Yep was going to cost me $17 postage from whitworths to get these two plugs for the top of my Hobie cart. They’re about $1 or so each and weigh bugger all. Ebay it is

Ok so i liked the sliding rod holders, however they were somewhat anoying lol. So I've put the mounting plate back and will think about berkely qs holders for the 2 outer holders and repositioned the 2 railblaza holders.

Pfft! Haven't had a chance to get out at all since last week, so my test drive looks to be Monday, im not confident that a baitboard or fishfinder would be suited to the cross member, so im thinking the side rails could be the go for them.
