I am finally getting around to putting some rod holders on my 31 Duffy. From my previous thread most people suggested three per side. I have two more questions though.

I will primarily be trolling and wanted to know when you would use a 30 degree rod holder vs a 15 degree rod holder? When woudl you choose one over the other.

My second question is if you are going to put three on each side how many degrees do you rotate them from each other. Assuming the aft one is straight back how much would you offset the second and third one going forward?

Thanks for your help,

Eric

15 degree stand the rod almost straight up and down...better for pulling into slips and dock spaces...30 degree lay your rods out more
