    Finally after tearing up the lower unit the first week I got my new boat back. It is a 20ft sea ark center console v-cat with a suzuki 115. I would highly recomend this boat to anyone it has more storage than I can fill up and belive me I tried. HAs a huge 60 gallon livewell that keeps those small 2lb brim alive for bait. I added a livewell light, ropelights for the deck, trolling motor, lowerance depthfinder/gps, headlights, and of course the rodholders. These rodholders are from lakeland products and I wouldn't have bought them for $100 each, but I got a good deal on ebay. To anyone looking for a new boat I would highly recomend the sea ark they are very nice.

    man I got the same model as yours but mine is a side console......I also put the evinrude 150 e-tec on mine.....Got a hydraulic jack plate and lowrance 522i fish/depth finder.......one word to describe the boat is AWESOME.....and storage....like no other boat I promise ya........all around SEA ARK is the way to go.....

    1 question..how do those rod holders mount to the top lip liek that?? are the drilled and tapped and screwed to the boat?? We made a river rack for the back of ours with 9 1/2" driftmasters across the back...sweet setup

    The rod holders are on 4 sections of 4 foot aluminum t track. The rod holders are removable. but not the track. I drilled and tapped the t track on with 4 bolts each and used locktite to ensure they stayed put. if you go to www.lakelandproducts.com you can see the rod holders, but unfortunatly the company no longer exists, but they are great rod holders.
