Types of aftermarket boat accessories include rod holders, boat covers and fish finders. There are numerous types of aftermarket vendors and manufacturers that offer different products, sales and prices.
Rod holders are popular aftermarket boat accessories with people who enjoy fishing, and there is a large variety to choose from including vertical single-rod holders, which keep one rod upright and easy to access. Rod racks hold multiple rods at one time, allowing users to access multiple rods set up with four different line weights for handling varying fish types. Boat owners can also buy rod-holding straps, which are adjustable for any size rod.
Boat owners can buy boat covers in various styles. Universal boat covers are made to work on any type of boat. If purchasing a universal boat cover, a cover support may be necessary. Cover supports come in multiple styles so that all boat types can have a cover properly installed. Boats may not have attachment points for covers; however, if a boat needs attachment points, owners can buy suction cup tie downs.
Fish finders can be mounted to boats permanently, but versions that temporarily clamp on are also available. The accessories come in a wide range of styles, colors and with multiple features. Some models come with chart plotters that give boaters an idea of the land under the surface, and others have color touch screens.
