    I'm glad I kept my C-Tug kayak dolly and didn't include it in the sale of the kayak. Instead of unloading/loading at the water's edge, I wanted to try it out on this rig. As a side note, I did move the C-Tug dolly closer to the middle before using it to make it more comfortable!

    Rod's and Reels should accompany me on my next encounter on the water! But this was a wonderful First Dance with the Disco 158!

    The wood cut outs still need sanding to take the sharp edges off, but here is what I think is gonna work out for me when I pull crank baits. I don't care for my rods to extend out sideways like I think most folks in kayaks do. I prefer to have the base in front of me where it doesn't get in the way of me paddling. When a fish is on, it's pretty obvious with the rod tip looking like it's dancing to the oldies. You just reach up and grab it and reel in your supper! Plus, when unhooking the fish or just tying on a different lure, you insert the rod in the rod holder and the line hangs straight down with your hands free to conduct the business at hand. It makes my world a little easier!

    I did not want to drill into the canoe and I wanted to be able to remove or relocate the holders as desired so I made the mini-holders above. I originally thought I would have a removable thwart to mount the rod holders. Then I thought I would just run the wood along side of the gunnels to mount the hardware. I began to think how much bulk storage it would be so I think the mini-holders will work fine for my use. They have wing nuts underneath to quickly remove or relocate them.

    I have a different kind of rod holder to push gigs up front. I really like the Hi-Tek rod holders and have used them before. They will be mounted in a similar way, just facing frontwards.
