I am looking for ideas on where and how to store my whisker pole when it is not in use.
My Mod1 has "pole clips" on the front of the mast... like you would hold a broom handle on a wall.
I just keep mine on the cockpit floor when I race or day sail. Keeps the weight down in the boat an off the rig. Clip it to a peice of line if you're worried about losing it in a capsize.
Whisker Pole Storage
I cut two 4" pieces of PVC pipe, made large holes on one side, then put a screwdriver through those holes to screw the PVC to the boom with stainless steel screws. The jaws of the whisker pole attach to loops of small diameter line attached to each end of the boom. This seems to work well.
