I do understand your frustration with those PP holders. I had to help a friend fix one that was broken. What a PITA, thankfully my HP had the old fashioned moonlighter holders. But I have to ask, are they all working? Why not just leave them and use them, they do hold the pole very well. I always felt like the pole would break before the holder would let them go.

I think those aren't that bad. If you want the best Accon Marine has them. Ive had them on my boat since "97 and the look new and they have a lifetime warranty

I think Smack said he just screwed a piece of StarBoard on top on his skiff and mounted the new PP holder on top of the that
I made 1/2” starboard cover plates and thru bolted some of moderator Anytide’s push pole holders in the center and drilled straight through those floppy POS’s...best thing I ever did other than adding some discs of Seadek to the radius to hold the pole better.

Smack now we're getting somewhere...why didn't you pull the existing (pos) holders out and cut your black starboard to fit the existing (pos) push pole holders , that way they would be level on the gunnel and then black caulk around the edges to fill the voids ? looks gud...thanks for the info and the pics

Ease of use...to put the pole back in those holders is a funky maneuver if your trying to keep quiet on the flats

Because I wanted the pole to clear the toe rail on the bow deck. If I made the holders any lower the pole would hit the rail. I didn’t need to use any caulk or silicone. It just looks like white caulk around the base in the photo but if you zoom in it’s just a reflection off the shiny starboard.
