Im looking for ideas for a high flyer rack. I will have twelve high flyers on deck during the day while trolling for tuna and want to keep them out of the way and securely fastened. The high flyers will be used for buoy fishing swordfish at night in the canyons. The boat is 42x15 with a large cockpit but that will get filled up fast with bonars and or a tuna box. The wheelhouse roof is a short split WH design. If anyone has pics or has seen a good set up and doesnt mind sharing it would be appreciated. Thanks. Jim

Jim I'll try to remember to take some pics of the set ups on my boats when I'm back to the boats tomorrow. We use 16 footers with 18"(I think) of cement on the bottom. Are you using the same?

It took alot of looking. Most of the permits are down south so they dont show up on Athearn.

The hardballs do work a touch better than the reflector, used both up here and had a better hook up ratio with the ball over the reflector when the current was running,

put a big enough strobe on top and the reflector fell over when a good fish was running high

Thanks PRD thats exactly what I was looking for. I should be able to squeeze a rectangular shaped rack on the port side where the dry stack used to be. Thanks for taking the time to get the pics up. All of you guys who responded, you are the reason I love this website. Thank you all!
