    How much anchor rode?

    I get it... if 600 feet is good, 625 feet is better. Unfortunately, I don't know how much rode will fit in the locker until it's in the locker. Maybe it'll take 500, maybe it takes 250. I was hoping for a "usable minimum" to get an idea of where I need to start. Thanks everyone for their input!

    How much anchor rode?

    I think we're damn near neighbors, actually. I've been paying for an empty slip down there for some time. Been moved around a bit...I am now paying for 142. Hope to be back by July 4, if not Father's day. It's been a LOOONNNNGGGGGGG repower and rewire project ;)

    How much anchor rode?

    29 Phoenix slipped at Seaworld in Mission Bay. Good Windlass--I will use 8 plait rode. I figured at least 30' of chain, possibly 45. Current anchor is a Fortress, might look into a Delta style later. I see San Clemente in my future...not sure where else. Thanks!

    From what I've read, since tuna can regulate their body temperature, when they're placed in an ice bath, the will shiver. This is what causes burn in the meat. This is the reason for running the wire down their spine, to kill any nerves thus preventing the shiver. Now, pack with ice.

    Raymarine st8000 I have an RV-50 Hynautic reservoir and an accusteer HRP16-12 pump. Does the pump take place of the reservoir? If not, do I "T" into the lines before or after the reservoir? I'm guessing the nylon lines need to be replaced with higher psi hose? Thank you! Jeff

    Allstar boat trailers... who deals with them?

    Some time ago, i saw a post where somebody had aluminum trailers for sale here. The name on the trailer was Allstar. I've since bought a trailer from all star and I've got problems with it but all star will not return my phone calls. Any help is appreciated. Jeff

    For the record, I think the OP is literally insane for going on a boat with 72 people. Where does one draw the line? If someone steals your fishing gear and you happen to see a fellow fisherman using it does he get a pass because "us fishermen need to stick together?" Nobody asked a sport...
