Wanted to know if anyone is willing to help me modify my new pontoon boat. (9 footer inflatable) Wanted to add a few extra rod holders, raise the seat about 6-10 inches maybe put solid flooring of some type to allow my feet to be out of the water. Thanks for any help.
Just did mine dont raise seat its perfect on hot days and easier to use your feet to control, i put a 50 pound minn kota way over kill and dsi lowrance that kicks butt , thinking about hitting barr on sunday if you want to meet up if your putting a motor you have to register it.
If you want some truly sick ideas on rigging, check out various 'toons rigged by the California Bass 'n' Tubes clubs. You can view the rigging gallery here: [log in for link]
I've modified my 'toon a little (those of you who've seen it can chime in, if you'd like), with rod holders made out of PVC for both storage and trolling, a transport wheel, and a mount for my Lowrance M68/S. Most of the mounting was done with 1.25" to 2" PVC, cable ties, and a minimal amount of drilling. Here are a couple of pics that might help - I'm not on the same level as the Bass 'n' Tubes guys, but my setup works.
