Just buy the proper bases for what you need.. either side mount to the hull below the gunnel or top mount to the bench

Yeah the side mounts are cheap and they just work right. So much easier than trying to piece something together.

x2 on the Scotty side mounts. When you say you have a rounded gunnel, I expect that you will need a spacer between the side mount and the hull. Reason is the radius of the gunnel will interfere with inserting the rod holder into the side mount. Not a big deal. Almost anything will work. Easiest might be to cut a piece off of a cutting board. Depending on your living situation, you might have to pretend you don't know why the cutting board seems smaller.

Scotty makes no end of mounts for their system. Rail mounts, flush mounts, clamps, offsets, etc. I have a bunch of scotty rod holders, they are awesome.

My gunnel is not the perect size for the base, and I didn't want them above it. It interferes with the boat cover. So, an aluminum angle provides enough vertical meat to attach to, and does not add much height.
Sometimes the little simple modifications are the best.

Doc Arroyo, looks like an ideal solution to me. Perfect for your application, IMO.
