I am pleased to find this product at a good price. I haven't installed it yet as winter came and I had to stow the boat. I plan to modify this as a secondary VHF antenna base for travel, yet stow the antenna while fishing. It seems well built, sturdy. I assume if it can hold a hard pulling fish rod it could take my little steel whip antenna and I'll have a nearly flush deck mount.
