Mounts Rod holder/Camera

Any real difference between the different manufacturers of mounts for a sib. Been looking at Borika, Railblaza, Scotty, Berkley and some other no brand ones on ebay.

Seems the Railblaza and Borika have the most accessories from rod holders to camera mounts, bait board etc but that comes at a price of course.

Not planning on drilling or sticking things to the new transom or tubes just yet, at least until I have spent some time with my new baby and know where everything will eventually go.

I'd thought mount systems were all a bit gadget boy but as the Elling had a full set of Borika bases as part of their tube top handhold strap arrangement I thought I'd buy a few attachments. Totally converted to seeing their benefit now.

I'm still a bit like you Fen, or should I say like you before you were converted

I know you don't fish, so apart from a camera holder what's changed your mind?

Just for one example there are 9 mounts on the Elling and when planning to tie up today different locations each situation was suited to having a cleat (the ideal thing to use) in a different place. Rather than having a SIB bristling with cleats I just moved the two we had on today to the most suited posn... as I did the d-rings for tying on Dri-bags to stop them leaping out... and of course any camera position you want.

Makes sense

Had Railblaza on all my boats and never had any problem with them, you can even get mounts to stick on tubes.

I might be a little biased

but I do wish that they were interchangable fittings to bases between manufacturers, close but no cigar.
