But, if your mount works in the conditions that you run - great. If not - consider a switch to a different brand and type mount that may do a better job for you.
Some years ago - I removed all of the Ram mounts from my boat and moved to a non ball type mount that never moves - even in the worst of weather and waves.
REW, yeah I knew about those issues and chose the new mount based on the holes that the dealer drilled to mount the original unit, if it wasn’t for that I probably would have used a brocraft mount, cheap, simple and durable.
