IIRC, the rod holders were sourced from Smith. My port side rod holder popped out and it had some kind of plastic nuts holding it in place. I need to re-bed it and I want it to be solid enough for wahoo. I have not figured out how I am going to do this.... I thought about taking some epoxy and gluing some nuts to the bottom, or, getting some rivnuts. But anyhow, will these backing plates work for us?
The plates you chose say they are for series 80 rod holders. If that's what you have they'll work, however they also offer a series 70 and I don't know the difference myself. The Lee and Tigress plates offer larger slots and I expect they'd cover a larger variety of rod holders.
The last rod holders I put in were in a place I couldn't use a plate and I used large D washers. They held up fine, but I'd rather have had a plate.
I need to fix the one on the port aft corner. There is no way to get underneath it and I would rather not cut a new hole. So I was thinking of getting a plate and welding or epoxy some nuts on it and sticking it underneath with some butyl tape, then screwing it down from above.
