View Full Version : installing spider rig

06-21-2014, 08:23 PM
I have a new 18c triton boat and I want to put a spider rig on it. Since it is all metal and you can not get to the under side, how do you install it. My guess is to pre drill and attach with ss sheetmetal screws. Is this the correct
way? Thanks

Yes, that will work. There are also alternatives to making holes in your boat. The driftmaster crow foot will work well. If you have cleats or an accessory rail, with some engineering those can be used for mounting the holders. If you don't mind making holes in your boat, drilling and installing with sheet metal screw will be fine.

I know it means making holes but you can also use the threaded bases that are made to be installed with a pop rivet gun. Put some silicone or an expoxy aroound the rivet and pop it in with the gun. Just my :twocents
