I attached the protractor to the square pc. of wood and used a cotter pin as the pendulum. Align the left or right edge of wood with the cable and pendulum will tell you the angle

Just align rt or left edge to cable depending on port or star. and pendulum will tell you the angle. Hope this helps.

You are welcome & sounds good. Yeah, I’d be afraid of dropping my phone in the water for sure. I suppose you could use a lanyard and tie it to your wrist, but that’s one more thing to keep track of.

Use your cell phone.  Just calibrate it on a level surface before you get on board.

 

Still, not sure why this is so critical.  Speed and temp is much more critical than what depth the lure is at.  A few feet won't make a difference once you find the proper temp.

 

Do you think that the dipsey depths are dialed in?  They would be affected by so much more.
