This Dovetail Mounting Base comes pre-assembled with a Down East S-17 Salty Bolt-On Rod Holder. Salty Rod Holders help keep the rod handle waist high when laid out flat to the side trolling divers, fish disks or flatlining. They also keep the butt of the rod closer (out of the way) to your gunwale if pointing the rod tips toward the sky while using with planer boards. We also offer a dovetail mounting base that comes without the S-17 Salty Bolt-On Rod Holder.
