Setup your Bowducer system for Ice fishing. See featured products.
This is the basic mounting method for any level spot. Typically used on the trolling motor deck or on the flat areas on boats with wide gunnel tops. 2 on a boat would allow the baseplate assembly to be moved to the most advantagous position. 4x4x3/8 inches
Tracker Boats utilize an angle bracket with stainless steel carriage boats. Special note for Targa Boat owners. The width of the gunnel requires a 15 inch baseplate in front of the console or an 18 inch baseplate behind the console. All other Tracker boats with rails up to 5" wide can use an 8.25 inch baseplate
We are able to utilize clamps made by TightLok for aluminum boats. There are 3 sizes including one for tube rails
This bracket works very well and looks very good on the new Ranger series boats with a 1 inch handrail tube.
Lund Boats with the Sporttrack system are best outfitted with the brackets shown above. Used with 8.25 inch baseplates, these brackets and baseplates fit very well! If you measure more than 4 inches from the center of the track to the outer rub rail of the boat, please tell us that dimension when ordering (write it in the transducer section as you can add any text there).
Many Lowe, G3, War Eagle boats utilize either a 90 degree or 45 degree mounting track. Once you determine the mounting track you have, consider that it extends over the top of the gunnel. As such, most of these boats use the 8.25 inch long baseplate. If you measure more than 4 inches from the center of the track to the outer rub rail of the boat, please tell us that dimension when ordering (write it in the transducer section as you can add any text there).
Pedestal systems are available for any baseplate type. Mounting onto the deck is a great choice for a lot of boat owners. Pedestal systems are a 2 part assembly requiring both a Bowducer assembly as well as the pedestal itself. When building the Bowducer, choose sub plate mounting as it will become the top plate of a pedestal when one is added to the order.
Excel and some War eagle boats utilize a 55 degree mounting rail. These systems use a 1/4 inch T bolt system.
Crestliner boats with the Suretrack rail can either use the standard vertical bracket with an attached angle or the Crestliner Downrigger bracket that spans over the top of the gunnel. Overall the Downrigger bracket allows for a stronger mounting to the Suretrack rail
Alumatrac rail owners can utilize the Cisco mounting bracket. If the boat does not have the alumatrac rail, the boats generally have space on the gunnel or the trolling motor deck for a sub plate. If handrails are available, tube mount brackets are also a good choice.
The Sea Ark bracket uses wing nuts and T bolts for attachement to the rail. This makes it quick and easy to adjust the position of the baseplate on the boat!
If a track system is on your boat, you need only have a track mounting plate sufficiently large to allow a sub plate to mount. The A-600-6 is a great choice.
