Need rod storage material answer

5 posts in this topic

I am extending my rod storage by 2 1/2 feet in my 16 foot Lund Rebel and am having difficulty finding a plastic/fiberglass type of material, (similar to the material used for plastic kitchen cutting boards)for the end caps. I only need two pieces about 7 inches wide by 20 inches tall, hopefully about 1/2 to 3/4 thick. Does anyone know where a guy can purchase this type of material or have any other suggestions as to another type of material or methods, (other than treated wood), I could use? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

years ago while residing in Iowa, there were numerous manufactors producing various types of roll plastic. it was produced in various lenghts and thickness. they made it for walling in hog confinment building.Should be able to locate on line..Other option would be shower stall wallboard. Definately would be water proof & easy to handle.

They are approx 11" x 24" x 1/2" thick. I don't know if you can make enough material due to the cutouts, but they are $ 4.00 each.

Find yourself some Starboard, I think it is made by a company called King. It is easy to work with and is impervious to sun, salt, water, and will not crack, rot, fade, or warp. It is used for an incredible number of things by every premium saltwater boat manufacturer. If it holds up in southern saltwaters, it will be totally bulletproof in northern freshwaters. grin.gif

    • You can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
    • whats a samsquatch?  lol
    • Nope....don't need friendseyeguy54..... It was a darn samsquatch!
    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
