    I can't remember which offset I got and I have not used then in awhile. We actually moved to the coast and I don't trailer as much. Also, the concept of the supports is good but you have to really tie down the riggers too and they will bounce off the supports when you hit a bump. I think they are good for short hauls to the ramp but when I was hauling 120 miles to the coast before we moved I ended up just removing the outriggers and putting them in the boat.

    Hello, saw you got some outrigger supports from Birdsall and wanted to ask if you remember which offset you got? I am looking to do the same thing since I trailer my boat and would like the extra support. Thanks.

    Thanks. I am looking forward to using the tensioner off the gunnels this summer. I just rigged up my bungee's with quick release clips for the double hal locks. That should allow me to unclip if I need 360 fishability. I have never had a fish require an angler in the bow. I run my boat like a sportfish and everything is done in the back. I should have everything rigged up by next week. Down here in FL its like a sin to not attach the halyards to the T-top. I am ready to try it out this year off the gunnels.

    It's worked well. I originally started out rigging three lines but have since just ran two. I like the Hal locks a lot but removed the outrigger line caddies because the mono has too much memory. I also added teaser reels and used a piece of 400# mono to hang a glass ring off the outrigger closest to the first eye and use it to run teasers. I have a pad eye mounted on each side of the T-top forward and use it to clip my outrigger lines to when not in use and also run my teaser lines through it before the go to the glass eye. I like running them on the gunnels and leave the swivel open so if I do not to go forward its easy to just unclip it and slide through and clip it back. I can only recall ever needing to do that once or twice maybe.

    How are you liking your outriggers mounted to the gunnels? I bought some abaco halyard tensioners ( and intend to have mine rigged like yours this week. We are gonna experiment a bit with placement of the halyard line/hal locks, etc.. Any advice or observations with your setup? I have run mine off the T-top since 04 but wanted to go form the gunnel ( this year since I fish my boat like a sport fish and never fight anything off the bow. My only concerns are moving fish up to the box. I figure with the tensioner system it should work pretty well and give me plenty of adjustability. Any advice your willing to give is appreciated.
