Might post up a pic if we do it but looking at doing a “temporary” organic set of ‘riggers on our new boat that doesn’t have any..... my son mentioned it but might just do a center rigger first and see how it works

15 foot is ok for center rigger...angle on a CC is a bit interesting..I have the Rupp fixed and the angle is not high enough for me...however, I would not be able to get in in the base if it was angled more....my base is almost in the middle of the T-Top so make sure you figure out if you arms a long enough...

I have to take mine in and out on each trip.

Regards,

Center rigger needs to be tall enough that the long center line will always pass over the other long riggers when the boat turns.
i prefer a very stiff center pole, so that it doesn’t whip side to side when the boat rocks or the wind blows, and the clips open immediately on strike.
center rigger is a prime place to use a tagline setup to minimize drop back.i
i always double rig the center rigger, the lower position is great for big floppy Marlin lures run really short, or daisy chains.
the long rigger is my Hail Mary, way way back with a 5” cherry jet.
