    I also have the Dolphin rod holders. They work great and look good on my boat.

    No, they are open on the bottom with just a rail across to stop the rod handle. They have rubber caps that are water tight so I didn't run drainage.

    Mine are in an nearly identical location. I think mine are 30 degree and 15 would likely be better.

    Posted photos of the rod holders I installed in the gunnel in this thread (copied here also). If you look closely you will notice that on one side I didn't use their rubber "washer" as it was just too thick and made the whole rod holder fit poorly. I will remove it from the one side soon.

    Made them work!!! It took a few different ideas but by plan F or maybe G I came up with this! Just had to use both rubber spacers and modify the thin one to fit inside the thick. I like the look. Will def be taking the rods out if the clouds get dark ⛈ added bonus no possible way to get the surf rope tangled up!!

    I used the same as @Julian but went with the 15 degree instead. I kept the rubber gasket on them to help hide the fact that the gunnel wasn't completely flat where I mounted them. I got two on the bimini frame as well for when we're not using them to keep them out of the way and use these to hold the rods when we're chilling on the back deck fishing and drinking beer. :D

    Nice install @Rainmakr. I haven't had the balls to drill thru the glass yet to put in any flush mounts! Gotta let the new wear off first.

    Thanks! I must have checked 15 times that no wires or anything would get hit. :) I was able to use them last weekend and they worked great.
