Installing the downrigger: Mounting

So I snagged a Scotty electric 1106 downrigger during a recent sale because I’m GOING TO CATCH A SALMON ONE DAY DAMMIT and today I had a bit of downtime and decided to mount it.

First I used the plastic template to drill the holes

Then I cut and drilled holes in a bit of wood to be the backing plate

Then it was a matter of through-bolting the backing plate to the plastic plate, and attaching the downrigger

And here it is in the upright position
