    Since I got the i11 dialed I have ram mount rod holders so I thought I would add the 1/4 bolts to float tube holder.
    2- 1 1/2 caps
    2-2" sections 1 1/2 pipe
    2- 1/4 x 1 stainless bolts
    2 - 1 1/2 pieces of fuel line to cover bolts when not in use.
    Then just pull ram mounts off cooler and add to float tube or visa versa
    Also added a 1 1/2 pipe section to make stripping basket more rigid 0812190955.jpg 0812190955a.jpg 0812190955b.jpg

    I'm betting you'll eventually sink.

    On one hand, geez why not just buy a boat?
    On the other, the way shortcomings are addressed (like the pipe across the front edge of the stripping basket) are pretty sano. Not only makes the whole thing stiffer, but errant loops of line can be pulled into the basket more easily.
    Too lazy to DO it doesn't mean I can't admire it.

    Have boats and kayaks but got hurt and can't use them yet. And float tubing 0812191215.jpg 0723191137.jpg 0118191011.jpg is very relaxing for the fly Fisher
