rod holders for 1 1/2" (40mm) A Frame

I have been doing some searches on past threads and have found lots of references to rod holders for smaller diameter tubes, has anyone sourced anything for 40mm A frames? Cheers

I looked for absolutely ages with no luck. Getting someone to weld a couple on is the answer I reckon, like pic.

I actually found rod holders that will work for that size. They were at Boat US in the US. The clamp on and you can rotate the angle. I bought two of them and installed them easily on my rib.

May not be the posh answer , but i cut a few 12" lengths of plumbing waste pipe and strapped them to the a frame near the deck with tie wraps .They worked a treat

Yes on the PVC pipe!

I split some PVC water pipe and used it as a shim inside the collar of the standard rod holder, tightened her up and it worked great. Once in a while one of the holders will rotate a bit but a good knock gets it back into position.

Appearance wise you can't even tell what I've done!

Tie wraps - that is posh. Thought you'd have used gaffer tape
