Default Cup/Can Holders

I know, very mundane subject, but it's a slow day.

My 2004 2400 SC3 has a total of 5 plastic holders; 3 in the port gunnel cut out beside the front passenger seat, 2 on starboard in the same location. Fantastic for the Admiral and Captain, not so much for passengers.

The boat has the "entertainment center" - fancy words for fawcet/sink/cooler. The pictures of the 2009 model 2400 SC3 on the Maxum site show the EC with a stainless steel cup holder installed next to the sink. My '04 doesn't have one there at all. Must-Change-This. I would think that the SS holder in the EC is the same diameter as the plastic ones in the gunnels but I don't know for sure. I believe the hole size is 3 3/4". Does anyone know?

Next Q, anyone using extra holders? Clamp on's, suction cup, etc? I like this stuff http://www.tallonsystems.com/ because the holder is very secure and easily removable but the system is a little pricy.

Thanks,

Dan

I think these are pretty cool and there is no permanent mounting so you can move them if you don't like where you put it the first time.

Well done Shrew. The models with using the 4 1/2" cups seem like over kill but the.....and I can hardly say this with a straight face....PartySucker holder might do the trick.

I am a custom manufacturing kind of guy but I love the Tallon system for the temporary rod holders when you need them.
As far as the cup holders go I would find a good spot to mount them then go and get some 1/4" 316 stainless round stock and roll and bend and weld to what I want and install.You will get a great sense of pride every time you look at them and someone askes where you got them.
Cheers
Paul

Just bought 3 of the $12 can holders. I like that they have the cam type suction cup like my GPS mount. I have not seen these before on a cup holder. Seemed like a good price. Everyone always complains that my boat has no cup holders. Thanks for the link.

I love custom stuff too Paul, but that's just a little too much time/work, not to mention I don't have a welder, for a drop in cup holder. No need to re-invent the wheel here, an off the shelf product will be just fine.

I like that Tallon line but too hard to justify that pricing.

Thanks SP, but I do want the one in the entertainment center to be stainless in order to match the sink. Come to think of it, I wouldn't mind replacing the existing 5 plastic drop in's with SS.

Doh! I was down at the boat this past weekend installing a new support rod for the full cover and completely forgot to remove one of the plastic one's to measure it!
