I'm looking to add more under Gunwale storage for fly rods and hoping to keep factory look. My 2020 21 SE came with a single set of the holder below on either side but I'm thinking of adding a second pair per side.

Does anyone know who makes the factory set or have some take offs they're want to part with?

Another option is move port side to starboard and add a more generic bungee rack to port to hold hook and mop.Screenshot_20200722-070233.png

I think Parker uses Lee Tackle rod holders.
I have a 2007 2120, On the baby Parker’s they are useless. I modified the under gunwale storage.

Removed the OEM rod holders, screwed down a piece of starboard - into factory holes then added normal gunwale rod holders, I used Boat Outfitters.

Nothing modified, used factory holes.

The previous owner mounted the hook on the side, (always in the way), because it wouldn’t fit and/or too hard to access.

I made a fish cleaning board the fits in the new rod holder for salmon season, again no modifications, just pops right in the rod holder, and it‘s right beside the wash down outlet.

Similar setup what I'm thinking of running on the port side. On the CC, there is plenty of room for 9' fly rods, but it only came with one set of holder rings vs two, as in your before pic. I only have a pair of holes to re-use as well on either side, so I'll be adding some no matter what my solution is.

Leaning towards moving the second set to starboard and adding a rack like yours to port.

Here is another option.. generic 4 row bungy racks. The one on the starboard side (no interference from fuel fill channel) has been modified with a "T" shaped piece of white starboard to extend the mounting point aft to get a bit more clearance in the bow and prevent rod tips from bouncing against side of hull.

I have a 21SE and am thinking about adding these to the gunwale. I noticed the bungee racks screws are mounted on either side of the rack itself, measuring almost 3.5" and the gunwale is not nearly that. Are you only using one side of the screws to mount? have they held up? just want to make sure they are secured the best for expensive rods haha I have an iFly mount which has been great but I do like mounting my rods under the gunwale as well.
