    Replace fresh-air vents?

    My only guess is that since they were building way more inboards than outboards at the time, the holes for the vents were incorporated into the layup mold for the cap. There’s nothing up inside the gunnels, except wiring and steering hoses.

    Anyone else see this article on lost crab pots?

    Roughly 220,000 Puget Sound sport crab endorsement cards are sold annually. 12,000 is only 5% of that, assuming only 1 pot/card. WAY lower when you factor-in the tribal pots. 12,000 doesn’t seem too out of the realm of possibility, considering the typical novice.

    Stackable Ladner Shrimp Pots

    Ladners are definitely Canadian. I thought Kufa was as well, but maybe they're imported too. The Kufa office is in Canada, but that doesn't mean they're not importing from China, I guess. Still, separate from BeauMac/SMI, who is located in Sumner, WA. If the Kufa is imported, it's possible...

    Stackable Ladner Shrimp Pots

    Great Starter Boat - Does it All

    Crabbing-When Does the Other Shoe Drop?

    Crabbing-When Does the Other Shoe Drop?

    To pile-on, if you forget to report at the end of the Summer that you didn't/couldn't participate in the Puget Sound Crab fishery, they'll tack-on an additional $10 non-reporting fee to your license purchase next year.

    I think this Blue Friday business has gone too far!

    Maybe you should start another boat project, to ease those Winter doldrums. FWIW, I've never gotten-into trends such as dressing in-support of a pro-team. Not since high school, have I worn a team's logo/mascot.

    Tuna live bait pinning reel that doesn't twist line?

    Make sure the roller bearing is still spinning. This is the roller, where the line comes over the bail arm. This roller helps reduce line twist. I've set-up quite a few guys with Quantum Boca and Cabo series spinning reels. A friend of mine is in his third season of commercial tuna fishing...
