Last thread on the 1802 I promise.

There is no glove box or cupboard in the Trophy. I need a place for the logbook,fishing orders, many licenses and registration, insurance cards, and all the little things like sunblock, bottle opener, corkscrew, car keys, cell phones, and all that jazz. You can't throw that stuff in a cubby, so I screwed a mesh rail bag from a snailboat to the wall under the dash in the cabin. I can't get the bag to load, it's too big. It's just a mesh rail bag with a couple screws and fender washers. It wouldn't kill Trophy to put a mesh pocket in here somewhere.

These are the downriggers that will fill the fishbox.

These are the guides that will keep the wind from getting me a divorce while loading.

I put this berkeley twist lock rod holder under the dash well and the bow deck in the cabin starboard side. They keep the rods untangled and secure, and the rods can move to the cockpit holders if we want to catch a nap.(they are out of the way of the Admirals potty).

Finally, I mounted 2 more rod holders for the boat hook and landing net on angle on the port outboard wall. This is a good spot that leaves room to walk by and keeps them out of the rod holders or underfoot, yet handy for use.

Don't stop posting your improvements! These are all very good and needed additions to most boats. Even though you aren't getting many comments I'll bet there are a lot of folks reading your posts and starting to think about what they need/want on their own boats.

Good stuff. Keep it coming!

Jim are you in the PNW? I am down here in Oly. I like the mods on your 1802 matt, it's a great boat but light on amenities.

Yes, Im in the Bellingham area. Our old boat was a 24.5 Cierra. After a few years of overnighters, the kids lost interest. I decided to scale down to something I could launch easy by myself. Looked around for a long time and decided on the 1802. The boat is great for day trips, and I like the walkaround and portable toilet. With the four stroke, it is nice and easy on fuel, though I do miss my big boat when the weather kicks up.

Like the side rollers madmatt - I needed those a month ago when retrieving in a decent swell. My 2052 ended up side ways on the trailer in a split second, then off again - was lucky! But it did snap the end off one of the bunks!

Cheers Pete

madmatt192, I like the idea of adding the rod holders in the cabin. I was thinking about doing a similar addition to hold the stern light when not in use. My only fear was how thick the fiberglass is in the ceiling of the cabin as i don't want to start drilling and end up creating a new skylight:)

What size screws did you use to install the rod holders? Any advice for a fellow 1802 owner? Thanks!

I used the screws that came with the holders, about 1 inch I guess. The fiberglass and wood was thick enough where I mounted them under the dash access panel and the lower part of the berth bulkhead. the sides of the cabin above the walkaround and the roof are very thin (3/16) and I did go thru trying to put a coat hook on. I should have paid closer attention, you can tap on it with your fist and tell how thin or thick it is.

Good luck,

Matt
