Magnetic Baseplate Assemblies utilize dual 130lb magnetic Switches to hold the baseplate to a Ni plated steel mounting plate secured to the boat.
These baseplates ship with the magnetic mounting plate.
The Mounting plate can be secured to any angle brackets for accessory rails (45 degree, 55 degree, and 90 degree) made by Cisco Fishing Systems, Excel boats, Brocraft, etc as well as mounted to existing Fishing specialties pedestal tops.
Many Boats have many areas where flat surface mounting of the magnetic sub plate can be used. Any level area that has space of 4×4 inch and is flat can use a simple sub plate mounting. This area could be the Gunnel top, top of a trolling motor deck or even a built up riser made of wood or some other waterproof material.
The magnetic switches will lift off the sub plate if the downrod were to hit some underwater obstacle.
Baseplate selection should take into consideration the span, or distance, from the outer edge of the sub plate to the outside rub rail of the boat. Refer to the drawing below, Dimension D.
