The cross-beams are at slightly different depths on different rigs, but I mostly get scallops from the vertical beams anyway. On Eureka (the one that's by itself) everything is deeper-- the cross-beams, the scallops, the bottom. On the twins, I think the second set of cross-beams is at around 105'. I actually dropped my knife once while I was at 90', and luckily it landed perfectly on the beam just below so I was able to retrieve it.Buttons the size of hockey pucks!
I thought the next cross bar after 60’ was 120’?
60’ intervals between the cross bars?
I use a big pig sticker BFK for scallops.
I thought of making a small teak wedge that you could sneak up on a breathing scallop and stick the wedge into the “smile” and let it clamp down on it. Then you can take your time and carefully cut loose the flat side and do a nice clean job removing the button.
You need to have your buoyancy skills nailed down and pretty much second nature diving on the rigs!
