I read some old posts about you pulling the Skippy 28 fuel tank, only to find it was ok. Why did you pull it? Just to be proactive?
I have a 1975 Skipjack 28, fuel tank made by Berry Sheet metal. It. seems fine. But I wonder.
Now, the 1991 Wilson, with twin saddle tanks outboard of the central fish holds, are sucking water into them, through the rotten, waterlogged foam.
Hi John, the reason we use quick release clips on our kite leaders is that the crew often changes the kite bait when your turn comes up... they may say, put on a single hook rig for a flying fish, or go to a double trouble etc... if you are not ready, they will put the next guy out.. they want guys to be prepared when they are on deck.. at times, the kite can go off full speed..
Did you ask me if I had any original Mildrum Carboloy Spin guides a while ago?? I think you did, and I said I'd get back to you...
It's the shits having an old brain AND body!! I'm still looking for a nice D8. Sold most of mine before a divorce, many a year ago!
Saw you posted in the rod building forum re the RCJB96XH. How do you like it? I'm considering having one built as a 50-60 bait rod, but wasnt sure whether you've found the action too fast to really feel the bait. I have a US Predator 80 for my 60lb outfit and like it, but would rather not shell out that kind of money for another one.
a lot of people talking about buying them, I'll buy them if no one has actually paid for them. let me know, I'll pay you PayPal today. cheers, but you gotta shit it to carnation washington please and thank you.
