Do you happen to have a picture of where you put the rod holders with a higher view of the bow for reference? I'm trying to gauge weather I my trolling motor/mount would be in the way when deployed (we wouldn't use the shade under power)

That looks great. Are those 15 degree holders? They look like 90's at this angle, I think it's tricking my eyes!

15 degrees. Again if you guys decide to do this I would mount the rod holders forward another half foot + to get the front of the sunshade further out.

Otherwise no complaints and it works well!

you may be able to switch to 60 degree rod holder and accomplish the same thing with them aiming forward and out.

Well all good things must come to an end... While rafting with my brother's boat with very light wind (6-10 with gusts up to 18 or so) my starboard side rod holder gave out. When I started this project I debated purchasing a rod holder with a back plate, but since there is no good way to get your hand/arm up there to mount I went with 3 stainless 1 and 3/4 screws and 4200 instead. Also if you recall from a few post prior the port side is much thicker to account for the trolling motor mount so am sure that is why that sides is still fine.

Anyway, all 3 screws ripped out so here's the last photo of my sun shade setup right before :eek:(

I am not sure if I am going to try and fix or just call it a day without a sunshade because when it worked it was great.

Thoughts??? How are all of you Florida people doing this with prob much stronger winds? (unless this is a result of some previous trips out that weakening the screws...)
