Outriggers for a canoe W/PICS

any of you ever make a set of outriggers for a canoe? I just made a set and I am just waiting for the paint to dry before I mount them to the scanoe. I used a set of Scotty rod holders and came out of them with 1-1/4" PVC schedule 40 pipe then into a tee and reduced both sides of the tee down to 1/2" schedule 40 pipe and added 2 crab floats to each side of the tee followed by some sch.40 caps on both sides of the canoe. As soon as I get a chance I will post some pictures. They fold up out of the way when your under paddle power or in my case a new minn kota trolling motor.

A friend and myself got to try these out at Keystone power dam this past weekend and let me tell you if you ever wondered if they work? THEY DO! What a difference! The canoe is really stable on it's own because it is the older Coleman Scanoe flat bottom. The rigs are pinned into place through the rod holders and are currently painted all flat black. VERY sturdy for what they are!

Experience the Xtreme!

Re: Outriggers for a canoe?

Yes. I made a set yea s ago. Used them a few times but now don't bother. I used structural alum. Wasn't very hard. Made them for the kids when they were smaller and cause I could!

Your spot I NEVER go back
My spot I expect the same
