Are these easily removeable?-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------The base is screwed down. The pole is removed by one small set screw and two thump screws. The thump srews have an additional 7/16 nut lock. Removes in 2 -3 minutes per pole.

I need to be able to easily remove the base as one of them has to go where my trolling motor lays in sstored position.

That's part of the beauty of the Bee Ready's. The base is 2" deep and the riser slips down inside it very snugly but you can pull them up and out in about two seconds. No thumb screws, nuts or bolts to remove. I installed mine today. Threy are very solid when bolted through the deck.

I don't have access to under the deck.

The drift master can be removed easier but still would require about a minute to loosen the lock nut and unscrew the assembly.

I have to remove my BPS Titelok everytime I put the trolling motor up or down, all I have to do is turn a handled screw half a turn and thats it, just lift straight up out of the base and put away. You can also slide the main bar through the mount into the belly of the boat adjusting the height of the T-bar. Thats something I don't think the ultra can do since its on a track mount.

I sent an E-mail to Jeannie at CrappieStuff.com and told her what I needed to do. She implied that either the pro or the ultra can be removed fairly easily. I guess that 1" shaft on the Pro model would make it pretty sturdy and since I can't get under the deck, I could mount the base with lag type screws.

I have two of them and I would not want to remove and reinstall every time I moved, but then I get in a hurry. I Guess it could be done in two minutes. Probably less to take it down. My space on the front is limited and getting on my knees to line up the angle, tighten the allen screw, tighten the thumb screw(2), and tighten the lock nuts (7/16 wrench) isn't as easy as it used to be especially with a bunch of rods laying there. If you have a minn kota you can probably bring it up and slide it under the bar, that's what I do and it why I went with tite loc over drift master, whose pole is shorter.

No matter what brand of rod holder you have the unit will only be as strong as the base. Obviously the best way is to have access underneath the deck and use nuts with lock washers. My trolling motor is mounted via bolts with rubber grommets that slip down into 1/2" holes. They swell up when tightened and seem to do a good job on my trolling motor. You might consider that type. Lag bolts would be my last choice. If you use lag bolts I'd put some epoxy on the threads.
