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
