Roll Bar/Main Line Riser/Sail Riser/Rod Holder

I (Kevin) have no idea what to call this thing, but we get a lot of requests for measurements, so here it is! =) I originally made this line holder because I sit in the back of our TI and I got tired of getting hit in the head every time we tacked. It went from a main line riser -> riser w/shotgun rod holders -> riser w/shotgun rod holders w/GoPro Camera mount.

It’s made with 1 1/4” PVC (1 1/2” for the shotgun rod holder part) and was quite simple to make.
Notes:
1. I built ours so that it would go around the Hobie Livewell yet have strength even in the bottom section.
2. I’m 5’6” tall and the line holder is made for my height.
3. The measurements include the 1” that each piece of PVC goes into the fittings
4. They make this nice cap that fits into the “T” piece that fits the GoPro mount nicely. =)
5. The first line holder I made was built on a single post, but the pressure of the lines against it in higher winds (15mph sustained) snapped it off like a twig.
