Has anyone put a green stick on a Grady that would be willing to share how they mounted the stick to the boat? I am debating putting one on my 265 express. Thanks for your help.

I don't have a green stick, but until I put the boat in the water, I get brown twigs and leaves all the time. Apparently they have their own "mounting system" as they are sometimes a real bugger to remove.

A single center rigger is a popular configuration in some parts. It allows you to get 1 squid rig back and up... Used to be popular on cape cod

Just curious where you are fishing that you feel you need a green stick? Seems to me that it might be a little much for a boat that size, especially when you consider the need for the electric motor/reel. I agree that a center rigger might be an option for you. I mounted a 15 footer on my hardtop and can run one high and one lower down the center.

yep, a lot more fun reeling them in on a TLD2 than winching them in on a bandit with 400# mono.

Tend to agree, usually on much larger seagoing boats. Not that it can't be on a GW.... Would be a head turner for sure.
