The Scotty Round Rail Mount Adapter 245 is excellent for pontoon boats and round rails found on some kayaks and canoes. The Scotty Round Rail Mount Adapter 245 allows you to position your Scotty rod holder anywhere on your rail, and provides versatile mounting without having to drill more holes in your boat. Stainless steel fasteners (included) hold this tough mount securely in place. Works with all Scotty post mount rod holders.
I purchased these to go on the Round Rail that my AMAs are connected to on my HOBIE ADVENTURE, and they worked great. I don't have to put unwanted holes in my kayak, and if I want to move them to the front I can, and they don't leave holes in my kayak, so I can use them in front or on the rear of the Adventure and mount them to the AMAs tube. Thank you Scotty!
I had difficulty with the hardware on this. I purchased 2 units. One was fine. The other was practically un- installable. The self-locking nuts actually stripped the screw threads before fully tightening - a real mess that required re-tapping threads the night before a fishing trip. Also, the allen screws were nearly impossible to turn. Once installed, it worked fine, but Scotty needs better QC on their hardware supply.
did not fit my hobie pro angler 2014. not about to put duct tape to make it fit. therefore i will give it a so so score. cant rate it down to the bottom as i can not verify its usefulness but i did not like the pin screws they used to keep it from moving, that would scratch any rail and i dont like that
Not the best by any means. Hardware strips with tight fit, makes "dents" in your railings when snug. Better alternatives by competition. I have a lot of Scotty gear and enjoy, but this was a miss by them.
