Alumacraft Trophy 205 Rigging?
Here are a few pics, and a link to a video that I put together last year showing a six line spread with the down rigger rods in the plastic Scotty rod holders. The rod in the actual down rigger rod holders is a 300' copper that we can move from side to side as needed while fighting fish. If you have any questions, feel free to give me a call. You will love your new Alumacraft!

Second option: can you mount your riggers high enough on a pedestal that your storage is still operational? If you went with big Jon you could run the divers out of a second holder ON the rigger mount. Then you could do your trees in front of the storage. Just an idea. You could run your riggers (assuming you run two) at 45* angles and still have room or a diver. I didn't need to design this way but I did to save space. See attached image (note on the image: that day I was running double divers. Imagine it with only the diver rod that's affixed to the rigger)
Not sure if option two would work. Not sure how long that storage hatch is. I love big Jon because they are like Legos. Just keep stacking holders and add longer bolts.
