Live-bait fishermen will particularly appreciate three baitwells - two large and one small. And rarely can you find as much factory-standard rod storage. With holders on the T-top, under and in gunwales and more around the transom, Sea Pro allows you to carry 16 rods. Our boat had pedestal seats, but the optional leaning post boosts rod storage to 20. Also, the leaning post provides very convenient storage for all those items you use constantly, like leader spools, terminal tackle and pliers. I think it's a better choice than pedestal seats.
