Find an area that is strong enough to support the rod holder. Push on the area. It shouldn't move. The back side of this area should be easy to reach for you.

Find the right location

Using the base mount, lay out the holes. Drill one hole and hand tighten in one bolt. After that bolt is set, drill your other holes.  Drill the holes using a drill bit just a size smaller than the bolt. (Example: If a 3/16" hole lets the bolt go in the hole easily, use a 11/64" bit so you will need to screw the bolt in the hole.) Screw in bolts and hand tighten.  Put the washer and the nut on and tighten down. We recommend using bolts, washers and lock nuts when you can reach the underside of the area you are mounting the rod holder to. If you can not reach the underside, then rivets should be used.
