My boat has a weird design under the gunnel for rod storage. I have really wide gunnels but can only get 2 rods in per side. Attached a pic. Does anyone have any ideas for some additional storage? I have no idea how structural those bulkhead are and what the consequences would be if I cut into them

I would take a saw to them and cut a square opening with a width of about 1/3 of the diameter of the circle at the top of the circle. You will need to sand and fill or cover with fiberglass then paint over. You may be able to get two rods in each opening.

Sounds like you are pretty close to Skimmer Skiff (IPB), if that is an IPB skiff then take it by there and see if they can fix it. I would also ask them why would someone make rod holders like that and ask what they can do about it.
