Scotty rod holder install

Here is how I installed my Scotty rod holders with extensions and flush mount base.

I took Steve’s idea and decided to use some cutting board as backing to give it extra strength. So to start with I marked out the size I would need on the board.

I then used a holesaw to drill out the the middle for the base to fit through. After drilling out the middle hole I could then fit the flush mount over the top of it to mark out my four bolt holes.

After drilling out the four bolt holes I then placed them where I wanted to on the yak and marked the centre of the big hole, then out came the holesaw again.

After drilling the main hole I then placed the flushmount on the deck and once again marked the four bolt holes that I had to drill.

Next I placed some Selleys All Clear around the bolt holes and around the base of the flush mount.

Fit the base to the yak and place the cutting board backing on the inside and tighten all the nuts and bolts. I used nylon lock nuts to secure it so there is no chance of them vibrating loose while towing it on the trailer. Vice grips were an invaluable tool when tightening them due to space constraints and reach limitations.

And here is the final result. Very happy with them and they handled a couple of mega bass at Wivenhoe the other day.
