I have seen in some of the past post where some one made rod holders out of PVC pipe. Any one know where these were posted?

I have seen them too they were made out of a 4 in. coupling cut in half with a hole in each side with one slotted to the end and directly on the bottom was a 3/8 or 5/16 slot about 2in.long around the circumference so you can adjust vertical and horizontal. Dont remember where i saw them. They did look like they would work. You could mount on a flat bar with a stand.

C.S. is that boat a panfish? I have a 95 model with stick steer that I have taken to Canada. Love to fish from it when it is not to windy.

No it is a Monark that I re-did like a panfish. Not a smooth ride on a choppy lake.

Where can you find the "PLASTI-DIP" coating ?

I think you should be able to get the "Plastic Dip" at Home Depot or Lowe's

I made a about a dozen of them. Cut blanks on table saw, Drilled hole through pipe with hole saw on a drill. Then sawed slot and section out. The center part of hole makes good washers for bolt and wing nut. That adds strength and does'nt let wingnut dig into slot. Did not see it used on his. I just sand or file cut edges smooth. The dip is just a perference thing .
