Here is what a customer had to say from Amazon website
“As for the cupholders themselves, they’re somewhat thick molded plastic. The lips and interior was smooth, and it sits flush in the hole fine. The cupholders fit nearly all my beverages, at least all the ones that are ‘reasonable’. See attached photos for some examples of what I had handy. I’m not planning to use the drain hole, so I filed it down and filled with a squirt of hot glue. The two tiers are a nice compromise for a wide variety of containers.” Amazon

You can decide to go for a cheap light weight material or Amarine Made Kayak Cup holder made of modest heavy materials to withstand any bang against the boat surface. This cup holder slide to the right and its convenience aided by the drain port.
If the 16 oz bottle doesn’t fit your cup holder well, consider using 12 oz which is some cases do fit fine the lower part of the cup holder.

A customer’s review
“Sturdy and deep. Used to modify console in my cj. The drinks were always falling over in the too shallow cup holders in the console. Not sure about adhesion question. Used adhesive to secure them in the console and they stuck. Seem to be plenty sturdy so far. No spills since installation.” Last but not least, consider using a 3-3/4″ hole saw to firmly hold them in your boat or surface.
