    I Leave tomorrow morning on the Intrepid. I'm debating with myself whether I should bring a milk crate with rocket launchers for the upper deck or not? I'm bringing 12 rods so some will go upstairs. I'll be packing the SUV up last minute so need to have a good plan. I think I already have too much shit backed up but you can't use it if you need it if it's sitting at home.

    I'm not that familiar with the boat...

    Hey Rick, long time no talk. Not sure about the crate, but best of luck on your trip. Let us know how it goes.

    Take it and some bungy cords. You can strap it to the lower rail upstairs on the starboard side behind the crane. Won’t be in anybody’s way at all.

    Like said previously behind the crane is the only spot for it except against the stairs which can get tough. There are maybe 60 spots next to the crane and in the central stand above for longer rods depending an how many you have over 7.5’. Have fun Rick!!!!

    You are going with only 19.....there will be plenty of spots in the bow area for the longer rods just put them at a angle......but there is room for your milk crate behind the crane as stated.

    Good luck !!!!

    I said maybe for a reason Fishy. Why don’t you tell us exactly how many since you are the expert?

    between the one on the starboard rail AND behind the bench that may be pretty close. First read I pictured just the starboard rail, but second read realized it included behind the bench seat

    TAKE YOUR CRATE ROD HOLDER!

    On trips longer than 5 days I take 2 custom made milk crates that hold 6 rods each as I prefer ALL my gear be up top other than the 2 outfits I will use on deck at any given time... your gear is MUCH better protected up top (less bump ins from other anglers, less deck hose spray, less over the rail spray in rough weather, etc.). Just do as Dave suggested and secure them real well with bungees or better yet nylon parachute cord. One of my prime criteria for riding an LR boat is whether or not I can store my gear up top on the longer trips... if they say NO... I simply don't GO!

    Jig Box #5.jpg Reel Milk Crates.jpg

    My crates are heavy as I lined the bottom of them with some granite 1/2 inch thick tiles I had left over from an interior redo, I also have a narrow plastic waterproof box that rests between the rod holders (down the middle) on the bottom where I store my heavy 8oz - 24oz sinkers. I also lined the bottom of them with the same flat tire tread like rubber material I used on my Bowen jig boxes... bottom line: they don't slide around on the upper deck and the parachute cord keeps them from tipping over. So far they have ridden on 6 different SD based LR boats with NO problems.

    20 rods fit behind the bench seat......I doubt there are 40 spots on the starboard rail but I could be wrong.....
