okay cool, how long was the center rigger you used and was the mount 45 degrees?Yes, I added a center rigger to my old 265 - double rigged it and had the halyards attached to the top rod holders coming down the sides of the hard top support bars. I had a carbon fiber rigger and mount that i bought directly from Lee's Tackle.
okay thanks!!A friend at our marina had 18-ft gunnel mount Lee outriggers. He bent one near the bottom. I used the top 12-ft of it and the small 45-degree mount. Single rigged it and it worked great for the WWWWFB bird.
I put that rod in the upper holder on the stbd rear leg of the hardtop, essentially just behind the helm. Very easy for me to monitor it.
Used the two lower holders on the rear legs for the long lines on the outriggers, and the gunnel rod holders for the short lines and flat lines. I had three holders on each gunnel, but this arrangement always worked very well for our usual seven rod spread. I also had a centerline vertical holder on the transom and, with a release clip on a pad eye below it, could run a short line down the center, usually a nice spreader bar.
