Replacement Rod Holders

Reply
Figured I'm not the only one having trouble finding replacement rod holders for the console of my bay boat so thought I would share. I could not find anything that was an exact fit/replacement for my 2008 Sea Pro SV19. Not to mention cost of what was available. I was able to replace all (6) holders on my console for less than what I would have spent on just (2) commercially bought holders, plus some additional fabrication would have been needed to make any of these work since no exact replacements could be found. I made the holders using 1 1/2 inch PVC, male adapter and female threaded cap.

Looks great. But what is the purpose of the cap being put on the male threaded piece.

The threaded male adapter is glued to the pipe and keeps pipe from falling through the hole. I suppose any pvc fitting could be used to achieve the same. I used a threaded male adapter so that a cap could be hand tightened when not in use, making the holder rain proof.
