Buddy of mine had a Pro Line with Tacos, and we would face them towards the bow, and tie them off to the cleats. All you need is a couple of carabiners that will fit through the eyes, and some paracord. It helped a bunch, but didn't take all the movement out of them.

I’ve used the gunnel mounts my entire life, and we never ran with them up. Even though riggers are pretty light, that’s a huge dynamic load applied to a relatively small area and you’re begging for something to break. I take them out, wrap them together and lay them in the bottom of the boat or strap them to the top of the t-top. Strips of heavy duty velcro has made this easy and fast.

You mean skiff bases with poles straight up?if so you have to bend em some with the rigging and bungees.the bases need to fit tight also.the bases also need to be mounted and bedded and backed correctly and they ride nice.

I have an old formula f233 with 18' lee Jr outriggers the only modifications I did was took a 1' long peice of 2×8 & glued with 5200 & bolted to gunnwal then mounted rigger base through that & bolted. & iv run with my riggers up for 19 years with no problems I also pull sterling widetrackers from them along with long & short baits again with no problems perhaps your rigger bases or gunnwals. need to be made more solid*

You dont live in NC do you? I passed a guy pulling a 233 yesterday headed to the ramp. Was set up with dual inboard outboards. Only saw it for a few seconds but It looked like a awesome boat.

But to Op I've got taco gunwale mounted brackets but I never have them fully extended when running. But if you must you can probably just throw a line near the end of them and tie it to the stern somewhere. Just putting a little tension on them would help.

no I'm on the eastern shore va near wachapreague. & yes my little 1965 f233 never ceases to impress me when it gets snotty put the tabs down & it just plows through it. no slamming or banging not the fastest boat around has a single 300 suzuki but the fish like it
