270 Coastal Rod Holders and Fish box Doors

Postby ccjweis » Wed Aug 04, 2021 9:28 am

Proud new owner of a 2001 Coastal 270 WA. I have 2 questions and I apologize if they are repeats. I did my best to try and find the answers before posting.

1. Where can I find rod holders and other accessories that I can mount to the track system that is already installed on the top of the gunwales ?

2. Does anyone know where I can purchase new fish box doors as mine are very soft?

I appreciate any info.

Well that's just a step on top now on that piece just on the inside there's a slot that your bolsters are in but the top is just a no skid step. Mine has a set of 5 rod holders across the back, 2 on each side of the hardtop frame and 2 on each side aft of the aluminum plate. I don't know for sure but I wouldn't add any in the plat for fear it might compromise it's strength

Hold on!. I have to apologize I gave you bad advise. I do have rod holders on my 270, don't know what the heck I was thinking, and they are in the aluminum plate and I do walk on it here's the pics. Again I'm sorry to ccjweis and anyone else who read these posts, no excuse but haven't had that boat out since January we used the big boat the other 3 times we were out

I had the same problem with the fish box. Add a piece of 1/2 inch marine plywood and use glass matting to install. Better than new and really adds negligible weight to door.

As for the fish box lids, check out my post and write up. Just be sure to order the correct color material not like me. :-D
