Marcum LX-3 Question... Someone grab a tape measure, Please!

Recommended Posts

Alright Marcum users, I currently have a Zercom Colorpoint and am upgrading to a Marcum LX-3 this fall, the decision has been made!

My question, although odd, is what size (length x width x heigth) does a complete Marcum unit equipped for ice fishing have. Reason being I'm building a plywood insert for my Otter Den icehouse and there is a little compartment to put my fish locator in. I've currently sized the opening based on my Colorpoint dimensions. I'm about to carpet the thing and I need to make sure I'm allowing enough room when I get the Marcum.

Anybody got an LX-3 and a tape measure handy??

Thanks for the quick reply Surface Tension. I'll be carpeting tomorrow unless I have to modify my opening now.

Sounds like a nifty project you've got going. Care to post some pics / details when you're done?

Uncle Grump,

I can put some pics up when its finished. After breaking 2 minnow buckets, almost destroying my depthfinder, and losing a shovel last year while pulling my Otter behind the snowmobile, I decided I need some better organization.

The den sized Otter is pretty small so to get all my gear in there is a challenge. I think I have it figured out and fits the way I fish & my gear very well.

I'm going to work on a similar project for a bigger Otter sled once I see how this one turns out.

Stay tuned for the photos, it might be a couple weeks.

I just got it finished today! It turned out a heck of a lot better than I could have imagined. My Zercom Colorpoint fits in this compartment perfectly, with some room to spare, I hope I left enough for the LX-3. Anyway, it adds weight to the Otter but I'm only going to be pulling it with the snowmobile so it'll work out great.

I don't have a digital camera so I've got to shoot up the film in my camera before I can get the pictures developed, scanned, and posted.

Oh yeah, best part- I was up at Cabela's in East Grand Forks and they had a 60% of tent sale. There was a bin full of boat carpet remnants. I got a killer piece of carpet for $4.00!!! I was so pumped, it was perfect for this project.

Expect them after this weekend. I've got the photos taken, I just have to develop the film, scan them, and put them up.
