Is there any reason that the rod holders on the reversible seat back dont drain?would it be so the water doesnt stain the vinyl?i would like to drill holes at the bottom of the holders so they wont hold water.

The rod holders in the Reversible Pilot Seat (RPS) seat back do have drain holes. They were drilled through the 2" round wood mounting block or base that forms the bottom of the rod holder and thence through the bottom of the seat back. Two things can happen to impair the flow of water out of the rod holders:

1) The drain holes, which are 1/4" become clogged with debris and don't let water pass.

2) In the course of maintenance, the rod holders are removed/disassembled and reinstalled in a position different than they originally were. One rod holder base may be switched form one side to the other or the base may be rotated 180 degrees from it's original position. This can cause the holes in the rod holder base and the seat back bottom to not line up.

The rubber inserts in my RPS rod holders have seen better days. Any suggestions on where can I find replacements?
Thanks,
Jay

Tom:

Do you know a source for the RPS rod holders? I did not see it in the OEM section.
