Default Need solutions/Ideas on rigging my boat.Anything,please..

Hi to all of the good folks at walleye central,
I apologize for my long lengthy "discourse" in advance.
A "PLEASE" to anyone,any advice would be appreciated as im tied up in knots & itching to get my boat rigged.
I have a 2001 triton 189 DCF & have been thinking long & hard on how to rig.I keep forseeing problems with a majority of my ideas.
I want anything I do to be a nice addition & not work against anythingelse whitch has been hard every way I look it seems.
I really don't know where to begin...& know I cant mention it all but heres some of the basics...
#1 I was thinking on going with preferably 2 tracks on each gunnel.I wanted to have a 42" midship & 18" in the back leaving me 6" or so in between.Or I thought it may be better to just use 2 18" tracks & not mess with the bimini brackets but I hate to be bound to setting my boat up around them.
Im afraid it I do that (42"track)it may cause problems with the bimini as far as
getting it to fit as it does now.I know theres a little flexabilty there.
I really don't like where the poles/brackets mount in.It could make the midship section of the track useless for rod holders or a rod tree when erected possible I would think.
I wish there was a way the poles could mount to where they wouldn't interfere with whatever I would have on the track system.
Right in between the bimini mounts I thought would be a great place for a rod tree but im sure that would interfere when erected.
I wanted to set up for trolling for walleye.
The only place where it would work would with the shorter tracks on the back & it would go over some of it to! This is frustrating trying to think this through & just keep comeing into dead ends.Maybe a troll bar the slides into the rear tracks would help but wasn't sure if I wanted to resort to that..
I wont be able to use the tracks in between the bimini brackets with all of the canvas up.I may be able to get a rod holder in between.
Do I need to find someone that makes bimini tops in person before I do anything? Rebend the frame to fit the inside of the gunnel? Put a sporttrack or some kind of track to mount it in on the inside of the gunnel? IDK..Maybe they could at worst make up a different frame configuration that would work with everything & still be able to use my original canvas? Be a shame to have to do that.

Is there anyone here that knows anything about biminis? What I could do for tracks.Someone on here has gotta be more of an expert at this than me!
I have lots of pics in my albums here on walleye central of my boat to give anyone ideas who cares to take a look.
Ill try to add a video I put on facebook to send to a track manufacture.
The video isn't all about what im talking about as ive came up with some ideas that could work since then for some of what ive metioned.


I could go on & on but I think ive already rambled to much in my overthinking/stressing im probably doing.I just DONT want any regrets once I commit to doing anything.
Thanks for your time!

Sincerely Thanks!

Or just lay one long track down each side and buy some of these bimini brackets that mount to the track. Lots of flexibility.
