That is exactly what I was looking for. I have a member on my site that has just added a 26" setback porta bracket so I was trying to figure out how far she had to move her console forward and the weight needed to counteract the setback. I'll copy and paste in what you said or you can come over and explain.

Check your junk mail - hard to check on a phone but it probably landed there.

Looks nice - is it a bait station? A seat? Sorry - not real "up" on big boat stuff ;-)

It gets 4 rod holders in there rick. Also serves as a small rigging area. You can fish a kite and two rods there for live bait or troll one down the middle or just stow the rods for running.

Or you can have your beer and snacks on there!
