How many T-Bolt Brackets do I need per track?
Multiple brackets are needed to properly support the track length you choose and to get the most strength from your boat’s gunwale. Use the chart below to determine how many brackets you need. If you are going to use this mounting method for vertical trees or downriggers, our minimum suggested track length is 24” with four brackets for proper strength from the boat’s wall. The longer the track and the more brackets you use, the stronger your setup will be.

|12” (MT-12 or BMT-12)||3 T-Bolt Brackets/2 Packages|
|18” (MT-18 or BMT-18)||3 T-Bolt Brackets/2 Packages|
