    I plan on getting 6 of the 0/33s and wondering what base.. now I just bought a boat and it's a triumph so its ropeline. should I go for the economy 4 over the 2 bases? I will not be able to use through bolts. Will screws suffice? What kind or if not what should I use. The extra mounting power of the 4 screws is why I want to go with the 4 base otherwise if I could use through bolts I'd have no problem with the 2.

    Four screws if you can’t use through bolts. Good bases and mounting screws for great rod holders....which your 0/33’s are.

    Kyle, we went with the HD-33s and found that we can use 'em as 0/33 when we need to. (cheaper)

    How should you recommend mounting them in the ropeline? Got a picture how you did that?

    Sorry, we have a pontoon and used square rail mounts as well as the four hole flush mounts on the rear wood deck.

    I would imagine 4 like SS machine screws will work

    Machine screws or maybe sheet metal screws, as long as they are self-starting. On our boat, we have 12 mounts scattered around, and only have 8 holders (4ea) that we move where we need 'em. Good luck!

    Khh27, the first thing I saw with your rear seat setup was how I would use the 2 rearmost seat pole holes for rigging a bar mount across the back. Most of my fishing is power drifting in a large lake with an occasional anchored set up in moving water. Would work for me. Great boat.

    Kyle, do y'all have paddles there? If not, wonder if Virginia might be talked into stocking some since they love that current.

    I believe we do although I've never seen or heard of anyone catching any but they are in the aquariums in virginia that say they are native they may just be endangered and not caught often or in VA waters other then my knowing of. I know there are sturgeon. Its awesome watching them jump in the fall.... I've almost had one jump in the boat.
