-Scotty Rod Holder and base
-Drill with step drill bit
-Pencil and straight edge or carpenter square
-Pry tool or flat head screw driver
Trace out the base of the rod holder with a pencil wherever you want it mounted. Cut out the EVA deck pad with sharp razor. Peel out the cut piece. Measure the hole to be drilled into the board. Drill into the board only deep enough so the base fits flush on the board. Put generous amount of epoxy in the hole and shaft area of the base, and also add a generous amount of silicone to the upper shaft area and bottom side of the rod holder base so when placed into board it creates a nice water tight seal. Let dry and get out and do some SUP fishing! Big thanks for @ Will Vacha for putting this fun project together. Tight lines.
