Both my electrics for the big boat, and the manual for my dinghy use the same mount. One of us apparently has the newer version.
you have an outrigger on your dinghy?

what for??
Downrigger, not outrigger. They are used for getting your bait or lure to a specified depth.

though one of my motivations for owning a boat is the fishing.

After rereading your description of this unknown thing, you said that it's about the size of a six pack approx 10 inch square. Pretty large for any downrigger that I have ever seen. I've got a new idea as to what this detatchable bracket might be. It's a mount for a removable seat in a small runabout boat. I think that this seat mount will snap right in!

I beg to differ. It is as already determined, a Cannon downrigger base. I suspect that the 10" dimension given was in error. Perhaps with the wood, it may reach 10". Look at Moonstruck's photo on page two of this thread. It is clearly identifiable.

What you show in your photo is not for a removable seat. It looks more like a Lazy Susan assembly.

i think you are right Carey, they wood backing is probably 10 inches, not the bracket itself.
