help me identify this boat part/object

I found this part in one of the storage cabinets on my boat when i bought it.
Every so often when i am looking for something the part comes back to my mind..

now i need your help..
the previous owner was some sort of diver.
it looks very sturdy and looks like it should be mounted somewhere and something clicks into the black clip...

what is this?

RE: help me identify this boat part/object

What's the prize here, Per?* Not knowing the size makes it a litte difficult.* However, my best guess is that it is a mount for a removable downrigger.

Down Rigger bracket. Probably a Cannon or Scotty.

RE: help me identify this boat part/object

i was hoping it was a o/b mount but dont think so..

outrigger? perhaps but why is the wood sandwiching whatever it bolts onto?

the size is apprx 10 inches, size of a six pack but only perhaps 2 inches thick.

RE: help me identify this boat part/object

I concur with it being a downrigger bracket. Not a Scotty however. Penn or Canon???

Per, you have us guessing, but I think the wood "sandwich" could be a clamp that probably clamped over a rail intersection.

RE: help me identify this boat part/object

thanks everybody, guess it is a real mystery as i do not have downriggers on my boat.
it is possible that the PO had it from a different boat or perhaps was considering to install downriggers.

appreciate everyone' help, thank you.

Yup this is a Scotty down rigger mount for the Elecrtic swing mount.

I belive the*other is the old style Scotty mount*for the manual wind up model. I actualy still have and use on the tender. But it could be from one of the other manufacturers.

Bellow is the new style of same from Scotty. The actual downrigger slips into that mount and locks in.

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.

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

Quick mount for the Cannon downrigger. I had a couple on a previous outboard fishing boat. a previous owner must have been a fisherman, I'd bet the teak pieces clamped it onto a handrail so the weight could be lowered over the side near the stern.

Whenever I want to find out what a gizmo is for that I have been storing for years, I throw it away.* Within a week, I need exactly that component and the mystery is solved.

All this talk about cannons, quick mounts, and outriggers on your dinghy-----this thread ought to be moved to OTDE!
