Hey folks,

I'm wondering if the scotty rod holder w/ the rail mount adapter will work on the PA hand rails.

Anyone try this?

I'm looking to do the same thing. I've seen posts where people have used the rail mount successfully, but what I can't seem to find is the specifications on the diameter of the side rail. Scotty sells both 7/8" and 1" diameter rail mounts. Does anyone know which is the right one for the Pro Angler?

I use a rail mount for my fish finder...I tried using a Scotty first, but it didn't work (too small)...Then I found one in Hobie's online catalogue, that I bought and it works perfect...I measured the side rails with a caliper and the diameter is closest to 1-1/4"

I tried Scotty rail mount from ACK and they were too small for my rails.

Good to hear there is a place we can get some that are sized right!!!

I use the Scotty rail mounts and I add a thin rubber shim, works great!

not sure but I think it was the #245 on this page:

http://www.scotty.com/fishing-gear-equipment/rod-holders/rail-mounts.htm

I also added the risers to get the rod up to where it is easier to deal with.
my PA is in storage right now so I can't measure the diameter of the rails.
here is what they look like:

Atavuss,

Perfect! Thanks for the link and pictures. (worth a thousand words)

I measured rails at about 1 5/16'' - just over 1 1/4''

You need to get that PA out of storage and get it wet.
nice lookin' rig by the way.....

happy trails....
