Don't want to leave my rods outside, wanted to lock them in the cab. My pickup was a regular cab, not even a 4 door. It worked, and just barely, for my max length 6' 9" rod. It could be stored at an angle, just barely. My M.O. was carry the rods on the PA horizontal storage while driving, but cram them into the locked cab if I was away from the truck. Worked fine. The PA12 is a heavy beast. Awesome yak, very comfy for long days on the water, and the quality and features are unmatched. It's the Cadillyak. But be prepared for its weight, and you really need the pedal drive - it can be paddled but it's not great in that regard. Doesn't need to be trailered, but you'll want to launch and load very close to the water, and if not, at least have a tote system. I absolutely loved mine but traded down for a Hobie Passport. I miss the large dry hatch, fully adjustable comfy seat and the 4-rod horizontal storage, but no regrets. Any specific questions just ask. if you have rails or a place for mighty mounts: https://www.mariner-sails.com/ms-horizontal-rod-holders.html Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
