Nice to have fitout ideas


Recommended Posts

Recently purchased a new Caribbean Reef Runner, we fish blue water only, no lakes or estuaries, and looking for ideas that other have used for fitout.

To date we have fitted;

27 Meg radio & VHF radio


Plumbed bait tank (still to plumb the other side)

Rod Holders x 4

Bait board

NMEA2000 GPS/Sounder used for engine instruments also

Rocket launchers

Planned additions are;

Trim Tabs - can't fit QL's due to limited access

Anchor winch - Micks winch sitting in the cupboard ready to go this week

Outrigger mounts & poles

Still working on;

Caddy to store knives, pliers lip grips etc so anyone onto a fish can get hold of them easily

Net & gaff mounts

Pockets/dividers for side pockets in hull to allow stuff to be stored separately

Would be interested to know what others do to get their stuff organised and make their boats work well as fishing platforms.
