2 tubes joined by a length of strong plastic. I will put the pipe under my fuel tank which will give a tube rod rest on each side of the tank. Since the tank is strapped down it should work out good and strong. While it might be a bit of a pain lifting up the tube to put the rod in the rod will lift straight out and thats the important bit.

I'll take some photos once it is all made.

Wow, the Prowave crew is growing!

Thanks for all the help with rod rests. I've gone for two conventional ones screwed to the transom and three stick on bison mounts down each side with Scotty rests attached. hould catch something with that lot!
