Over the last few months, I have been having the occasional problem of losing my balance in the boat while in the front, reaching for something on the deck. So I decided to build a safety rail for the front. Since it radically changes the appearance of the boat, I thought I'd post pictures of the finished product. My spider rig still fits in the front just fine. The black rod holders mounted on the rail are for long line trolling. I'll have my name on the side of it when my decals show up.

WM, yes I plan on going for cats soon. In the jargon of today, "sick" means it is good.
