There’s more than one way to add accessories such as rod holders, cup holders, and tackle trays to your fishing boat. One of the most versatile is based on the V-Lock system, which uses a universal mounting bracket. Available in both aluminum and King Starboard (about $38 for either), the bracket lets you instantly add or detach accessories equipped with the V‑Lock tapered insert, also available in aluminum or Starboard. A spring-loaded pull pin on the bracket locks the insert in place. Boatoutfitters.com offers a wide assortment of V-Lock accessories, including rod racks, serving trays, cutting boards and drink holders, as well as the bracket itself.
