I just use 2.what kind of distance do most of you have between the racks,,,,I'll have a lot rod hanging over the back support, I would think that wind and bounce would wrap the rods around each other.

Rich I don't have a measurement but going to guess around 8-9 ft. Here is what I do. I use some Velcro straps designed as cable ties for computer cables. I wrap one around the rods about 2 ft back FTP the tip, pulling together but not real tight. Stopped all the bouncing together and tangles.

I bought the Cumberland crappie 8 rod holder and haven't mounted it yet cause its in the way everywhere. Wanting yo make a bracket off to the side of my boat to keep the rods over the edge of the boat. Anyone got any tips on this???

Have some weld a piece on to extend over the side. And mount like you were using the original set up.

Sounds like a good idea may but it on a hinge to flip in the boat for hauling the boat.
