The Manta Racks Floating Mat Holder for Boats

The Floating Mat Rack System transports floating pads for boats; 1 floating mat/boat float pad on your boat, up to 18′ long. This system includes two racks and must be set into quality, through-bolted, reinforced fishing rod holders. The optimal distance between the two-rod holders should be 24″ to 38″.

If a rod holder is installed at an angle our system rotates and locks every 22 1/2 degrees so that the rack system is parallel with your boats gunwale.

Please measure the angle of your rod holder to make sure you order the correct rack system. A 15° rod holder will not work with a 30° Manta Rack product.

Download the Angle Meter App for Apple

Once you have downloaded the Angle Meter App to your smartphone, insert a fishing pole (or other straight object, i.e. mop handle) into the rod holders you plan to use for the racks. With the Angle Meter App opened, place your phone against the pole in the first-rod holder and follow the App’s instructions. The angle will be either a 0, 15, or 30-degree angle. The App’s results may display the difference between the angle and 90 degrees. For instance, 60 degrees would be a 30-degree rod holder. Repeat this process on the second-rod holder you plan to use. Measure both rod holders you plan to use, because they may NOT be the same angles. Looking for good lily pad/floating water pad/huge water mats storage ideas?
