I'm building a new propstick and was wondering if anyone has pictures to post of a propstick that can be dismantled.

Thanks

What do you mean by "dismantled"? Do you mean taken off the side of the boat easily, or do you mean taken apart after being used? If you mean the latter.........why would you want to take it apart after using it?

Mine fits nicely into a detachable Scotty rod holder:

I built mine so I can easily hang it on either side of the boat, and can adjust the hook height if necessary.  I can also take out the clevis pins and break it down so that it is easier to store.  Since these pics were taken I have taken off the 1/2" uprights and replaced with 1 1/2", but the general design is still the same.

Seanile & bdhfarmboy, thank you for the pictures.  This gives me a better idea on how to setup my propstick for ease of storage.

bdhfarmboy, with so many holes you you worry about the pvc cracking and/or breaking under the stress of the trotline?

dfran, for ease of storage only.  My propsticks in the past, although worked very well while running the line, were a bit cumbersome to store either at home, truck or the boat.

I use a Scotty rod holder as well. I am hopefully getting a boat welded up and will weld a plate in that will let me adjust one I make from aluminum pipe and a boat roller.

If your looking for something stonger and can weld a little, I can email you pictures of the roller setup for my boat.  It's all alluminum angle and slides in to a flat plate mount that we made for the inside wall of the boat.  The entire roller is only around 10lbs and lifts off in about one second.  

I don't use it much anymore since we made the auto dipper for the boat.  It's also quick detachable.  I can take it off of the boat in less than a minute.  If you take the time when making something like this to make it right, you will enjoy it far more and far longer.

Exactly.  A half a$$ set up only leads to problems.  It'll cut your trip short when it fails and it'll probably be during your best crabbing day.

Make everything sturdy and do it RIGHT.  Its nice going out and not having to worry about your stuff holding up.

Over the years I've learned to bring a backup prop stick.  No matter how well its made and/or how sturdy it is, the prop stick may still be pron to failures.

The only way that one would tear up is if you dropped it overboard. Wink

Thats great. 

I have avoided drilling into the boat by making a new prop stick out of 1 1/2 pvc.

bri1967 hit the nail on the head, if it can break/foul it will.  I got burned a few times and and always bring 2 propsicks.
