    Just awesome guys! Really great to hear all of the amazing compliments and even better to hear that some of you are running to the hardware store to give this a whirl!! Can't wait to see what you all come up with.

    Yeah, its fake. We have 2 large dogs and they quickly turned my beautifully manicured grass into a dust bowl. Fake grass was the only option and we really like it.

    Still looking forward to shaking hands with the king of the Big Bad Reds!!!

Didn't really think that one through, not too smart haha. Also, how rugged is that transponder(sp?) for your fishfinder? seems like it would get quite beat up and dragged around on the ground? Thanks again for posting such great manual I'm sure it took quite some time. I'll definately post up a picture of the finished product when it's done.

    Jon, this is an awesome comment. Much appreciated!

    You have a few options with your jacket: a) wear it, b) stash it in a seat back pocket (this comes standard with the Super Fat Cat and Prowler, you can buy it as an add-on to the FC4). This is an ok option as water still does get into that pocket from time to time. or c) put it in a dry bag and put it in the storage area behind your seat.

    The transponder has held up great. You just have to mind it when you are landing your boat. Just know it's there and try not to drag it around too much. And as an added thing...I buy ALL of my fishing electronics through West Marine. I ALWAYS buy the extended warranty. It's cheap and they will replace your equipment NO QUESTIONS ASKED! If something does happen, you just bring it in and grab your new sonar. It's truly that easy.

    Looking forward to seeing your build!!!

    Sweet dude! Yeah, I played on Los Angeles Faction(D3, D2, D1), Rockstar Factory(D2), Rockstar Wrecking Crew(D3), Critical(D2), and now am happily playing on the Los Angeles Hitmen(D2) for X-Ball and 7Man. We usually practice at the "Ranch" in Whittier, as well as SC Village, but we'll travel as far as Camp Pendleton and Warped in Castaic. All depends what team(s) we are practicing.
    Awesome man, tell Sonny over there with the Hitmen that the Blowfish send a Hello!

    I know this is awhile back, but like The Mona Lisa, some things are timeless! Thanks for this. I got some great ideas. You rock!

    I saw this bumped to the top while I was in the Sierra and never got a chance to say THANKS!!!!

    I also have some fantastic news...as was hoped for, the initial idea was revamped and revised into what the creator is allowing me to call "Rod Rack 2.0". Its a more compact frame with virtually the same versitility. Full details and review coming soon but to offer slightly more of a teaser in the meanwhile...the mystery creator of Rod Rack 2.0 is none other than float tube guru Kirkboat, and with that guy's OCD about getting things perfect, you gotta know this rack is fantastic. And to prove it, I've already made the switch!! A big thanks to Kirk for putting the time and thought into this. You guys are going to love it. Keep posted!!!!

    Looking forward to that. I've seen that rod rack up close and personal. I love my current set up but def like the slick design of the 2.0 design. Would def be looking forward to seeing how it's done looking to out fit the tube that has more rod holders but more compact and with a quicker set up.

    If it's the one i'm thinking about where it's a single tube with holes I think there was some pics posted a while back.
