Downrigger mounting the sequel...
« on: May 20, 2011, 11:48:03 PM »
While it was a nice day to be out on the water, I really wanted to mount the downriggers first :shrug9:. Initially the plan was to use Scotty L brackets mounted to the inside of the gunwale but since the boat came with inwale cushions figured on trying something different.

Thought I had pretty good idea what I wanted but after trying out a few different mock ups and coming up with way too many options wasn't so sure.

Picked up a stainless downrigger/rail mount from ebay. After trimming down the base from 5 1/2 square to 4 1/2 for a better fit I temporarily placed the rigging on the gunwale. That when the fun began.
