Anyone have any good ideas or pictures of extra rod holder locations (I need about 8 more), gaff storage, bait tanks, and miscellaneous storage? I'm sure there are some ingenious setups out there.

What's with the hole under the RPS cushion on some Montauks? My '04 doesn't have one. Did BW do away with it? I would like to build some storage under there like I saw on some of the pics. Additionally, it seemed like a good idea so that the boat could be refueled with the tanks in place, specially if the are replaced with the 13 gal. Tempos.

Yeah, BW did away with it in 2004. Too bad.

I still believe that you can cut the 2004 RPS and create your own storage bin.

I guess one could cut a hole but there wouldn't be that "lip" to hold the storage bin. I guess one could glass the bin in place (although that sounds like a lot of work) or hold it with brackets that screw into the seat bottom from the top. Any ideas?
