    temporary tower/bench setup on 2310

    2005 Parker 2310. While I wait to get my bench tower installed by pacific yacht towers later this Fall, I'd like some sort of temporary bench up there. I'd like to avoid drilling holes since it would be temporary. Does anyone have any ideas?

    Offshore BFT northwest of 43

    BFT are northwest / west of the 43. Breezers and boiling, couldn't buy a bite. Tried poppers and colt snipers. Poppers kinda sucked we couldn't cast them far enough. Most of the time school would push down before we got close enough. Seemed to be common theme but some did well. We gave up...

    Rust on trim tabs

    Pulled my 2310 after 3 months in a slip for 100 hr service. The bottom paint held up well, but trim tabs did not. I am thinking I need anodes on the trim tabs? Would that prevent this rust? The rust is by the screws in the back and hinges. The other stuff is growth, also annoying, can I paint...

    Fishing the 302/371 and avoiding 12mile radius of Coronado Island

    quick question for anyone...I understand the requirement to have FMM and conservation passport while within 12 miles of Coronado island. Annoying but whatever.

    Penn 50VISX spool wobble

    I don't want to bash the online seller (not direct from Penn), because I want to give them a chance to sort this out. Upon receiving the reel I noticed the spool wobbles.
