Default Rigging Recommendations For A Mariner 12.5

I purchased my 2013 Mariner 12.5 back at the beginning of the year. Now that things have settled down in my personal life I'm ready to start rigging it for fishing. So far it has a fish finder mounted on a board to the left side, anchor trolley, and a 2008 ram tube mounted to the flat area behind the seat (right side). I plan on using it in the bay and close in on the Gulf. I know the mariner is gaining popularity. So if some of the owners would provide some ideas/photos it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Come on now, there has to be someone out there that is proud of their ride(s). I would truly appreciate some insight on how to configure mine..

I'm watching this thread patiently myself. Have you looked in the "show your setup" section?

I have done some rigging on my mariner. I started off making a side mounting board out of a cutting I got at Target for $10.00. Then I added a 12" piece gear trac to it, so I can change out some different accessories I have a zooka rod holder on it now. On the front of the board I put a 4" piece of trac for my FF & transducer arm, I did this so I can remove them when I don't need them. On the right front I have another zooka rod holder. Behind I have my fish bag, to the left of the seat I put a ram tube for my net.Right behind the seat on the flat area by shortage hole I put 2 pieces of 4" gear trac.

I made a crate when I first bought my yak but since then I have gone to the black pack, on top of the black pack I added 8" gear trac on both sides. This where I put my video pole. I have three rod holders on each side of the pack. I know it sounds like I have a lot of gear trac but I like to be able to move things around to get them out of the way if I am not using them. So far I am very happy with the set up. Maybe this will give you some ideas. You are welcome to stop by and check it out. Here's a few pics.

Speckhunter944, thanks for the post. I truly appreciate it. The plug and play leaves a lot to be desired. With that said I like what you did with the tracks and the versatility that they give. Do you use an ice chest or fish bag? I would like to take you up on the offer to check it out. Thanks again!
