Scotty mounts
I use Scotty rod holders for my fly rods.



Have several. I mounted them to the rear deck on my X5




The Renegade however is limite as to where you can mount them with no frame. The tube mounts are okay but again limited to where you can mount them when you add the fact it has oars.

So I found out, there are glue on mounts. I glued one on the back and one on the front area





This is also the same mount for the Scotty Anchoring system, however, due to the weight of the Anchor, the tube mount strap on is a better choice.

The I found a Scotty Camera mount. It has te thumb screw for any camera, and the slide slot for a GoPro.





Time to glue one more mount on the otherside.

Thanks for the great ideas. Just ordered some Scotty glue-on mounts and accessories. What type of glue works best on the Scadden boats?

Stabond. You can get it at Walton's Marine, but be sure and get UK 148. Plus it is a two parter. It will only keep on the shelve for one year, so glue up what you need in one shot is nice.

Using the Scotty camera mount which is for traditional screw in mount or the GoPro clip. I went to Scheels and bought a Scotty extension.
So with use of that and a small piece of PVC I came up with a mount for my Go Pro.
I have the wifi remote set-up so I am able to operate the camera from my wrist.
I bought the three rod holder tree by Scotty and set it up with two inner mounts for my rods and outer for the camera.


This is what it takes as far as picture

The tube of Loctite for Vinyl will work. Clean the area really good, lightly scuff up both surfaces. Outline it on the tube (I even use masking tape to out line the object so the glue only covers under the object).
Be sure to get corners. I usually let both surface tack up then stick. I also put weight on top. Tube is deflated.

I am glad I found this as I have some Scotty rod holders and have been trying to figure out how to use them.

Just make sure it is out of the way from legs and oars while rowing.
