Hi everyone, I have a 1990 Doral Eclipse and have purchased a set of Big Jon Downriggers. I am trying to figure out the best way to mount them onto the gunnel. The top of the gunnel has a step plate that would be the best location I believe. this step plate section runs about 10" and the screws to hold the step plate on were in about 1/2" and did not penetrate through the top layer of fibreglass. Please see attached photos. As of now, I am going to ad a backing plate and screw them down into the top of the gunnel to support the mount. please see attached photos..
Any help is greatly appreciated
