Hi everyone! I purchased these rod holders to mount on both sides of my 2015 180 Sportsman. They came with nuts and bolts to mount on the sides. When I went to mount them on, there is a ton of flotation foam completely filling underneath the siding where I need to screw the nut onto the bolt. I tried removing the foam but four hours later I haven't even installed one nut/bolt yet. It seems very difficult to remove the foam. How does everyone remove the foam to install these rod holders on both sides? Or, am I fine just using a drill bit to tap initial holes and just using stainless screws rather than nuts/bolts from underneath? I'd rather not have to weld them on due to having to touch up paint around the welds. Thanks for your thoughts!
