How to install:
1) The lower base tube is at a 10° angle. If mounting the holder in the stern, the base tube should be inserted through the gunnel with the butt-end of the tube toward the bow. Vice versa if mounting in the bow. 2) Place a section of wide masking tape on the surface to protect the area where the 10° elliptical hole will be drilled. This will help prevent damage from drill slippage. 3) Measure and mark the location where the base is to be mounted. 4) The elliptical hole should be cut at 10° to the gunnel or mounting surface. 5) Drill the area with a hole saw at a 10° angle. Verify there are no wires or obstructions under the area being drilled. 6) After the 10° elliptical hole is drilled, enlarge the hole with a rasp file, as necessary, to allow for a good fit. 7) Once fit is verified, align the base in the desired direction, place the base flat on the mounting surface, mark each bolt hole with a pencil, remove the rod holder, and drill the bolt holes. 8) Remove the masking tape and clean the surface. 9) Install marine-grade sealant (3M-5200 or equivalent) between the mounting surface and the base. 10) Install and tighten bolts, washers, and nuts.
