Umbrella holder for your boat

I know this is a little early but I am looking for ideas for how some of you have mounted patio umbrellas in your boat. The kids are getting to an age that they can finally spend some time on the boat and I don't want them getting burned to a crisp. Any Ideas would be appreciated.

Roostertails, match the size of the umbrella pipe to the size pipe for your running lights or use rod holders. We have done that and it works as long as the wind is down. If the wind comes up, be careful, lots of things break with a sail (umbrella) catching the wind. Good luck and have fun with the kids.

roostertails,

Just curious here, but have you ever thought of a bimini top for your boat?

I am seriously thinking of slapping a bimini top on my Lund Fisherman this summer to make in habitable by the kids during those hot July days. Just haven't pulled the trigger on make and model yet. Seems like a mid-level 8 ft bimini will run about $250.

I must also admit that this morning I was thinking the exact same thing that you posted.

honestly I used to think bimini tops were for the weak. Wrong. I spend two years doing all of my walleye fishing trolling the open waters of Lake Erie's Eastern Basin. There is no shelter from the sun out there and a bemini top is worth it's weight in gold. Umbrella holders might be a little old school and pretty worthless at 5 mph+ but I can certainly vouch for the value of a top.

Just make an adapter that mounts into one of your seat bases.  It works pretty well for me.  If you have a windshield though, just get the bimini top.

We use PVC screwed into the side of the console as a patio umbrella holder and as a net holder at times. It works great until the wind comes up.

Hey Guys, All of the above will work probably, if that's all you want but mine cost less than a good rod and reel and rotates around the seat and can't blow out. And if you don't need it one day just put the upright in storage and it is out of the way untill you need it. Just go to www.umbrellae-zmount.com and take a look at it. Thanks for all your input.
