Okay, here is a few pics of the rod holder setups I am considering...... I am going to use Scotty rod holders.... Should I use side or flush mount? Flush mount - Only problem, I'll be drilling one large hole in the top of the gunnel wall. That makes me nervous, and also will leave a large hole in the top. But, it will look slick all the way around. Side mount - Not a bad option, but I'll have four smaller holes in the side of the gunnel, and it'll be just as strong or stronger. Separate Mount - I could build a long spider mount across the back with only two mounting points. Take a long piece of square aluminum and mount at each end, which would minimize holes. Then I mount all my rod holders to the square aluminum. If this setup, I may consider using DriftMaster holders. Shucks, I forgot to make it a poll.... Anyway, just respond with your recommendation or choice?
