Depth raider and Scotty rigger question


Recommended Posts

Hey guys. I have the depth raider unit with the spring coil that goes on the black cable for speed and depth transmission . Wondering if there is a good way to set this up with Scotty riggers that have auto stop beads. Seems the beads would catch the spring and cause damage. Any ideas on how to rig this better? Maybe just use a rubber stop that ends at the top of the rigger end instead of the beads? Tha k's in advance.

They make a thimble to replace the Scotty thimble a lot more durable than spring contact Fish307 they should be able to help you out

Would a pice of copper flair at the ends work as well??

 

Deffently seems to be hard to finding the scotty 1211 part.

 

Thanks

Absolutely.  Made one up a few years back. Wrap the antenna spring around the copper and shrink wrap it..
