Hi Italo I have a 186 Princecraft SE and would like to install two rails for Scotty rod holders. I noticed that you have these on your boat so I am seeking advice from you regarding their installation. Is it necessary to have backing plates to screw the rails to the gunwales or will the screws that are supplied with kit be suffice to secure the rails properly

Hi B…No need to have backing plates since the gunwales should be re-enforced with “over-laying” aluminum where the gunwales meet the side of the hull You are fine just going ahead and installing them. By the way, they work great!….God bless you, Italo
