I used Cisco Fishing System to schedule my boat rig. Near the back of the boat on the port and starboard boxes I mounted a pair of 24-inch track. I mounted midship on two
more 24-inch length of the track that I use to set up both a rod holder tree or three rod cradle. I removed the box so I could include thru-bolt the track and then replaced.
On the bow I added a piece of 5/8 inch starboard so I rig was a MotorGuide shortcut brackets which are used for both my MotorGuide Xi5 and for my Anchor Wizard.
This boat requires the use of gel batteries because the battery box storage is modest in size. I 27 group Optima batteries and they worked great for me. The Optima batteries, there is just enough room to mount a two bank battery charger in the front battery compartment.
Freedom is a simple fishing boat and runs very well. I am convinced that you will love you as much as I love mine. Thank you for taking the time to write and again Congrats on the boat purchase. I will forward a few pictures of my boat.
