    I have the orange cord reel now. Was wondering if there is one that could be attached to a boat rail?

    Why not get one of the winch reels that's is mounted to the front of the trailer to reel your boat on the trailer. It could be mounted anywhere. There use to be an old timer that had a home made one. It was a peice of bar stock bent in a U. On the inside he had an old rolling pin with a threaded bar through the center with a handle on the outside of the u bar. Only problem was once it started to unwind it wouldn't stop. Maybe an used down rigger spool.

    I saw a video where a fellow used a seat base mounted to the transom corner brace. He used an orange cord reel mounted to a short section of 2x4 and had a piece of pipe attached to that to slip into the seat base. Search Youtube for long line instructions, it was on one of those.

    5 gallon pail, feed it in. hook one line to the next, as long as you keep the end clipped to the outside, it can never get tangled. I store about 6 lines clipped together in one pail.
