okay,after trying to figure out a good solid way to mount my rod holder bases(cabelas 360 h/t's) i am at a complete standstill. the gunnels on my boat are plenty wide enough for the bases and i'd like to bolt them on and it just doesn't look like i've got enough access on the underside to put the mounting plates and nuts on the bolts.i also have an issue of wiring and steering control cables being in the way on the drivers side too.on the passenger side i would have to cut away a small amount of the flotation foam to install the mounting plates.that's no real big deal but the drivers side is the one giving me fits. i thought about using self tapping screws and shooting them through the aluminum gunnels but i didn't think that would be a solid enough way of mounting them.just hate to have them end up loosening up on down the road then having to drill more holes and re-mount them. any ideas would sure be appreciated. thanks. jeff btw,i wish the rod holders were as easy to mount as the gps mount was.had that done in about 15 minutes.
