I have a Boston Whaler Montauk boat which is equipped with 7/8" stainless railing around most of the boat.  I am wondering if anyone knows of any company that produces a rail mounted type rocket launcher rod holder?  I am tired of fighting to get my dipsy/slide diver rods out of my current non moving rail mounted rod holders when a fish is on the other end of the line.  Thanking all in advance for info.

Use normal scotty rod holders on the rail.  when the fish hits, you can pull the base towards you.  it will rotate on the rail.   do it all the time with down rods for muskie fishing.

There are lots of companies that make those, he is looking for a ratcheting holder to make it easier to get the rod out I believe.

I do not believe anybody makes a ratcheting rail mount. You might call Jeff at Trax Tech about making something custom but I'm sure he'll just tell you to rail mount a section of track and put the holder in there.

There was a company called Setzer that made rod holders like you are looking for. I have 4 of them that I no longer use that I’d sell if you are interested.

I have all fixed mount rod holders on my boat as for getting dipsy rods out with a fish on loosen your drag before you take your rod out of the holder comes out much easier been fishing lake for 49 years and have had  3 whalers along with other boats also set your drags just so line doesn't go out when your trolling.

I would mount a track on the rail and then use ratcheting rod holders to make it easier to get the rods out of the holders. You tip them up and out rather than having to pull the entire rod butt out away from the boat.
