You mind asking Chuck how much his business has increased due to this site, and how he would feel if the site were to just disappear?

Isn't that the whole discussion?  The impact the website has had on crabbing certain areas?  I, for one, never even heard of his charters until they were brought up here....  Undecided

Actually if you are referring to boat rental business at Schnaitmans it's DEFINITELY not as busy as it was 30 years ago. They had at least 3 or 4 times as many boats 30 years ago. They were all rented every Sat. and every Sun. many of them twice a day. We always rented our boats the day before we were going out, we loaded them with all our gear, including motors. Than Chuck's cousins that worked there tied them to the stakes in the water out from the dock. When we got to the dock in the morning at 5:00 or so there were 50-75 people in lawn chairs waiting in line for 6:00 when they opened. Back then the white boats were $18 for the day, $20 if you reserved them the night before. There were no boats with motors to rent, only grey boats and white boats depending on the HP of the motor you were using. Any motor 10HP or larger needed a white boat.

When you brought a boat back at noon there were people on a waiting list to take it out. As far as Chuck's wholesale business, that's the same as it's always been. He was always sold out of crabs every day and he still is.

I was refering to the amount of crabs caught and kept but yes, i guess it can be included in this but i meant it would turn into a split discussion/arguement.

Me neither, Jack.......so, that should tell you that this site, infact, does have a significant impact on our regional crabbing. Some good, some bad.

Dfran,
I dont have Chuck's books in front of me, so I cant contest your claim.

I actually think there were more trucks with trailers back then. I never counted them but I think they were lined up farther than they are now.

Chuck's books from back then wouldn't do you any good. Chuck didn't really have anything to do with the rental business. Charlie, Chucks Dad ran the rental business and chuck ran the wholesale business. He also had a sluffing operation set up at the end of his dock where he docks his boat. His dad and him had a huge sluffing operation in the room where they steam crabs at now. Don't know what ever happened to that set up, it was there one year and gone the next. Back them Chuck had quite a few commercial crabbers supplying him. I'd guess he was buying from 20-25 crabbers. Back then #1's were $15-$18 a bushel #2's were $12 and females were $6.

Do you guys really think that this forum is responsible for all of the crabbers out on the water?

That's like saying that no one would be crabbing is this site didn't exist. Same holds true for the fishing forums.

People are out there crabbing because they like doing it, not because of this website. There were a lot of people crabbing before this website (or the Internet) existed. Case in point: Schnaitman's. Talk to them and they'll tell you that they had people lined up at the door to rent boats long before the Internet existed.
