I have a Lund with the sport tracks. I didn't think they would be strong enough for downriggers, so I rigged a downrigger board 2x8 that I attach with turnbuckles to eye bolts that I attached to the boat. When I'm not running downriggers I remove the board. The sport tracks work well when I'm dragging boards for walleye or long lining for early lakers in the shallows in West Grand Traverse Bay. just my 2 cents..
I guess I'm a little confused because I'm looking at buying a Lund Sports Angler and in their ads they show downriggers mounted. Can you mount a track system to the sports track and then mount riggers ? Any and all help is appricated.
I use the tracks for holding cup holder, trolling and boards but I would never use it for down riggers. Dig the ball deep into the bottom one time and you'll be spending more money to fix that problem than tearing out a few bolts on a rigger board. I love my Lund but if they say this works in advertising, they should back it up with some durability testing and publish that. Just my opinion...
