Hi Guys,
Thought maybe you guys might have some suggestions as to how I would be able to rig my boat for trolling. I've tried the Salty's Clamp On, and don't find them to be very solid. Dan had suggested using railings and then get a rail mounted holder. I haven't been able to locate anything like that so far. I've tried Cabellas, but to no avail. If you have any other suggestions or would know where I could find something like this( Railings w/ rod holder attached), I'd appreciate any input. Thanks again

FYI- I have a Bass Tracker Pro16. The Rod holders don't attach very solidly to the gunnel. Don't want to end up losing my gear in the drink!

Any and all suggestions appreciated!

Did you think about using the permently mounted Salty rods holders? They just bolt on instead of clamping. I've never had any problems with the clamp mounts though.

George,

I don't know what you are referring to as Salty's but these Down East rod holders are great and should work on your boat: http://www.down-east.com/

Salty's are the Down Easterns.

Hey,

Yes, I knew they had two different types. One was galvanized, which I guess it the Salty, and one that is not. Thanks for the clarification Jeremy.

are the gunnels wide enough to be able to bolt directly in? are they a standard size?

Bolt them on! Ask Dieter if he likes his, he's got like thirty of them on the back of his jet boat!. They are the best on the market right now. And yes, they will fit on any boat and almost anywhere. Their bullet proof.

Bolt on is the way to go George if they'll work on your boat!

I've been using the S-10 Downeast Salty double clamp-ons on a similar boat, and they've been solid. I'm not sure I'd trust the D-10 single clamp models.
Bolt-on is a better option if you don't mind drilling holes in your boat and know right where you want to put them. It is nice to be able to move them a little bit when needed. They will scratch your finish, but I stopped caring about that after a while.

The track systems are nice but pricey and I think that you need a pretty wide gunwale.

I can't get myself to trust plastic rod holders.
