The parallels between traveling fishing teams and those who enjoy camping are closely aligned. Being well organized, prepared and having easy access to your inventory can make a trip much more enjoyable. This ultimate rigging table accomplishes many of the same attributes as setting up a good camp. Captain Chris explains, “It’s very convenient to have all your rigging accessories on one table. It keeps us organized as we travel to different docks.” This two-man rigging station comes complete with dual washdown hoses, rigging floss holder, cup holders, umbrella holders for shade and even lights that fit conveniently in the side holes for rigging after dark. The Starboard is easy to clean and a cooler underneath holds supplies and anchors the table with bungees for windy conditions. It takes time to build but the convenience pays off in the long run.
