    Default RivNuts, Boats and Avery Blinds GDG

    I saw some discussion a while back to Gut-man about use of Riv-nuts to mount a bow depthfinder for ease of removal when the decoys come out.

    I have a brand new MinnKota bowmount trolling motor, depthfinder and also an Avery blind, all still in the box. I don't intend to work on the avery blind until Fall. But, if the mounting of the AVery blind requires RivNut mounts in the front, I'm wondering if I can't use the same mount point both for a Fishing rig depthfinder and also for the blind.

    I guess the best thing would be to go ahead and rig the blind now, AND rig the motor and depthfinder and work through the whole program in one shot.

    I'm open to suggestions if anyone reading has been there, done it already.

    Chris, you will have to do the Blind first so the mounts for it are in the proper location for your boat. You can then hopefully be able to locate the depthfinder mount using the riv-nuts you installed for the blind mounts. You can always add another riv-nut or two to make a triangular or rectangular mount pattern for the depthfinder.
