Big thanks to Louis who read my post about needing a way to use my 3/8" Driftmasters in the existing 1/2" mounting holes on my boat. The existing holes are for my multi rod holders but often I just need single holders for different style of fishing.
He drilled and tapped a 1/2" bolt to 3/8" inside. They work perfect as pictured here. Just another example of the goodness of the CDC family. I don't know Louis he just volunteered to make these for me and I can't thank him enough.

By the way several members suggested reducer bushing but every one I found was pipe thread not SAE threads. A plumbing company even ordered some he thought would work but the threads were different.
