    Look in the library for pvc rod holders for a boat. Weld a piece of angle iron to a large C-clamp, then mount the rod holder to the angle iron. Mounts anywhere without drilling holes.

    I fabricated some bases out of alum. angle and stainless rod that will clamp on the sides of my boat. I mounted Bee Ready rod holders on top of the bases. Easy to move around and very stable.
