Sue, thank you for that photo. Today I mounted the yakima rollers to help aid in trailering the boat. I don't like how they worked really well, but for now they'll do. I need to get a full width drift boat roller, I'm sure that would be a better fit. I mounted four of the PVC rod tubes, two per side, one facing fore, the other aft. I mounted them to the frame with a pair of short straps and they seem to be pretty solid. They are only 10' right now but when my local store has more of the tubing I'll add some 3' or 4' extensions so they can accomodate spey rods too. I might get to start working on those notches in the tubes flared ends after the dinner/bed time routine. I also added a small standing platform under my seat so that I can stand to scope out the line ahead. There is still no full floor beneath me so I can fred flintstone over skinny stuff. I got a bit done while the girls were pulling weeds.
