    I have one (1) 30-degree sealed stainless rod holder and need another one - anyone got one hanging around they aren't using? Or maybe know where I can get a new one or maybe have one sealed off wihtout breaking the bank?

    when you say sealed, do you mean with a flip cap?

    Thanks, Sam.

    No - bottom sealed. Dad pulled one out of the shed and it would go good on the back of the boat - I don't want to risk having any water get in and soak into the foam over time. 2 would be better than 1.

    That is called a Rod Holder Base Drain Cap, I have some on my Boats. I have clear tubing on all mine. You can put them on any rod holder.

    Those are neat. Might be a way to use them - just have totally foam filled sides. Will contemplate.

    remove your rod holder, drill a hole where you want the hose to go, and just run the hose to the hole, they have hose end caps that go flush against your gel coating that you attach the end of the hose to. You do not want your rod holder to hold water.

    Here is one for my cup holder.
