Default PA Rod Holder w/ Beach Wheels

Small simple rod holder design that also allows the beach wheels to be inserted and elevated to keep the arms out of the water when using the scupper holes. Very compact and idea use. I have used it a few times now and the ability to hear your drag in heavy wind is amazing. Let me know what ya think.

1"1/4 up to 1"1/2 for the holders. All Glued, no screws, Solid one piece, Used exisiting rod holders, also used the rubber covers as seals. Cut the hole for the PVC in them and used reel greese to get them through. Very rigid and little to no play. Used a beer bottle to flair the ends with a propane torch.

Paint is Krylon Fusion for plastic. Let it cure for a week before even moving it. It takes a hard beating and will not flake if prepped. I sanded all pieces and cleaned the pvc thoroughly. Painted 3 coats, let it sit for a week after final.
