Funny? But True. It's what green peace does, and it works. Plus this is Southern California . Home of conservation not decimation.

Surprised he wasn't turned into spaghetti by the net.
California seiners will be severely limited or a thing of the past. They bring about their own demise.
Personally, what if all commercial tuna fishing in California was rod and reel. That way you could afford to eat- poor seiners.
This thread is how seiners suck!
In case you seiners haven't noticed, this is a website for recreational fishermen. Private boaters who fish.
One question. Topic: Non- skid.
I researched molded nonskid. Can you explain
It's process and application steps?
What's the footprint dimensions? And the height?
Can you post a couple pics?
Probably way cheaper than $500.
How thick are the walls?
Looks really good.

Evidently, the honest people have nothing to worry about, If what is done is legal. Which was the question posed by inquiring minds Here. None the...
