    Any advise on installation? Specifically the floor and gunnel mounts on a glass boat. I'm looking at the discovery bay puller. Thanks.

    I agree. A little slower but can pull heavier pots

    Here are some pics of my setup. The bottom part is just screwed into the floor. On Parkers this is not an issue because there is wood so I just made sure it was sealed well. I'm not sure how that works on a defiance.

    For the upper mount I used some 1/4" thick stainless and made a bracket that ties into the upright for the gunnel. I also used some starboard to spread the load a bit.

    I use the Ladner pots not the Ladner Like POSs that some sell from China. Discovery Bay did stand behind them. I upgraded to the big boy after he explained that. Cost me another $100.

    Side note don't pull on the rope to help it go faster. It might help it die faster.

    Thanks John. Big Ladners are on the list. I'm looking at the My-T-Pullers too. Just fed up with struggling with the light duty pullers to haul gear.

    Fred,

    Have been a fan of the Safe-T-Puller (owned one for 9-years) and now the My-T-Puller. Good stuff from another local manufacturer. Robert at Quality Products stands behind his products.

    Good advice from Gary ... get the biggest motor available.

    Fred,my advice is consistent when these threads come up. Quick Catch pot puller. Takes a bit of fab to adapt it to a pole but they are the toughest fastest electrics a available. Rated to 200#. I run commercial crab pots with it no problem. I have been running one for shrimp and crab the last 12 years now without issue.

    I've been very happy with my My-T-Hauler. Install is virtually same as Eli shows. My boat is tin, so it wasn't an issue fastening things. Just be sure to run sufficient power to the device. Also make sure to mount your power connection/footswitch in a convenient space. I fabbed a plate and mounted mine under the gunnel.

    And if you ever had to pull by hand for some reason, the davit/pulley would be pretty handy.
