I suppose I could look it up since Davis is about a mile away from where I work, but that sounds too easy...

Good. I was going to say that's a pricey piece of eqpt to trust to 3 suction cups...

I would agree, but still at 130.00 each. Someone could definitely fabricate one and powder coat it.

Transom downriggers

My previous RIB had downrigger brackets attached to the Transom at bottom sides. I used one for my VHF antenna. The attached photo reflects how they were mounted.

Picture of the board mount for downriggers

Haven't been to this site for a while, but if anyone still cares about ways to deal with downriggers, this pic gives you an idea of what you can do (as stated earlier in the thread).

downriggers

I just realized, that it may be hard to tell, but what you see at the end of the 2x6 are the mounts for the downriggers - but while underway to the fishing grounds, I usually just keep the actual downriggers stowed.
