Just a new little addition I just did. I have a habit of putting my rod down to do something and leaving the line still in the water. So instead of one day a fish pulling it in the water I decided to put a flush mount rod holder. I used a hole saw and after the pilot bit started I slowly angle the hole saw to match the angle of the mount. Slipped it in and screwed it down. 5 min install and just what I needed!!

I like the rod holder idea. What holder did you use?

I wanted to say it looks great Jay. I do need to say I will be in the future installing those front red and green bow lights. It will get mine off my bow.

Quick question...I see that you used 5200 and 4200 for different applications on your build but after reading about 4200, it seems like a better option for metal. Why even use the 5200? (it says its for wood and fiberglass)
If I just get 4200, can't I just use that?

I've never used 4200 but have used 5200. From my understanding 5200 is considered permanent and 4200 is not. I used 5200 to seal my solid rivets and bolts when I redid my transom. Made everything water tight, and it's not going anywhere!!
