Many kayaks come equipped with the preexisting external mount bases and rod holders from Scotty, RAM, Cannon, Fish-On, and many other variations of rectangular, four-point installation bases.  We get it!  This makes it really difficult to add RAILBLAZA bases and accessories to your kayak because the preexisting bases and accessories that you got stuck with are already installed to your kayak!  Not anymore!

With the invention of the RAILBLAZA StarPort HD – a rectangular, four-point installation base similar in size to that of Scotty, RAM, Cannon, Fish-On, and many others – you can easily remove and replace your old bases with a RAILBLAZA StarPort HD!  Not only does this transition to RAILBLAZA base give you the comfort of the RAILBLAZA’s ‘slide locking mechanism’ fit to all of the bases and the versatility to effortlessly retask accessories from one base to another, but the transition also opens up your accessibility to RAILBLAZA’s large selection of accessories and limitless rigging possibilities!

The StarPort HD also is compatible with the same hardware that is currently used to keep your base mounted to your kayak! Other options for installation hardware include rivets, screws/locknuts, and the StarPort HD Track Mounting Kit. For more information on track mounting, see the below Track Mounting Notes.

Even with the new improvements to the StarPort HD, the base stays true to the RAILBLAZA core features: stylish, low profile, based on StarPort design featuring ‘slide locking mechanism’ and compatible with ALL RAILBLAZA accessories.  WARNING

  • Practical replacement for preexisting external mount bases from Scotty, RAM, Cannon, Fish-On
  • Rectangular, four-point installation base consistent with North American industry standard
  • Compatible with the same hardware that is currently used to keep your base mounted to your kayak.
  • Other hardware options include rivets, screws/locknuts, or self-tapping screws (not recommended for Rod Holders).
  • Hardware included
  • For Track Mounting options, see ‘Track Mounting Notes’ below

Lubricant Warning: Use of petroleum-based lubricants on the StarPort slide locking mechanism will cause failure. Silicone based products are best suited for RAILBLAZA lubrication.  Before applying, please check contents of lubricant or call/email YakGear Customer Service.

Track Mounting Notes: The StarPort HD can also be centrally mounted on many popular track systems.  This comes with the added versatility of tool-free adjustment. Because of the variations of kayak tracks and the different user opinions of tracks, track mounting hardware is sold separately.  To learn more about the RAILBLAZA StarPort HD Track Mounting Kit  and the installation details, see the separate product listing.

Jackson Cuda Note:  In replacing the back Ram Mount with a StarPort HD for a Railblaza Rod Holder II, you will need a RAILBLAZA Adjustable Extender to elevate the Rod Holder II above the elevated seat clearance.

  1. Love this mount. I use it for a railblaza boom and gopro. Very flat profile which I like quite a bit. The fact the bolt pattern is the same as other rod mounts is also nice if I ever want to change something out. Fast shipping and the best price from yak gear was an added bonus.

  2. This mount is exactly what they claim! It was a perfect fit as a replacement for my old Scotty Rod Holder. The low profile and versatile of the entire line from Railblaza is just what yak-ers need. The mount was delivered very quickly and in perfect condition. I wouldn’t even consider another brand for my kayak.

  3. This product was exactly as advertised. I removed my unstable proprietary mount and put this over the old foot print. All the holes paired up and it attached in seconds. I was skeptical regarding stability with the surface mount, but when I inserted the rod holder that I also purchased it was rock solid.

  4. Used three of these in predrilled holes on my OK Trident. Fit perfect and excellent for rod holders. Very stable base.

  5. Hands down the best mount on the market. I absolutely love my Starport HD that I use for my Boom 600 camera mount. Quick and easy install and works flawlessly. Ill be swapping out my Scotty mounts with these. Thanks Railblaza for the awesome product and YakGear for being helpful and awesome as well!

    Bought the additional base for use with Rod holder to allow the use for a multi positional opportunity while fishing. Easily attaches, no problems with install.

    These mounts are ingenious, easy to use, and flexible depending if you want a track mount or something more permanent. I love this product line!

    I really want to love this rod holder but I bought three of them for my kayak and 4 of the screws easily cross threaded and locked up about half way in and were unable to be taken out or moved with a screwdriver and wrench. I ended up having to basically fill the hole with silicone adhesive underneath the head of the screw to avoid having to cut them with a bolt cutter. I’m sure they are great but between me and another guy out of 3 holders all but one have screws that cross threaded the nut.

    The RAILBLAZA StarPort HD Base is constructed of very durable materials. It’s adaptable to a number of applications. I installed mine on the frame of my Underwater Scooter for mounting my U/W still and video cameras.
