Layout boat rack

Postby LayedOut » Sat Aug 17, 2013 6:52 pm

Hey guys, has anyone built a rack for your layout boat to sit on the tender? I've been thinking about doing something, maybe even with a load and unload ramp.

Basically what we have now, without the cutouts. I'm wanting to make a nice aluminum rack. Thanks!

Is the wood rack used just for trailering or does it stay that way until the layout is put in the water?

Ours is for trailering and transporting on the water, till we set it in the water.

Do you worry about securing the boards to the boat or just strap them down once The layout is on.

Our isn't secured to the boat. Strap the layout down good and we've never had a problem even on long trips.

I tow mine. So I don't have to worry about a rack. I have a buddy who mounts one off each side.

Would rather put it on the boat so I can get moving.

Maybe. It's easier for us to tow 3 then stack them.

One boat I would just throw on the gunnel. With more I have the guys launch them while I launch the boat. Hook them up and go.

Really? May be a dumb question but do you really hunt all of those at one time in one area?

G maxson, I like the design of your rack, looks a little easier and stronger than what I was planning. Did you weld those brackets up, or are they available somewhere? Looks like you bolted them through. I have the rails on my Tracker, thought about bolting some brackets on that way. Thanks, D

Square stock steel. I just cut it into 5" or so pieces and then just cut one side off. Easy.
