Your grandkids will enjoy the annual sand dab derby!!
Why would you ever take off your Merc Opti-Maxes??
Dang, seems like you just finished this thing!!
Don’t even think about it either, MA13...
We have a smoke house in Tumwater?? Where are they located??
I was wondering what that was! How’s their security??
Couldn’t keep up with orders to California!
No need to defend your dreams and ideas, they’re yours and who cares what others think. After all, everyone loves a Livingston, which is a short...
And ruin his favorite T-shirt, although dark red blood on a yellow shirt is excellent contrast!!
I’m wondering will it roll over side to side or end over end??
How much does a tuna charter cost? If you can afford one you can probably afford a decent spinning rod/real that will be great for a tuna bait...
This will be the nicest boat out there on the sand dab grounds.
Can I pick it up next Tuesday??
Yeah, vented clan gun is a must, even the cheap aluminum ones from Cabela’s or Walmart work great. Your back will appreciate the extra $20.
I took the headgear out of an old hard hat and zip tied two large LED flashlights to it, one on each side. It’s heavy but it lights up a 20’ area...
Ok, what was the bet he lost??
Looks actual not hypothetical. It is, however, quite ironic.
Maybe he was taking a piss and zipped his junk up in his zipper and had to get to the dock in a hurry?? Did anyone consider that???
Deleted mine on my 6.0 Powerstroke, easy to do, cleaning out the intake manifold was the hardest part.
But you don’t troll anyway, so who cares!! I know, it’s the necessary evil to get the bait stop going if you can’t find jumpers.
Dude, in this day and age in these parts? Don’t ask, don’t tell!
I’d kill it and bring it into port on the bow of the boat and take a shitload of pictures. Otherwise everyone is going to jump your shit telling...
I thought Lighthouse Marine in GH was a Honda dealer, but their website is down - did they go out of business?
That’s plenty of fish for a 3 or 4 man crew, we shoot for five or so apiece, carking 12 fish is just too much!
I bet we saw this dude Wednesday coming in to the marina when we chopped throttles to come around the jetty to the launch and this dude came...
Any idea how many fish you can safely put on the Arima?
Yeah, nobody puts those ugly, messy things on a countertop anymore, that’s double-wide trailer shit!!
Build yourself one of these and never have loose kill bags on the deck again!!
Yep, several years ago on Stacy’s Parker when that was all they were hitting, cedar plugs of all colors - bare wood got the most love.
PIMPIN’ AIN’T CHEAP!!!
Everybody knows it’s pronounced schwimps!!
Depends, are we using an actual scale or the chocolablilly system of weights and measures??
Holy shit bro, I totally forgot about those!! Glad you liked them and they worked well for you!
Sure, he has a great history with the Coasties!
Actually, no, they’ll use your video as evidence against you for violating the 200 yard restriction, or whatever distance it is. You lured those...
I had a couple of old digitrolls and sold them and bought Mag10s several years ago and I love them. I’ve used both and I like the auto stop...
Hmm, have one machined out of stainless!!
Not crazy at all, Trent and I fished his little 14’ Smokercraft all over Puget Sound, including area 10, at times in some pretty nasty stuff....
Last year I got my finger caught in the levelwind reeling up a sheet of plywood, hurt like a son of a bitch. Since then the levelwind hasn’t...
Must be married, that’ll do it to ya!!
It’s a hell of a nice boat and an excellent candidate for my last “legacy” set of rod holders!! Can’t wait to see it on the water. 20 rod...
Awesome, looks great!! I didn’t know Zittles has a travel lift, I know SwanTown has a big one.
I’ll be curious on how they do, I’ve had squatters living under my house in the past and need to do the same.
Dammit Norm, back/disc issues are no damn joke!! Take care of yourself and take it easy!!! Great of you to offer the rigs up. :rockin:
Awesome job Gooch, that’s what he BD Brotherhood does - we look out for everyone else on the water and if we can help we drop everything and do...
Saw the copter and the search plane fly over, was wondering what happened!
A lot of homes in outlying areas do not have access to natural gas, so propane is the only option for gas. We have natural gas so our bills are...
Puhlease!! An Xtero would have left thing in its wake!!
Taco Bell is now known as Shapes. It all tastes the same, just comes in different shapes.
Too bad he didn’t want a camping trailer too!!
It may seal the deal for the new owner many times in the future!!
Anything south of Sacramento is SoCal to most people, anything north of there is Oregon.
Mine does act like a rudder somewhat, but I built my prop saver out of 4” stainless so I’ll never wrap a DR cable ever again.
Holy crap dude, that’s some scary shit bro!!
Sounds like some real fuckups running things at DOT these days.
Go to a dive shop rent snorkel gear and spear gun and kill your own dinner every night. Had cousins that did this and had great meals every night...
I’ve been doing this for a lot of years, just finally decided to go full time this past fall as I had too much work not to. Like you said, I do...
These days my projects look more like this, way more work but way better money!!
Sorry boys, I’m closing the doors and boarding up the windows. Ericsson Construction has taken off and I no longer have the time to build boat...
Ha, wrong page. Yup, I’m an idiot!! I miss the option to delete a thread.
Put some 400 grit wet sanding paper on an orbital sander ang go to town, that’ll get some heavy scratches out. Then work up through 600, 800,...
I’m guessing that square/rectangular spot the shop vac is sitting on is where the fuel tank goes? Our fuel tank slid up under the cabin floor a...
Thanks but no time!! I’m currently finishing up a good sized open concept remodel in Gig Harbor and the next remodel is nipping at my ankles!
No, we put a bulkhead in at the back of the tank so the bilge area is from the transom to the tank, not beyond - sorry if that was confusing!...
Last Olympic I did we lef the area all the way to the fuel tank open for bilge with NO holes in stringers for water to get anywhere but that area....
Thanks Larry!! This was just as entertaining as the first time!!
I’ve seen them eating massive amounts of brook trout and native wild rainbows in some local streams and lakes!!
I certainly wouldn’t rely on pressure treating alone because as a contractor I’m sure you’ve replaced plenty of rotted pressure treated lumber, I...
The small grooves are from a machine called an incisor, my dad used to build incisor machines for the lumber treating industry, specifically...
I would not use pressure treated wood in a boat, and I’ve never see it used by any wooden boat builders. You want clear, kiln dried if possible...
I like it, the visibility out of those new windows will be fantastic compared to what it was before!
No need for the mess and hassle of fiberglass, Flex Seal will do that job easily!!
Yep, worked out there many times in my past life as a JBL Pro installer. Blue Bird Cafe is a great spot to hear up and coming artists, food is...
CHRISTMAS IS OVER, BITCH!!!![ATTACH]
HA!!!! Or quit snagging up on Ron’s old left over shit he leaves all over the bottom!!
I like trout fishing once in awhile too!!
Here’s my problem with these big walk around boats, I used to think they were the ideal boat until I realized that’s an awful lot of money and an...
750, I run 80# PowerPro and have fished 1000’ when we drop off the ledge, but one break off and my spool gets pretty skinny!
I’ll also agree on the 6.0, my ‘06 F250 Superduty turned 200K last month with never an issue other than the EGR cooler shitting the bed and a...
Maarten “easydoesit86” did a diesel conversion to his sub a few years ago, it’s awesome!
Uh oh, this sounds like it’s going to get interesting.
Suburban?? Another little one on the way Matt??
How ‘bout a Fresca??
To add to this if she has something to tell you turn the damned TV off and look her in the face!! Whether it’s important to you or not doesn’t...
Forever!! 22 years going strong. If she enjoys something while you’re dating, don’t cut it off after you get married, like she will blow jobs!
Speak for yourself, pal!!!
22 years second time around, it’s all in the partner you chose!! Big tits, big mouth and a skill set don’t last long if she’s a bitch, trust me!!...
Does this mean you might have slightly used a chamber vac for sale too??
Somebody say Ugly????
Tumwater actually, but Olympia ain’t far behind and I don’t go downtown there either!!
That’s a chore I bet you don’t miss, watching Paul can get tiresome especially when the ice in your your scotch has melted! I mean Christ, why...
I avoid The Blue Tarp City at all costs.
Ok, I didn’t put anything for “How can we make Bloodydecks better?”, y’all do NOT want to hear that, flamethrowers are frowned upon.
With 15 large clams in the pot, there’s no shortage!! I agree though, clam chowder anywhere else might as well be potato soup!
Yes sir, glad you liked it!
You’ll love this recipe, it’s easy and delicious. The only thing I have changed is I sink a whole stick of butter in just before the clams go in...
I always do New England Razor Clam Chowdah!!...
Better yet - don’t go in there at all!!
That in floor bait well looked like a bathroom sink, pitiful!! Glad to see you back on this project Charles.
I’ve used headlamps and lantern, the lantern is really nice. I now have headband out of a hard hat that I zip tied two 1500 lumen flashlights to...
Been wondering when this would happen!! Need more power!!
It is a different version, this one apparently has a check valve at the bottom of the vent to keep it clear going in.
Keith, same story here and man, the moon and sky were incredible! Great clamming with warm weather, no wind or rain or real crowds, great night....
He should stick around, he’s got 13 trophy points - so close to his first residual check!!! :urno1:
Couldn’t get used to the taste of Etec koolaide??
So to clear things up, you want 100% beef burgers, no venison.
DAMN!!! You aren’t going to find chops that look this good at WalMart!!
I’d take my own video down too if it proved what a dumbass idiot I was!!
Just tryin’ to add some levity around here same as you, don’t take it so serious.
They made it back with 21, but damn what a long day!!
YOUR MOM!!!! :rofl:
We’ve always had them, it just wasn’t well known or as popular as it has become in recent years. I think it’s more of not even the tuna could...
DAMMIT!!! I HATE thieves!!
I’m no naval architect either, but since these are on the bottom of the floatation bracket, and even though a poor choice in scuppers...
That’s what I said, and warm, too - a heated shitter - now that’s BIG PIMPIN’!!
Yep, nailed that one!!
I think you are right, we are getting trolled, just not by Aaron since I’ve met him at the dock buying fish from us and he is in fact, the man on...
I went with the Chef’s Choice wheel sharpener and I love it, makes even my sod blade razor sharp. You can tell a guy with a good sharpener by the...
Your profile says Hewes, but that looks to be one of the smaller Stabicraft, how do you like it?
Great looking meat, great looking lady, you’ve got it dialed in bro! :rockin:
From the description of what happened, I would bet it had been taking on water the whole way out. For it to fill up and swamp in minutes there’d...
You called it in the truck on the way home, took a nasty shit from the swim step - either seems to be appropriate to how this thread has gone!!
Awesome, congratulations!! I loved Chasin’ Tail’s Hewie 240 Alaskan, that boat was awesome and I wish I’d had the money when he sold it, it...
That’s the right outlook, it happened, can’t change anything about it and it will play out how it does. Great to see you’ll be back out there in...
It’s gone the way most of us expected it would and with the key players as predicted, it’s just the way it is with all the experts around here.
Put the nut back on with a stack of washers and keep cranking!!
Yes you do and you should advertise for them all you can. Gay? What’s really gay is the crews with matching outfits that DON’T!!! bieber
Plus as Brian said, the bidet feature is quite refreshing. You’d need a hell of a nice boat to get one of those in the head!!
No shitter tank is needed if you hang your ass off the offshore bracket squirting chocolate milk, witnessed this first hand Monday while we were...
Right down the pipe, served up like a meatball knowing it wouldn’t take long for some deviant to hit it out of the park!! :D:rockin:
Exactly why my reels are lefties also, I like to pull on my rod with my strong arm...
Also growing up with only spinning reels it’s more natural...
Awesome show, great opportunity for you guys. The only part I don’t really care for is the advertising of the fishery that could bring many more...
Crab pot buoys won’t do much damage, we’ve hit them before and it’s a pain in the ass, but we wouldn’t be able to pull it if we wanted to. Would...
Now we know what happened, thanks for the details. Glad the owner has possession of the boat, he can assess what initially happened and hopefully...
I think he is saying he felt there was an emergency since he nearly hit it at speed, by his first post.
At least it’s out of the water and an...
Pretty much my point, true experts in salvage with the right knowledge and equipment can do just about anything we mere mortals can’t. From what...
I wouldn’t assume much from this, if you have any knowledge of the Bristol Bay sockeye fishery, it’s common. There is an imaginary line drawn on...
I would guess the beach was used to right the boat and drain it, no way to do that in open water without airbags and salvage booms, but that’s...
He’s local, his location says Dana Point - that’s right next to San Juan Capistrano, Washington!
Well there you go, it was an eminent danger because a guy on Bloodydecks said so!! This could get interesting.
It never does, public comment is just a formality to give the illusion that the public has input on decisions made, which time after time proves...
Will it help me track down and stay on the orca pods??
No problem dude, I’ll help you out if you’ll shrimp next to me - I GOTTA’ SEE THIS SHIT IN PERSON!!!!!
So how’d it go???
Pretty basic for someone who knows electricity. Get someone who knows what they’re doing!!
Never leave anything on the dock unattended. You’d be surprised what will walk off!!
Ok, I’m in with Chasin’ Tail, can’t make Friday night but don’t target perch - what’s the troll spread look like and is a bare cedar plug still...
A Bayliner you say?? Sounds like it’s more seaworthy than mine, I need to watch the govt auctions!!
I love the French guy’s comments “If we let the English get away with it they’re going to clean the whole place out”. He just didn’t add the last...
Easy - Orca hatcheries!!
Holy crap, that would be like sucking on a tube sock! Disgusting!!
You can buy the old Tuna.com!...
I would give the standard “bullshit, there’s no fish in MA13”, but with the 40-70 boats all fishing a quarter mile stretch of bank I’d say the...
Guess the squealing stopped and is now a horrid groan?
THIS!!! As a veteran I do not stand to be recognized at events nor do I want thank yous. I served as I felt it was my duty and not for any...
What a needy bastard lately!! :D
Tomorrow might be that day!
Sorry to hear your dad is no longer with us Geoff, he was hilarious, I enjoyed hanging out with you guys for a couple hours bending your tubing....
Damn women don’t let you forget a damned thing!
I’m glad you’re no expert because an expert would notice that if he had rear-ended a car there would be a car in front of him and he would not be...
Cripes, when isn’t there a crisis in Tuna Town? Tuna Town in and of itself is a crisis!!
CORRECTION - If you aren’t freezing crab you aren’t catching enough!!
Make sure it’s 2” pipe and not 2” tubing, tubing is measured outside diameter and measures 2” outside whereas 2” pipe is measured on the inside...
It is but clean burning, so not useable on a no outboards lake.
It’s crazy how much soot and crap is in your intake, my EGR valve was completely encased in heavy soot and non-functional, all that shit is going...
Ya’ big puss!!! These are for our albacore, maybe you can throw these without breaking yourself in half!?!?
I just shell it out and vacuum pack it, seems fine, but it’s never lasted past 6 months before we gotta have crab cakes.
How do you like it? I looked at those, interesting option to run the camp stove bottles, curious how long they last.
Yep, my ‘06 F250 6.0 blew my EGR cooler two years ago at about 150K miles, had the option of the bullet proof egr cooler or a delete kit, I chose...
I’m pretty sure these would work for big YFT!
I got some smaller ones for albies but got these for just in case. Hey, you never know,...
Nice work Limey, yeah I’m not real fast on the text messages PM thing either, too much shit to do!
I have a couple of big 8” poppers if you want to try them you’re welcome to take ‘em with you!
Awesome, glad you finally got him out. Glad to see you got the boat ironed out too.
4 year old ad, but hey, it could be for sale again!
For that those little Tohatsu’s are a pretty good deal I would think. I think just about any boat dealer carries them. Allison Marine in Kent is...
Your best bet from Anacortes is to drive over the day before. Traffic and road construction around here is way unpredictable in the summer months.
Prius? PRIUS?? Damn son, do you not have balls???
Ok........ so, what followed you home? Tease.
That’s what I’m wondering!!
Well, Your Lordship, it’s how most of us find fish to get a baitstop going - we can’t all just go anywhere in the ocean, flash our pearly whites...
You gotta get some zucchini clones, those and Mexican flags are the two most productive we use!
No shit Goat, broken hand was the fastest $48,000 I ever spent! Hellava down payment.
6ft swell 2’ wind waves at what duration? 30 seconds, awesome - 3 seconds, not so awesome!!
I might have missed it, but what was the weight of this state record arrowtooth flounder?? I need to know what I’m shooting for!!
Violently smooth sometimes!
Man, this thread went downhill fast!!
Shapes are what we call any kind of evidence of sea life - dolphin fins, whale tails, sun fish fins, shark fins, you know - shapes other than...
Nope, zucchini clones and bare cedar plug, once we hooked up we threw swimbaits to no avail. We have in the past though, trolled slow.
Yesterday, actually!! It’s in my driveway now.
Nope, I was at that spot the next day with Stacy, due to no bait in Ilwaco, we were a troll show, then threw swim baits and iron at hookup. The...
All is a very subjective term; not all play by the rules.
Well he is an asshole you know!!
Damn dude, I hope you don’t need to go under the knife yet again, back issues suck donkey balls. Hopefully...
I think this is more up his alley!
Or if you want to do it yourself, Cannons are pretty easy to work on, I get all my parts from fish307.com.
So....... did your time of the year end Sunday as well??? Too soon???
WHAT THE L!!
We were at about that same spot yesterday, temp was 63+ all day.
So maybe it should be “Pipmin’ ain’t cheap..... for most people!”
Funny. Anywhere in the world you say America, they know exactly where you mean. Never heard a Mexican outside of the US claim to be anything...
And those who stand next to them reeling manual bitching about it the whole time!!
Congratulations Jaime!! I was worried at first when I saw the pic you were selling the boat, glad to see that’s not the case at all!!! Thank...
I heard he caught them right off the south jetty.
Used to be Genye Eye’s.
Didn’t somebody post up here as a Tanacom repair tech? My level wind stops moving under load.
It’s the culverts, the environment, the stream bed habitat, bird predation, they say. Nope, just poachers!
I’d like to know where he gets his anodized pipe!!
What was it I did for you, was it a rod holder modification? My memory isn’t what it used to be. As Bill Ryan said I am slammed, but not...
GOOD GAWD!!! Now THAT is an upgrade!! Congratulations Riley!!
Looks like he’s waiting on his prostate to let him piss to me.
If all you got is a little, it just is what it is!
My bad, I mistook your name Fully Loaded for Fully Involved, my mistake! Still though, love the Farmall, I’ve wanted a cub for a long time!
Cripes, how many boats do you own??? This one, Trophy next to it, Parker now a Thunderjet! How much for the Farmall? That’s a sweet tractor!
Damn Greg, as remote as you are I’m surprised you had this happen, but I guess weirdos like to hang out in the woods out of they view of the...
Congratulations. Saw the Parker on the hard at Swantown, fresh bottom paint looks great, looks like it’s ready to go again!
Yep, looks like a Hoh to me.
That was a day you were glad there was a wheelchair available! That hurt everyone!!
Braid all the way to a swivel with a 4’ mono leader, different colors is great for tangles. Swivel with a coastlock makes for fast leader changes...
Any charter ad I ever see gives the price per angler for the trip. I don’t see anything that indicates a charter ad, how many captains on here...
Great reels for live bait Albacore!
How much for the Wooldridge??
Great price, someone got a good deal on a new Mangina!
Well shit, if I’d seen this soon enough, I’d let you use mine, it’s yours anytime you want it.
Yeah, he had a tough time spotting jumpers up in the shrimp tower, but he got a lot of comments!! Fun day, good shrimpin’! The memosas as were...
I’m trying to understand why you wouldn’t want brakes on every axle? Seems to me you’d want as much stopping power as possible, but that’s just me.
Sounds like you learned something, glad you got them back!
That’ll buff out.
Their regulations??? HA!!! Those are our regulations, the tribes have no regulations!! As we know and have learned for years now, not a damned...
Which they did, heavily, no shrimp in MA13 this year either. Sickening. Must be nice to fish for whatever you want and take as much as you want...
That’s a lot of props to keep braided line out of!!
Somebody pissed in your Cheerios??
The epoxy lined heat shrink tubing.
I don’t care how well you know the manager or their friends, Home Depot will never carry Fireball or any other liquor no matter how nicely you ask!
We have a mutual friend who had a Parker with a Yamaha 250 with a Permatrim, he used to load that thing down with so many tuna it would hardly get...
That is a very astute observation!!
Bummer on the scratch on that pretty paint!
If he’s going to total it in six months, might as well be! Plus, not all of us can afford to buy our kids new cars.
Damn!!! Reading the title of this thread I thought there might be a Coldwater coming available for sale!!
Dude, this place is a bottomless pit of darkness, there is no downward limit.
Salmon - HA!!! Laurence doesn’t know or even care what those slimy things are!
The Del is our favorite hotel!! Great place, rich history.
From what I hear, no matter how much bleach you use you can never unsee a Westport 10 bare cooter. Just look away, just look away, it is your...
I’ve saved a few from seals over the years, they are just fine. Last one ate the belly off, filets were fine!
Nasal spray you say?? I gotta’ look into that!
Can I have the Thor Built??
I have good like with the basic Dramamine, but I start taking it the night before to get it in my system. Scopace was my go-to, but that one has...
Glaring red flags staring you right in the face. I’d pass is I were you unless it’s at fire sale price!
And they don’t quit at one!
Still just a big ass two seater - but I like it!!
OFF TOPIC ALERT!!
Me too! The green one is in for repaint and a bow railing, it’s over 20 years old. The wood is bleached out and the owner...
Beer instead of gas money - got it!!
Devlin Boats are wood/glass composite hulls sprayed with three coats of Interlux. These hulls are gorgeous, these are my latest railing projects....
When I lived in Ft Lauderdale we went out of Haulover many times. On stormy days the waves would stand straight up and I’ve seen cigarette style...
Hell in Seattle you’d never know they were wearing it.
You reel the last 10 feet, that’s enough for me!!
Family and kids come first, good on you man!! Someone will get a killer turn-key setup with this one!!
Those of us that love our lektrik reels really don’t give a flying rat shit what the rest of you think, but keep it coming we find it ignorantly...
The older couple sitting on the pier with a trash can full of crab. Elderly, drug users, frequent fliers. Sad.
Or even a grinder and cutoff disc. Simple, just cut the top off.
Norm, if you had Carrie do this 3/4s of the boats would run straight into the jetty. You gotta creatively use all your advantages!
The first openers this year were daylight digs, or at least late afternoon no light needed and I certainly liked that much better but it’s fun to...
Nice haul, that’ll take awhile to clean!
RULES VIOLATION!!! You absolutely cannot hint at a new boat and not spill the details, I call FOUL!!! C’mon Chris, what gives??
Glad to hear...
7 Mary 3, 7 Mary 4
Also misspelled $300!
Holy crap, this is almost as good as the neon rose thread!! Good luck with the sale, if I could afford them I’d buy them, the mojo you put on...
No Fireball??? You were cheated!!!
I love these lektrik reel threads, it let’s me and others who need them know who not to fish with, ever. Some of us who have limitations don’t...
We just set a deep cycle battery in the corner for the front guy to use.
I don't think there is anything wrong with that, but I'm of the tolerant mindset. I mean actually tolerant, not the ones with the "coexist" or...
It was bound to happen around here, first man buns, then nobody under the age of 30 knows where they're supposed to pee anymore, now boats...
Yep, earning a living has put a big crimp into my fab schedule, to the point that I don't have much time for it. Thankfully, construction has...
Who Dat does build some really nice stuff, top quality! I don't think they do stainless, however, if that's what your after. They do work with...
That was you guys that almost lost your lektrik reel?? Glad you got them, I hope they work out!
Tanicom 750 going strong for four years, no issues and I never do anything to it but clean it off once in a great while.
Damn, we ran south to NorCal Saturday morning, just missed you or I'd have been happy to help out.
That'll work. Just mix it into peanut butter.
Who says I didn't??
Then our successful turkey hunt pics would look more like this!!
Happy Thanksgiving, Bitches!!
Thanks, she's a beaut!
What color is this 280?
USAF 85-89 Beale Airforce Base, heavy aircraft maintenance technician - crew chief SR-71, KC-135Q
That's freakin' KILLER!!
Would like to hear and see pics of what they found wrong, too! I always love to see bad work, it's great for what-not-to-dos.
No problem, pics are good!
Glad to hear it is taken care of, I'm sure it was just a matter of doing it the right way, I'm sure they pointed out the mistakes made and how...
And you think your drone would be difficult to land on a moving boat??
All this and an integrity check on your cleat welds!!
Good God Jake, be careful man, guys get water boarded around here for mentioning stuff like that!!
My liver wishes I could be like Vance!!
Very rarely, if ever pull a hook and if I do it's because I put too much drag on them. We all went straight braid to the swivel years ago and...
Or why not run all braid? I love when we get tangles nobody gets sawed off.
And the one that cost me huge - "If you already have insurance and you like it, you can keep it!"
My plan was dropped on me two years ago August,...
Don't know the name but the new tribal place on the river just over the bridge in Aberdeen has it, we use it all the time on the way home.
On Stacy's Parker he would plug the scuppers with rubber plugs to not put blood in the water during a bait stop, that helped immensely and ended...
So you break off your line and re-tie after each fish?? Got something against pliers??
Seems your main line is rated less than your leaders,...
Yeah, that works. I don't miss hurricane season at all, Andrew was enough to run me outa' there for good!
Especially when you know this is an indoor storage facility if you've been there, that that pile of boats used to be up on the racks five or six...
Of course, this was all "good ol' days", I'm sure it has changed a lot since then.
Very expensive and very labor intensive.
(Edited down from a long winded, un-interesting diatribe about mold making and nothing to do with this...
Mark, this must be a nice change of pace for you to actually 'round the jetty worry free!!
Kim - hire someone competent to fix it, you'll spend some cash but you'll get it taken care of now - you got enough to worry about. Well wishes...
Just look at it this way ya'll. Around windows everything should be installed from the bottom up. That bottom piece of J metal was obviously...
Outriggers out? Sounds familiar.
It is different only in that the panels run horizontally and not vertically and doesn't, or shouldn't affect how you flash and trim your openings...
Hard to tell exactly from the pics what that was, but sure that makes perfect sense to use what is basically a sponge meant to keep insects and...
Much better pictures!! Much more clear and easier to see what went on. First off, their metal skills suck!! The siding should be tight to the...
Glad to hear it, but The One?? Dude. You just moved to Florida. The One is potentially coming a dozen or more times every year!!
It appears in the first pic that metal siding was installed first and then the windows?
Poor install, windows first, siding cut to...
Worth all the extra effort, as original they could be a very wet ride with little to no bow flare.
This guy did a first class rebuild on one down...
Molds were destroyed for partly this reason, but moreso because they would not be used anymore and they took up a lot of room - just no reason to...
Not this one too?? Man Ryan you go through the boats brother!
Good luck with the sale.
Nope, plenty of rebuilds and re-powers of the diesels but never seen an outboard swap before. They are highly sought after and hold value quite...
They were dual inboards never outboards. I spent almost two years laying up hulls at Bertram before I moved out here, lots of 31 Berties all over...
You mean his lady the Alumacat?
Awesome, boat looks killer!! Looks like that kill back rack did it's job!
That's what Chasin' Tail does with his gear, works great!
DISREGARD!! KimH gave the props, no delete post feature anymore?!?!
I was assuming you're using a leader too unless tying your hook on the top shot. If you break off, you just tie on a new hook?
Not a great pic, but these things.
I like them because they are a smooth surface all the way around so the leader swivel doesn't catch...
We have foregone topshots all together, just braid to a halibut clip to a 36" leader or so, leader is usually 40lb flouro, but that's just us....
Awesome!! The American spirit survives through anything and everything.
Come on back anytime, just keep it on the down low!! Rehearse your chant now - there's no fish in area 13, there's no fish in area 13!! If I see...
It's crowded enough down here for such a small area and not a huge run of fish!! Last saturday 41 boats all working a 1/4 mile stretch of shoreline.
I need to experience that in person!! :D
I like 40-50# flourocarbon leaders with a #1 ringed Gamakatsu bait hook and a swivel on the other end, palomar knots all around. Some guys don't...
They were all this size, not a peanut in the bunch. Best grade of fish overall I've seen on a single trip!
Righteous trip, brother!! The Woman get oil stained??
Me? Heck no, my gear is on point!! One guy kept breaking his cheap Berkeley 30lb leaders and cheap ass Mustad hooks. It took him awhile to...
Hell yeah Roger, bad ass!! Needs blood all over it!
Well damn dude, if they were closer to me we'd take care of them or find someone from our church who would. I hope you find someone, bro!
"Or more", I really don't know how long it's been, I can't keep track of time anymore it seems to fly by so fast these days. I guess that's...
Poor guy has waited on me 6 months or more and I just haven't gotten around to it. These are the golden days for construction and who knows how...
Awesome!! Glad you got something up there, I have been so slammed doing remodels that I haven't had time to weld anything in months!
Looks damn good to me, amazing clarity!
No, that would be run past them at close range with max wake and knock them overboard!
When it's head came out of the water it was as big around as a 55 gallon drum, it hauled Stacy and I to the transom like we were made of paper....
Could've used it Saturday for that mako!
Several years ago the whales were in an amongst all of us sporties in the fleet and one dude got his downrigger cable snagged on one and it tore...
That's where all the dicks hang out!!
Depends if you mean boy strippers or girl strippers....
Ah yes, the big fitty for me end of last year, welcome to the other side of the hill!
Liberal media could care less.
Damn, glad to see your back on the water!
I'm not so sure we're behind at all!
Hey Reid, any results or final determination to the cause of the explosion??
Here we go again, same story different year. Just forget about this fishery, it'll never happen again.
Easier to see pink rods!!
Just swap electronics with Kodak Moments, they're like brand new top of the line.
It will be strange to not hear 6,000 calls to Fishin' Luhrs out there!
Hang on to that 750 though, it is truly the shit for halibut, I use mine for lings too.
I've been on Facebook for years and never had any problem. Lots of Bloodydeckers on there.
Man, I'm hoping for the best for you! Another vote for Tom's Outboard in Oly if he could get you in but he's always busy. Sounds like you're a...
I've seen it personally. At a lake as kids my sister was maybe two years old and was in knee deep water and tripped and fell over. She just laid...
GOOD!!! Those things were always a pain in the ass, more trouble than they're worth!!
He did make some killer koolaide!!
That's gotta' be the latest shrimp day I've ever heard of!
Do you even know what those are???
I'm sure there's plenty of room in the middle of he deck to move around!!
Some of us never knew there was a set orthodoxy. We just found methods and gear that made things far easier and worked better for us - braid and...
Because when 4 or 5 rods are hooked up and you are knitting sweaters and crocheting blankets down there, braid doesn't get sawn off and usually...
Advice for a novice? DON'T DO IT!!!
We had the Ring doorbell for a bit, I didn't want to pay a monthly fee and it didn't work with our musical doorbell. I'll look into this Arlo...
Crickets on this one Q, you were on a real roll there for a minute!
Not your problem, driveway warranty in full effect!!
I am assuming this was supposed to say NO mechanical issues rather than NOW??
Back where she came from, East Coast!!
Looks killer Roger, that's s hell of an upgrade!! Love that kill bag rack, where'd you get that?? :D:D
This guy does nice work, he already has your ring!
Uh, yeah. Thanks, bro! :finger:
Bunch of Duckfarts!!
I've used dabs once in the sound but never on the coast, way too many tuna bellies to get rid of now. Where do you catch sand dabs for bait on...
I see Maarten hiding in the back! Outstanding!!
Well, it is if they ever want another invite!
For all I know, they could be counting boats leaving Westport but I've never seen 'em. Fish checkers should be on duty until sunset or the last...
Here's where I question WDFW and their fuzzy math. 53,905 pounds is an awful exact number, yet our fish were not weighed or checked. They at...
I get through Amazon.
Solid work bro! Lektric reels take the question out of a missed bite - reel up to check bait or leave it down. Us small boat guys just gotta...
I learned a long time ago, find your own stuff. Auto parts workers know nothing about cars, I remember buying a brake wheel cylinder and the guy...
I'd tape them off, it dries fast so cleanup can be a bitch! Wear rubber gloves, too, that shit is hard to get off of your fingers.
Yep, time for a refresh!
Sharkhide it and you don't have to, it will look like new for years. Cheap insurance and protection!
I use it on all of my aluminum projects, simple to apply, just wipe it on dry in seconds. I'll put on two coats, it lasts for years.
Loud ones too
Gee, that's mighty generous of them!
Not much for secret, untouched spots out there!
He's got a nose piercing now, he'll be the envy of all his friends. Thanks Paul, now they'll all want one!
MA10, so why not just launch at Don Armeni?
That's all well and good, but the first half of the story is missing - how'd you lose it over the side in the first place??
Ha, I was wondering who I heard in the Parker next to us say "That's Steve over there.", I was thinking I don't know that boat or that bunch of...
Somebody lucky enough to receive a custom built rod as a gift from Mrs. NWoftheBrink I suspect! He must've shit himself twice - when it went...
That's unusual, 2'itis in reverse!
The Ugly Bayliner Rod Holders sold the boat didn't they.
Breathes a sigh of relief, hoping it wasn't one of mine! Took a minute to realize you guys were on the HOOKER.
Holy crap Reid!! Damn lucky it happened that close to the launch, we pulled out just before you and were just past the transient docks when we...
I was referring to the doll!!
Not sure I believe the "gently used" part....
Maybe one or two.
Way to come through for the man boys, the brotherhood is strong in these parts! :cheers:
Holy crap, twin outboards? That has to be a crazy story of what happened there.
Well planned, sir, I bet we missed a lot of that shittery!
Add another $10-12K for new electronics.
WORD!! MAKE GOOD CHOICES!!
A lot of guys still don't have DSC. Why would they not do that and alert everyone on the water??
I love their way of thinking! Since 300,000 salt water licenses were bought and all of their catch record cards include halibut, then they assume...
Nice choice on the Parker!
You are correct, Defiance bought Arima a couple of years ago, though they haven't been affiliated for all that long.
And why no broadcast on 68 when they know all recreational boaters monitor 68?
Then again, towing capacity and horsepower of the truck had nothing to do with dumping the Grady on the freeway, just sayin. Are you sure about...
I guess the Co-Managers finally buckled under and agreed to let us have a token season, what a joke. It's going to be an absolute shit show out...
12# hasn't failed us. Yet.
Matt has the weight right, downrigger ball. We've had many times 4 and 5 pounds of lead wouldn't take a big yellow eye under the surface.
So which part of the store is this gear in? I stopped in today for some polish and wax and took a look and didn't see tuna gear anywhere....
Did this for a buddy's boat, after patching a couple of holes - welding on a gas tank is so much fun - I bead blasted the tank, shot it with...
You'd be better off bead blasting, a wire wheel will shed steel into your aluminum and rust, a stainless wheel maybe, but dissimilar metals don't...
But did they get any fish??
Just got back from a cruise to Mexico and walking through Cabo I saw this and said to my wife holy shit, I know this boat!!
No kidding, what a tool bag.
Happy birthday John, enjoy it - you don't have too many left!!
I'll have to say hi next time I'm in to see Myra!!
So that means they actually caught 104,000 pounds in 39 hours. Damn!!!!
It's all good, my phone is flaky as shit on here lately.
This is great info for when the day comes that I have a boat custom built to my specs!!
Awesome project, was it outboard from birth?
The only time it will be down is to go in and out of the shop. His doesn't have vents, but it is nowhere near strong enough to trailer with it down.
[ATTACH] That could double as a four man poker table at the slip!
Or, BLAME THE FIREBALL!!
Damn phone is acting up, can't delete the extra pics, sorry.
HA!!! FIGURED IT OUT!!
Here is the tower folded down.
Hell, OSHA of any type is a slow down, nice job fellas.
I could see your point if it is water based paint, the water evaporates and you would lose the water weight, however the heavy solids left add...
No way, he is outside of the parameters for a required enclosed cabin!! Sheesh if I knew I had an unlimited budget, I could've found something...
Gas line HA!! I hope he never does that one again, he'll never hear the end of it!!
He bought an icom backup radio and antenna and I installed...
I hope you guys are wearing cups, that grouchy old bastard is liable to nut punch you as soon as you walk in the door!
Oh, and no on the second helm rear steering station. It's pretty much done as it is.
Through bolted the tower and the forward-most mounting points of the rod rack. The rod rack is adhered with 5200 and the rear feet have a screw...
If you go by avatars, Vance would be good at polishing other things beside some boats!!
Good grief, that thing is pulling so fast you can't grab the rope!!
Genie Aye!! Paul is the boat spa specialist, he'll make it shine like a diamond in a goat's ass!!
He's so confused!!
Question was to Q, Mike Quimby, Chasin' Tail. He might want to look at this since yours and his boats are similar in design and Year.
Hmm. Q? Have you checked this??
If all you need it notches, that's easy. Just don't Risserize your fingers!
Peace of mind is priceless!! Leaks from unknown sources is so hard to diagnose and cure. Great job!
Yours are the next set, soon as I get back from a cruise to Mexico and build a railing for Devlin. You'll be done by tuna time.
He would only make that mistake once!
I saw that, either that or the pictures are reversed.
Hmm, hadn't thought of those before, thanks!! I don't actually give firm dates because you never know what can happen. I've had to delay a day...
I like spending other people's money!!
Sounds like me during tuna season, a man has got to have his priorities straight!!
Chunky Longcast - NAILED IT!!
Thanks, makes it a whole new boat, we're excited to get it out as soon as the weather cooperates.
Not the best pics, I'll get some good ones this weekend when I go down there to buff and polish his roof, we filled all the old holes and sprayed...
Cool, I was wondering!! Anytime is a good time for an upgrade!
Here you go buddy, get after it!
Do you pull the radar dome each time you trailer?
Pinch a nickel so tight make the buffalo USA!
Wire cutters might be a better option.
Johnson's Home and Garden in Maple Valley right down the road from you carries a bunch of stihl equipment, one of my favorite stores!
True, but I don't try to take your old ones in on trade at 1/4 of what they're worth just so I can resell them for 3x what I paid for them!!...
Trade in at dealer is the biggest ripoff going!
No surprise here.
Will they listen and actually consider our input?
No but I have put them on a Duckworth, it's not much different than a standard wiper install, except you install the anchor post for he pantograph...
What's the matter, tired of reeling in fish standing next to me??
Sweet, we'll get her some new jewelry up top before too long too!
Looks like I found some new crab pot buoys!
I have installed several for different guys, easy to do and it's nice to wipe the entire window clean.
Lumicat has an WBR, some ass-backwards outfit.
I keep watching for the little drug pushers at Fred Meyer, the fat kid has got to have his Thin Mints!!
I'll get some pics and post them next week if you want.
Vance is the man for grinders and abrasives!!
Yeah, I have no pics. The guy that owns the boat took some but I never did. Bummer too, it was extensive and very invasive! His was outboard...
Nice ride, needs lots more rod holders!
I have pics somewhere, I'll see what I can dig up.
I replaced stringers and deck on an Olympic two years ago and you are right, the glasswork on the stringers was a total joke! They obviously...
On Rockfish's old Grady, we moved the mounting bracket from on top of the roof to the bottom and added a lower row. Lots of options.
No problem. I'll send you the bill!! :finger:
Youll figure it out!
Not too hard to lower those or add a lower set, I did something similar a few years ago for Fishin' Luhrs. Some 90deg. Bent tubing over the edge...
Take these, they're are like new, he never uses them!!
I prefer 7-8" but have space day them 6" on a single row before.
I thought it already had a name??
And don't forget electricity and lots of it!! Most people have no clue of the real costs associated with this type of project.
Those are some long ass sheets of aluminum!!
Lot so of places online too, I've used US Composites many times.
Fiberlay in Seattle has everything you'll need.
Damn that was fast!
Yeah, don't skimp on hardware. If it costs say $10 more for a bag of bolts, isn't your boat worth it?? For mine and client projects, I buy my...
As far as I know it is still 15 years of age before a license is required. Catch record cards can be used when they are old enough to participate...
Price is double if you've left a Gatorade bottle full of piss on the boat!!
'63, almost certain to be asbestos, you can scrape a small sample into a ziplock bag and have it tested, it cost me about $30 for a rush analysis...
Awesome, you LOVE you some clicker!!
Yeah, from what I hear it's the quiet, not much to do island.
Screwed over by a member here?? Do tell, get the weasel grease!!
What, no price?? That's a fine, brand new shrimpin' boat!
Surpluss Metals in Kent has an excellent remnant store, they have lots of aluminum sheet 2 x 2 on the shelves.
At least more than one of you can turn around in his shop!!
Roche Harbor is way out of range, Tacoma is not far at all - sounds good to me!
Rod holders look much better. I keep trying to talk Q into redoing his too!
I've seen Arimas with that setup before!
This next summer we'll have to replicate this test with a full load of ice and tuners and see what she'll do in real world oh shit conditions!
They could easily turn those six rod holders across the back into eight! And yeah, tulip flares or nothing!!
At least you didn't drag this one down the highway!!
I call that crabturkracken!
Nisqually Reach anchovy under a bobber used to be money!
Somebody around here builds kill bag racks to solve those problems!! :D
Whatever he's got is far more than I do! He asked about s NR27 however, I bet "a guy" who owns one will be along before too long to give his...
I Fish on several 2320 Parkers as well, where your comparison lacks is the tiny cabin of the Parker which only seats 3, and not very comfortably....
Fish on one with twin Yami 200s on a regular basis, it is the full shit badass machine! 250s are not necessary and would just add weight and fuel...
Well if you're going to do it, do it right!![ATTACH]
Excellent, far better design and construction, you'll have no further issues with that one!
Do it yourself, tile work is easy.
Happy birthday Limey!! Hope you had a good day a couple days later!!
I find that if you keep her laughing, she's good to go!!
You do a good job of puke and rally though, I've had guys onboard that just quit and give up, dead weight in the way.
No kidding, it's like a girl's club out there!!
These are what are called toe cracks, it can happen if your welding dirty material, dirty filler, moisture on the metal, just generally poor...
They should know something about leverage, too.
Yeah, THIS!! I've fixed a couple of these, it doesn't need re-welding, it needs redesigned!! That little brace is not going to do a damn thing....
Awesome. Looks like your winch stand can go back even a bit farther. Great job on the trailer build!
The few times my wife has had to go she uses a bucket and is thankful for it. She did, however, absolutely love The Peddler's onboard head, not...
It has been an honor and a pleasure to get to know you Kevin, see you in Florida!
Good use for an old self propelled mower!
In the video I saw, those things ROCK!! A LOT!!
THAT'S A BIG BITCH!!! Damn, now that's a killer boat, worth every penny of the asking price, quality construction and extremely well thought out...
I'll think about it.:D
You never know, enquiring minds want to know!! I remember reading about a thru-hulls under water and they had a good reason for it too, doesn't...
This. Since it's a bathroom, these older homes didn't have GFCI circuit breakers, or even receptacles in the bathrooms. As long as that circuit...
No biggie, I love the discussion!!
The other thing, if they are in fact extrusions, I am pretty sure 5000 series aluminum can't be extruded so it would most like be 6000, not so...
Appears welded on the outside as I see no slots in the hull, and the upside down pic pretty much clears it up - no chine plate built in. To me,...
You haven't met my inlaws!!
No doubt, the manufacturers have learned that the owners/users are smart enough to know what they want and will pay for it. It used to be you...
You're explaining it fine, but I don't think you're getting that I know the difference. The picture isn't quite clear enough to get a good look,...
Same difference, it's a chine that is welded onto the hull rather than incorporated into the construction of the hull, much cheaper and easier of...
I like a smooth bottom!! I hear you're goi g up to see it in person - leave the checkbook at home!!
I'd love to see it in person, they sure look it to me though. If not extruded, then a plate welded on rather than integrated into the hull. CT's...
Bad ass!! I like everything about it except for those extruded chines.
Eggzackly!! Gotta read your regs, and be willing to make the drive - a 12 crab limit is worth a couple of trips a year to us.
TonyG, The fish box method works great, ice chest with ice works great too. We left the drain plug out so each time we moved the water would...
Yeah, lots of crabs, these will take some effort to get cleared up. [ATTACH]
Apparently not, he keeps coming back, but you could threaten to sue him - I hear that's popular!
That's awesome Jaime, good for him!!
Yep, way to do work fellas. :appl::cheers:
Got mine too. Mentions because I applied online for an Oregon license for a 3 day guided trip on the John Day last month.
Yep, have done it, used a small genny and a set of halogen shop lights, had schools of jumpers on several occasions just of the pier at Stielacoom.
Odd hobby? I used to collect antique sewing machines!! Still have a few.
Cabelas and Bass Pro both carry fish cleaning tables with tall legs that are perfect height for my bad back, about 10 inches taller than my Costco...
Looks like "usual and accustomed practices" to me!!
Do you have a suspect??
I'd get a cleat and a couple of lag bolts and install your own cleat and take it when you leave.
It's called "foregone opportunity", which basically means if one group doesn't harvest their 50% share, the other group can claim foregone...
Now that's a fishing story!
Walk the floats on either side and you might find some matching gouges or scrapes on the guilty boat.
Keep in mind these are probably non-tribal commercial openings, tribes fish anytime they want.
Many of us have been down this road many times through the years, problem is the media outlets/news stations couldn't care less.
Blood stains = badges of honor!!
You have to be in it before you can quit!!!
GOOD NIGHT!!! I just pissed myself!! That is one gorgeous boat!!
Hey hey now, what'd I ever do to you??:-)
Sorry to hear it Terry, I know how much work you've put into this boat - good luck with the sale, should go quick!
No biggie Jeff, I'm sure you could find someone down there to build you something similar, your not too far from Bakersfield - my uncle lives in...
Holy resurrected thread Batman!! You didn't miss it Greg, it just is a couple years old!
No, I actually can't. Everything I build is one off...
Yep, I've had two PPP off during the drive from Westport to Aberdeen on a hot summer day when coastal temps are lower, like 65 in Westport and 90...
I guess I now have the answer to my question. How many rod holders does a guy need anyway? The answer is always the same - MORE!!
Holy shit, that's what I'm talkin about!! First trip with all the rod holders and still not an empty spot. That means either you guys have way...
At least they disconnected your fuel line, Mikes was cut cut clean off with the battery cables, good thing the battery was switched off, live...
Well damn that sucks. That's the bad part of secured storage yards, anyone with access can steal shit at their leisure.
Hope your insurance...
The day he sells the boat!!
It's good to have dreams and aspirations.
You are on the list!! It's a long and very distinguished list, but you are on it!!
After a couple alterations, went and visited with Vance, Limey, Goatram, Two Tap Pat and One Boot Mike and got Vance's other rod holder set...
I won't make it but I did have a nice chat with Carrie this evening while she was cleaning the boat - A+ Norm, sweet gal and cute as hell too!!
Float 12?? Oh shit, bring lube. Lots and lots of lube, the Westport 10s swing from the pilings down there!! A wetsuit might be a good idea....
Bruce Jenner/tranny - I see what you did there.
Know of any for sale?? I've heard of a nice World Cat rumored to be..
Great build, whether it costs the same as bought, you know every piece is exactly what and how you want it, can't get that any other way.
Need more specifics, what day are you planning to hit town? I have something for you and might be able to squeeze in something "extra" for you...
Dramamine works for me, I start taking it the evening before and another when I get up and again at the launch. Cheap and effective but you gotta...
Awesome service!! Nice that you have a kicker that can get you to tuna troll speed, I have yet to see that! That's the advantage of a 25HT over...
Trust me, it's not the tin boat, it's the sleeping in the bean bags out and back that has him spoiled!!
Damn you got lucky!! Keep a close watch tonight, they often will come back for it to finish the job!
Put a filter inline!!
I think Tops in Lacey sells remnants.
Glad to see the rotating stable of Arimas getting out on the water.
Do tell - we love long stories Greg!!
He was spawned out by that time!
But you got out for a day on the water, fresh meat for the grill and not too many fish to clean! I'd call that a success. How'd that top row of...
Always a good time and I love fishing with Erica, gotta' live a chick that can take truck loads of shit and dish it out just as good, I think I...
No time at all. I'm busier than a one legged man in an ass kicking contest!! I'm backed up into late fall early winter. But we'll get together...
It was pretty comfy!! Suck it in, you at least can still fit on one side. Me, not even close!!
In the corner against the pilot house out of the way. The barrel in the last pic is the bleed barrel that resides on the swim step, we washed it...
Built Mike a kill bag rack, he planned for it when having his boat built and had North River put tie down plates into the deck to strap it down....
He likes it that way. All day bait stops don't leave a whole lot of time for scrubbing decks!!
DONT DO IT DAN!!!!
You'll have that one for us July 17th!!
I'll get right on it!
We're not done yet - stay tuned!!
I vac pac my loins ASAP, important - DO NOT RINSE THEM OFF!! No water on them until just before grilling. I've grilled as much as a year maybe a...
Good for you!!! That makes it way easy to add whatever you want!
I'm sure yours are the same as CT's, I really don't like their factory rod holders!
I use pliers, but don't bring their head above the water surface and they usually lay there docile. As soon as their face breaks the water they...
Nope, still blank!
Absolutely, if you have the time, some guys need to get on the road when we hit the dock......just sayin'.
What a tank, that thing absolutely dwarfs the ones next to it!!
No pic or link for me either.
If they loin them for you in zip lock bags, just put them in a cooler with ice, no problem.
See? I told you fuckers that it was NOT 13 rod holders, it was partially 20 all along, there's a big difference. Thats my story anyway. That's...
I usually keep my fish whole and in an big Costco ice chest/s overnight in flake ice and process the next day. Partially frozen they are far...
Well with a dry weight of only 3,500lbs, but yeah - I'd like to see it in real life!
Yep, Stacey does roofs - samohr
I could get behind that project!!
HA!! She had a great time!! She's a sweetheart but she's a player down under!
I only type like that!! Filthy fingers, yep, and she's well aware of how demented I am, she liked these things and thought they were cute, much...
The clap trap on that hose hound has been so abused she'll never notice!
That's what I hear from her description!
When Laurence first saw them, especially the two he kept that are a bit more risqué all he could say was...
On second thought, the black permatex RTV is what I used also, from auto parts store - my memory needed a jolt!. On all my connections I paint...
That's what I use.
Stick with the 1 1/2", I built one from 1 1/2" OD tube, I prefer the full 2", or 1.9" pipe diameter.
Cannons are very easy to repair and rebuild, these Fish307 guys have every part you might need including motors.
I get all my Cannon parts at Fish307.com
He could probably find your lost contact lense with all that stuff!
You can get generic ones with a few rod holders online for under a grand. If you want something custom built for your boat with all the bells and...
Good God, can you even see out of the windows anymore? Or even need to???
I'm sure I could rig something up! I'm sure Mike wouldn't mind the TR1 that comes with it!
Looks like I know where to find everything you need Mike, one stop shopping!
Yeah, I'll get ahold of you tomorrow to discuss a couple of "options" I have in mind!!
No go on the 9,9, but I have an old oar I can give you. As for your kill bag rack, material is on order picking up tomorrow!
Yeah, very few welds on this one got the blending treatment, takes too damn long to blend them all. I think that one shown was...
As a matter of fact I already stole them from him and they're in progress. I took a picture of his boat so he'd know who took them!!
I'm starting to see them everywhere!!
Chris aka NW of the Brink sent me a PM last summer about buying a new Parker and the standard 6 rod holder set didn't seem enough, could we do...
What the hell kind of ad is that??
Yeah, so am I!!
If the trailer is no longer attached to the truck, you're good! I hear that's how those things go.
You bet, I am very happy with how it turned out, glad you are happy with it. I've had lots of positive comments on the bumper storage, that was a...
We had the sting operation all set to go before the ad disappeared, tweeker bastards. Somebody has got to put a stop to this shit, I still have...
Yes they can go bad, you need to check them at least once a year, preferably before you wear it each time. All it takes is a very slight leak at...
Wow, talk about a thread back from the dead!! Here's my flaring die, I had it turned from a stainless billet.
I've armed two for guys who'd been wearing them over a year and never bothered to look!!
With a kegerater!!
No kidding, plus backlog this time of year is silly. This is a winter project when you don't have to wait 2 months!
You guys were just admiring each other's rod holders!!
Finally!!! This has been like waiting for a momma elephant to give birth!! Good job man, here's to smooth sailing from here on out!:cheers:
Change as in quarters nickels and dimes? That's jacked up!! I hope you are rounding costs to the nearest $5 then.
Now I just need a reel that will hold 50 miles of line!
She stood there on the dock and watched us take out, never said a word.
Yeah, or a Gatorade bottle full of piss - you know who you are!!!!:D:D
What are you a fucking river guide or a waiter? You want a tip?? You calculate the split you get what you ask for. If you want more then ask...
Or make him clean and filet all the fish!
I don't mind it but it's not my call it's the boat owners call, however I've seen it quite often. Just be considerate is all I'm sayin.
Definitely a belt with pliers and a knife, I have a filet and bait knife on mine, forgot about that one Tommy!!
White Grundens - I'm out!! bieber

It doesn't belong to me?
He didn't have a trailer when we got there but he sat right in the middle of the turn around to back down the ramps totally jacking things up for...
Looks great, saw it down at Tom's yesterday.
No, you were right the first time with ballet - it's Vance after all!!
I have this same unit, you'll love it!
No fishing in PS means more fish in their nets on the rivers.
Goldfish? Perch? He didn't specify.
Glad it fit!!!
Garrett is good people, plus he can fish - pick him up quick!
A few months ago I started losing coolant, no idea where it was going. Then I started pouring heavy white smoke and I knew it was steam - EGR...
I replaced that exact model 5 years ago with a 90% efficient Carrier unit, it is really nice. My old Plus 90 had to be serviced every year in the...
Stacy's gelcoat might be slightly tinted with tuna blood and have a scale or two floating around in it, but it comes with lots of mojo!!
Also gotta' remember - and it's happened before - if we close our fishery, the tribes can claim "foregone opportunity" and claim our share and...
Jay - so that was your hull on the end when we were down there looking at Chasin' Tails boat, cripes that thing is HUGE!!!! Very nice man, very...
Definitely go with a certified tank builder!
Proper care starts at the gaff I say. Head shot, head shot, head shot!! Gaff shots to the body loins are a big no no if it can be helped! Those...

They are some very expensive screws, I am pretty sure I paid for a year of his kid's tuition!! I need to get into the surgical appliance...
I am REALLY looking forward to wiping my ass with my right hand again, I can do most things with my left hand but this is very awkward and...
I've alluded to my busted hand on a couple threads but a few brothers have asked what happened and how my hand is doing and when/if I'll be back...
Fahgedaboudit!! One man's solution is not for everyone!!
Our "Stewards Of The Resource" at work looking out for the welfare of the Earth and her wildlife. What a crock!!
No extra ice required, generally we fill the bags 1/2-3/4 full and fill the transom box with ice to slurry once on the grounds. If we manage our...
So you've met Sandy then!
I quit cut plugging years ago and use hoods now, much easier, no mess and lasts way longer!!
Yeah those high end Tacos run about $80 a piece, if clients want them they provide them, they are nice though!!
Could've squeezed three or four more on there, I space them between 6-8" apart. Looks great though, they do very nice work, quality all the way!
Thanks we were glad to have the time with him, he went fairly sudden when he went. Thankful he didn't suffer too badly.
Damn sure cant wait to see what replaces it!! Shouldn't last long i bet.
Damn sure wanted to be there but had a death in the family early that morning. Next time!
Yeah man, broke my hand, very next day had to have our dog put down after 15 years of love because her hind end gave out on her, and then pops...
Thanks Mike, not a hijack at all, it means a lot. Prayers to you and your wife bro, the brotherhood is strong!!!
When it rains it pours, bro!
Man I tell ya, bullshit is just like cancer or lightening - you just never know who, what or where it will strike!!
Ah damn, was hoping that splitter was for wood!!
That's awesome Kevin, congratulations!!
Well sooner than expected we lost him this morning. After some shed tears and lots of hugs the real work will begin - anybody want to buy a nice...
Harry at Tanglewild takes care of anything I can't.
Hit a railing behind me pull starting a cold blooded kicker, broke metatarsal in 5 pieces, most expensive trout ever caught!! Of course I went...
I've done a half dozen, not difficult at all. I'd give you hand but I don't have a hand to give for awhile!!
And a wiper delay!!
Need a crew member??
Below definitely. Drill into the aluminum frame and you'll no doubt crack the glass!! I've put in a few, not on a trophy specifically but it...
I will not switch to braid.
You bet, hit me back up and don't let me forget!
I would but I won't be able to get to it until early spring. My waiting list is long and I'm dealing with family issues that are taking all of my...
$3300??? Must've been one hell of a bump!!

Worst pirate I've ever seen!!
Nice, I like the toolbox!
I don't know anyplace up there, but if you're at all mechanically inclined, 9 times out of 10 it's just a carb cleaning. Generators sit for a...
Been there. Once.
He might have, but he'll never admit it!!
Yeah there's that down here too but not so much as the granola headed croc wearing hippie crowd looking to get baked. Downtown isn't my crowd but...
Awesome, glad you made it safe and sound, even with the extra effort. As for my Father-in-law, it's day by day, touch and go, thanks for asking...
Yup, it's the shit!!
Oh sorry, forgot what type of unsophisticated knuckle-dragging neanderthals hang out in here - it means weird shit!!!
TRUE THAT!!! And don't even think about picking up the local women unless you are into dreadlocks and unshaven armpits!!
And on "Thirsty Thursdays" the beer is pretty cheap too, but it packed in there.
Very true, always forget about them!
You can dock at Anthony's and walk over to the Budd Bay Cafe, great food and atmosphere but no darts or pool. Or pull all the way up to The...
If you can wait a week until I get back I'll come over and we'll get that thing out no problem!
My buddy Trent has a 7.3 in his 98 F250, it was better than gas but slow going over the pass pulling his boat until he bought an ATS turbo kit off...
Yep, never an issue running off the DR plugs. Pay no attention to that!!
I was with Vance and MM when they got your text, scary stuff for sure. Driving up and down I5 a lot I know the exact spot you're talking about...
Any idea where he could get them Kevin?? :D
That is really looking great!! How's the hand, all healed up?
Got it, after reading the original post I guess I misunderstood it.
If I were in his shoes and were offered the chance to buy it back I'd...
Two years after sale are you really responsible at all? Did you give a warranty?
You're the third person to mention this today, we will definitely do this!! Gotta' see how it compares to Duke's Chowder House.
Uh oh, what'd you do???
That's damn good to hear Charlie!!
I'd be in but I'm stuck down here in Pismo Beach for two weeks of sun and bikinis on the beach!
And gayest!! :gay::indabutt::supergay:
There is never anything bad about being cautious!!
That's exactly right. The boat we all fished on that this idea came from originally had a kill bag on each rail and they were very difficult to...
Yes I do but it will be quite awhile before I have the time, refer back to my "all projects on hold" thread....
Nice looking tower and rocket launchers, too! Just sayin'....
Looks great, way better now!!
Sorta, I guess they're close enough. Always good to say howdy to Homeless Hank in the morning!
Bathrooms!!! A decent shitter at the launch would be nice, heated seats, the plastic shitter boxes get pretty rough and cold at Hali time!!
Shit is getting very real, hitting way hard. In one week he went from normal to very lethargic, can't stay awake long, no appetite or energy,...
I would assume the CG is doing the investigation, wouldn't recovery be what they need to tie up the lose ends?
Yeah, what the hell??? Who's job is it then to recover a dead body?
There is a nice new 26' Raider sandwiched between a couple fancy sport yachts, looked very out of place!!
Sam Devlin's designs are all 30s era east coast flavored designs, he loves the classic lines of wooden boats of that era. Really cool, the...
Contained from now on anyway, hopefully.
Not a new boat either, tough spot to be between to Lifeproof, Ocean Sport and Pursuit next to them!
That's awesome, but they consider you a pretty damn great friend too obviously! I find it particularly sweet knowing how much you love bait...
Thanks doll, glad you're back home! Anytime I hear I will be fishing with you I know it will be a hilariously great time!!
You are ruined now!!
Glad you're liking the rocket launchers!! Yes please send me the video link!
They say bad things come in threes, right?? Two down - I'm being very careful these days!!
It's been crazy, my mom went through stage 1 breast cancer last summer, she called last Friday and told me my brother has stage 1 male breast...
Straight out of the package!!
My dog hates squirrels with a mad passion, I hate moles equally as much!!
Hey wait, what's this thread about again??
Thanks for the kind thoughts, we are very thankful that he is saved and has time to get his affairs in order, many do not get that. He is going...
We just got diagnosis on my father-in-law, stage 4 melanoma in his abdomen, spots on lungs, growth the size of a baseball intertwined with his...
Too much trouble with 40' Larry, just get an EcoCruiser!
Your search is over, you're welcome!
Early morning just before sun up is best at Chambers, they get serious lock jaw after the sun comes up!
Man, that's good news!!
As soon as it hits the dock, I'll have some shiny shit to add to it too!! Pimpin' Ain't Cheap!!
Running only non-ethanol fuel should make a huge difference on the clogged injectors. It takes very little crud to clog an injector. Great job so...
Beefy, I like it!! And a dually to go with it? Can't beat that bro, nice upgrade!!
Pimpin' ain't cheap!! Damn bro, that's a real mess. Hope it turns out good for you.
I laughed when they kept identifying chum salmon, in spawning colors no less as coho or silver salmon!! Who does their research anyway??
Watched the show all the way through, this is what Survivor should have been.
You can tell the suspicious birds because their eyes are too close together. Seriously though, we've caught fish under a single bird, but anytime...
The whole thing is a real bummer but glad to hear he was found and you have confirmation on your questions, not knowing would be the worst....
Damn, now that's a first use report I like to hear!! Good on you Tom, glad you were able to get out and get you some!
Works for me, nice boat ugly tower!
Welcome to BLOODYDECKS!! Great forum, you'll recognize a lot of the posters here. The rest of you will love these two, they are a kick to hang...
New kicker bracket? What is this of which you speak?? How's your tower holding up Jaime??
HA!! Mr. Dragonballs is being facetious with that comment - he'd like his project finished ASAP!! Free time is a luxury I haven't known for...
Oddly enough, I do have some coming up!!
I do have photobucket, maybe I'll put together a thread because you asked. I don't put anything on here that isn't for members, don't want to be...
No I don't, or I haven't I should say. If you have the hard top I could certainly build the legs/supports for it.
Awhile back Tom got ahold of me for eight rod holders after seeing Eli's. He rounded up the lighting, antennas and mounts and I set out to design...
Corrosion in wiring sucks, that shit wicks and runs several feet if you're lucky!
Always have a cigarette lighter in your tool bag for heat shrink! Unless you're working on the fuel sending unit, of course!! I carry liquid...

BAM!! Way to get 'er done, boys. And girl. See, I told you it's a baker's dozen, no bad mojo there! I like the pics through the rods in the...
Good Heavens, this is like waiting for a momma elephant to give birth!!
Awesome, glad to hear it!! I've seen first hand the amount of work going into that rig and glad to hear it is starting to pay off!! Now post up...
I think what he's trying to say is if you did this in a glass boat it would split in half and be at the bottom and you'd be swimming, so if you...
Four bolts and a shift rod pin is all it usually involves, so simple a caveman can do it. Get a new impeller and change it while your in there.
