Stainless Steel Rod Holder 15 Degree w/ Removable Drain
I ordered the coastal holder to use until the Gemlux deluxe becomes available. Same head on both easy swap. The quality of the coastal outstanding for price.
I replaced an older Gemlux rod holder because it broke at the tack welds. The new rod holder appear to have larger welds. Hopefully it will last longer.
Perfect rod holder for the central coast halibut.
Scary part is drilling holes in the boat. I used a 2x4 cut on a 15degree angle as a guide. I tried a hole drilled at 15degrees but the hole saw bit kept catching. Good news is that you don't have to exact as there is some wiggle room.
The only thing that would make it better is to include some 316 Stainless screws. I got some stainless steel screws from my local hardware store and they rusted after the first trip, so off to a Marine store to get real 316 Stainless screws and replace them.
