Default Rough Water Pedestal Rocket Launchers

Any body have one of these on their boat. I'm wondering how the quality is. The price is around $550 with free shipping.

A buddy has the exact one you pictured and I have just the fiberglass blank that I modified myself. I like them, no problems in the year plus we both have had them.

Looked around, but it's not something I need right now

These guys have one left...It's the 37" wide rather than the 41" wide.

$465 with free shipping.

Wow thats pretty nice looking. Good alternative to a bait station. Where on the boat do you plan to put it?

JAGSARE1.... Thanks for the info. You always seem to be one of the guys always providing useful info on the forum. I appreciate it. I'm going to order it tomorrow. Is that a ss base or aluminum?

I'm going to put it in the center of the cockpit. The boat already has a backing plate installed in the deck for it.

The problem is that its owned by somebody else and is already installed on their boat. The magic of Google picture search!

Thank you, I appreciate that. Whether I am right or wrong, my opinions are formed from actually using the products offshore and I do try to impart some of that knowledge and how it did or did not work for me.

I didn't buy the base but looking at my buddies, it looks to be aluminum. His has held up perfectly so far, no rust, no issues, etc.

My photos are on a different computer but I will post a pic of mine later. Mine was the fiberglass blank only that I put 5 rod holders into.

That would be a problem. For the money I don't think this one can be beat. Having a rocket launcher by release the cup holders are sweet. Great for drinks but also tons of other little stuff that likes to role when its rough.

I have a rocket launcher and step box purchased from this company. Their quality is excellent and you can''t beat their price. Great people to do business with.
