installed new carpet and rod box

Recommended Posts

Well guys i finally installed new carpet and a rodbox in my 88 bass tracker 17ft. i wanted a rodbox put in because when i bought it there wasnt one and i hated not having it with rods all over my boat.  it looks pretty darn good if i do say so myself. i can fit  8 rods in the locker. and believe it or not we  took my whole boat apart to do this remodeling it was hard work. took 3 weeks with someone helping.  this guy really helped me out alot and hooked me up.

Everything looks GREAT. But, I don't like the rod holders.  Be careful not to break your eyes when puting in or taking out.

VERY nice work.  I have the same boat as you do.  I've often thought about installing a rod locker, but concluded that I didn't have enough room.  It never occurred to me to move the passenger seat to the center.

Great job!!! Any tips for a rookie. I plan on doing my boat(Fisher aluminium) this winter. What type of carpet and glue did you use? Approx how long did it take?

Very nice job,

I also would agree with the rod locker, I would suggest some plastic tubes for the tip ends to slide into.

Is that a BPS rod in there I see?

Nice work!  I would put some felt on the holes to help protect the rods.

I agree on the felt idea.  Rough water w/ rods banging against wood is a recipe for a broken rod.
