    New to microskiff.com and just got my first boat which is an '03 Riverhawk B60. It came with a poling platform but no hardware to mount it.

    I was looking around the web and found this picture of a B60 with poling platform mounting cups installed from the factory.

    Where do I find the hardware circled in red? I'd like to have cups or something similar so that I can remove the platform when not in use without anything stricking out of the deck.

    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

    Dunno, but those look like rod holders to me.

    either call the factory or almost any custom aluminum shop should be able to fix you up

    I don't think those are mountings for a platform. Those look like stainless steel rod holders, and you can see they are angled for trolling. Did your platform come with mounting bases welded on? post up a picture of your boat and platform for better help.

    Don't know, but the thought of a sturdy removable poling platform is interesting. Let us know if you find out.
