    Daveys Launch Ramp Safety

    Daveys hasn’t been ticketing but you aren’t supposed to park for multi days there. Better safer option is Newport dunes but it’s a little pricey and time consuming but plus side your truck is as safe as being at home.

    How much anchor rode?

    We run a min of 500’ of rope on all small boats wanting to fish Clemente besides the bass skiffs. We run 75’ of chain to 1000’ with a Bruce 33lb claw.

    pulling shrimp pots?

    It wouldn’t be very efficient to pull them like that and the rope is much lighter so if you snag gear you’ll be breaking it off much quicker without a chance to save it on a block.

    They’re really cool until you stuff them under your arm and try to fight a fish. Been there done that I’d rather have aftco bent butt and a separate rail rod. Once you add swivel holders your never stand up fish again.

    Expected and hidden cost of boat ownership

    Shoot a pm if you’re Serious. You should add in another $5k a year for maintenance and start looking for a Early 90s tiara or a a blackfin with gassers because a diesel twin screw for $75k and that yearly budget isn’t gonna happen most likely.
