mounting a downrigger to a sib

Anyone have any thoughts on this ?
i guess it may help to be specific for fixings so i have a Honwave sib, I'd prefer non permanent idea as its new and i dont want to risk the warranty

Cheers
Andy

The transom is the strongest place on a sib to mount most things to. There is also a strapped on mount for the rear of the tube...

Other than that the seats are pretty strong and of course there are more options with an alloy floor.

I use a cannon stx which I made a bracket out of ply for it. The actual downrigger easely removes as well as extends and swivels, there are small clamp on models available that should mount close to the outboard.
