    Boat Storage La Push

    Well I failed to obtain moorage so does anyone have a suggestion as to where I could safely store my boat out in that area? I'd like to make some quick weekend runs out there with the family without having to drag it back and forth. Figuring to keep it out there maybe mid to late April till...

    Max Size for Sekiu Launches

    I havnt fished Sekiu in several years and I want to start going again. Last time I did I still had my 20 footer. I know there are 2 launches and last I recall van ripers launch was pretty sketchy and Olson's a bit better. How big a boat can be launched there? Have the launches been upgraded in...

    Painting a Fiberglass Boat?

    Anyone ever painted a fiberglass boat as in over the gel coat? What is the degree of difficulty to get a good finish? And do you have any tips? The gelcoat on my grady is in need of a good buffing but I wouldn't mind mixing it up as the standard white and blue pinstriped grady white isn't...

    Shotguns for Kids

    I'm looking to get my kid into bird hunting. He's 11 now and I'm looking to get him a shotgun. I'm thinking starting out with a pump 20g and chasing upland birds. I started hunting ducks around age 13 with a 20g Ithaca 37. But the 20g 2-3/4 sucks for waterfowl so we will probably stick to...

    Acrylic Enclosure Project

    Season is slow so I will share my latest project. Canvas sucks for what I do and would have run me $5k+ so I made another acrylic enclosure. This is my second. I made one for the 25 GW sailfish I used to own and it worked out great so here is round 2. Hard to see but I left the finger prints and...

    WTB Raymarine e120/c120 mounting

    Figured I'd give this a shot first before I buy online. Looking for the mount for one of these units I believe they're called a trunnion.

    Lowrance elite, raymarine dragonfly, hummingbird helix?

    Anyone running one of these units? I was checking them out and they appear to be solid units for the price range. I have am aging raymarine e120 and all 3 seem to be a significant upgrade. I figure I'll keep the e120 hooked up for radar and might throw one of these units on for sonar and gps...

    Anyone Running to Oregon soon?

    Anyone running down that way in the near future that would be willing to transport some canvas curtains to a brother from Oregon? @No Bail bought my canvas and presumably will meet you somewhere down there at your convenience. Payment is already taken care of.

    Canvas Curtains Set for GW

    I have a set of canvas and eisenglass curtains that came off a GW marlin. These appear to be virtually unused but have been rolled up. They are in great condition and could presumably be fitted to other boats with some modifications. These probaby cost several thousand to have made. $300...

    Saltwater Squid Never Sleep

    Solid Squid outing tonight at redondo. My son, who usually drives the pontoon during the launch and retrieve couldn't make it so my wife had to drive which provided entertainment for those on the dock. If you were there you know... Squidding started out on fire and we were on this school until...

    Another Handle Retired

    Decided it is time to retire "clockwork". The boat was sold over a year ago and with it should have died the name. I will be renaming the boat as well. Dont worry though I will be providing the same level of value as I always have around here but with a cooler name. Carry on.
