Then the holes were drilled with a large hole saw and filed out to a oval shape

Hi Sam,
Looks great, Hopefully I'll be copying exactly what you've done later today, just got to cut the length of the holders down to the right size as the hull isn't deep enough :evil: then seal them up. I've also got some straight rod holders that will go in between these two for either a net or a gaff.
Cheers....Nick

Notice you have plastic holders.

Gunston had to shorten his holders also, and cut a band out of the middle of the holder, and then re welded the bottom back onto the top section using a solder iron.

It was his first welding and achieved a brilliant result; the drain hole still had to be filled of course, but thats a much smaller problem than a sawn off holder hole
