Ahoy, Jfutchiii. What rod holder are you referring to?

The rod holders in the seat back should have a rubber-like tube in them.

The optional rod box that mounts on the side rail should have "hooks" for three rods, reel end, inside the lockable box and another piece with three round holes for the rod tips mounted near the forward end of the rail.

I hope that answers your question. If not, try different words.

Are you talking about the rod holder that is mounted on the starboard side rail of the 16-17-footers? Look at a few threads down in this forum - "Flying top". Taylor posted 2 of my photos in his second entry. Is the box you're talking the same as the varnished box shown on the starboard side of my old boat? The box holds 3 poles & reels on 3-sets of hooks. The forward support bracket has 3 large holes for the tips of the poles (just aft of the forward end of the starboard handrail.

Do you have the forward piece with the three holes for the rod tips?

The wooden hooks are separate pieces that are attached to the inside of the end pieces of the box, they hooks hang outboard (the 2 hook pieces are roughly 5 inches by 7 inches, 1/4 or 3/8 inch mahogany wood with the 3 hooks cut out beyond the edge). When the rods hang in the hooks, the reel is placed between the hooks. When the removable top/side is placed back on the the box, it encloses the reels.

If you have holes on the inside of the the end pieces, it is likely that this is where the 3-hook piece was screwed onto the inside of the end pieces. Should be 4 holes.

If you don't have the hooks, you'll need to make the two pieces. I'm telling you this from memory. I sold my boat 5 years ago, but I refinished the wooden rod box several times.

I wondered what that box was, Jim P. Is it to protect the reels from weather or from thieves?

Taylor -

It does both, but I think its biggest value is that its a great place to stow fishing gear - out of the way. As you can see, I also stowed my paddle in it. A place for everything, and everything in its place. It was an option in the Whaler catalogs of the '60s & '70s.

jimp is correct. Whaler refered to it as "Lockable Rod Storage" and I believe it was offerered even into the early 1980's.

I can't add anything to this thread, but am looking for information on the vinyl/plastic inserts found in the rod holders installed in the teak seat back on early Outrages and Montauks. I am missing 2 of them and have not been able to locate except in black. Any help is appreciated
Thanks,
Frank
