Default Rod Storage in the shower stall? Suggestions?

I've determined that the best likely place to store my rod/reel combos when not in-use would likely be in the never-used shower stall in the head. It's big and can be easily accessed and is pretty secure. What would be the best way to secure a half-dozen trolling set ups (mostly 114 senators and maybe one or two 30s or 50s) so that

A: I would ideally not have to go drilling holes and
B: the rods would be secure not to move around in rough conditions and break/scuff/scratch the shower lining?...

Anyone done something similar? Thanks all

No holes, you'll have to go with a Sea Sucker.

Vertical PVC pipe rack connected together by T's and L's sitting on the floor.

build a box about 12-18" tall that conforms to the shape of the shower stall and can sit on the floor- space out distance for cutting holes- cut holes in top and bottom of box and insert PVC so that the tube is supported at the base and top.

I did this same thing...but you do not have to secure them in the shower..they will only be there when you're at the dock...before you leave dock they go in rocket launchers/rod holders...come back..wash them and put back int he shower.

You're not going to travel with rods in your shower...I used to keep 11 rods in mine, internationals and tiagras..shortest ones first. also used to keep spreader bar bags hung up with the heavy duty velcro..one 3" piece on the shower wall..and one on the bag clear plastic...just press and it holds.

What if he's not fishing, but just going for a boat ride, does he take the rods off the boat?

If the vertical PVC pipe is 12" tall and the PVC framework fits the shower's contours, they shouldn't move much. Just leave enough space so the rods/reels don't hit the walls.

I'm thinking a large foam box. You could cut the curve for the door. I had a Rod Steward that was foam: http://www.rodsteward.net/
