Pack up for our move to Florida and try to get a FL commercial license.  Install a new plotter and radar on my boat.
                Sounds great to me!

That's always a possibility. When it is not in use it comes totally free from the boat and lays down inside the boat or truck pretty well. I wonder if there is somewhere I could find out the abrasion difference between PVC and copper. When I was a kid, we used a 2"copper slide that held up for about 8 years. It had a bunch of soldier on it but it was also made out of DWV and not K or L copper which is what I was considering.....
                                  Good luck with both!

Ray,
       I thought you were going to sell your big boat?

Ray,
       I thought you were going to sell your big boat?

I want to but due to recent events and predictions of future ones, I just might be a crab potter again.  I may have an opportunity to buy a friend's 1000 pot rig. Plus, the first time I advertised it, I was more into just testing the waters.  I have a 33' hull thats nice and wide Im considering starting on, if I do, I would have to sell the boat in order to put a diesel in the 33.

I forgot to mention I am going to add a full keel to her also.

Ray, How many pots can you fish on a good day? Just wondering.....

Last year a friend of mine's boat broke down so I ran mine for him.  We wasted time finding rows of pots, half of the pots were in 25' of water, and we got 31 bushels.  But we managed to run about 450 by about 11:00 am.  If all the pots were in 10-15' we coulda rolled. 

So given that I had two shakers who could switch in and out, I think I could do 900 in a long day.

Do you have a winter crabbing project for this year?

Mine is to outfit my pontoon boat with a propstick so I can run trotlines this year.
[/quot

  You must be doing that for Del. Two 150 ft.ers with your water depths where you keep the pontoon in
   NJ will be very tricky. "good luck" !!!

Interestingly enough Ron,we found using our pontoon boat to run a trotline very difficult,so we bought a Skiff.What size is yours ? I did talk to one of my Amish neighbors who uses his pontoon successfully,I'll be curious to see how it works out,and hopefully be your dipper a few times

Mine is an 18 footer.     I think I have a design that will work, but like anything, I am sure it will need fine tuning once the operation begins.

We had problems with ours Ron,but I think it was partially us ,and the lack of working area,and the boat was too high out of the water.Al (Shedking) took me trotlining to show me how to do it,so hopefully next year I'll be better at it.Good luck to you with yours.

My boat is pretty open on the helm side and there is a door that can be opened there to give more flexibility to reach the water...

Have to rewire the lights on the jetboat.  Saltwater isnt too nice to them.  Redesign and build a new propstick.  Also pour a bunch of jigheads and spoons for fishing.

Gonna go get a roll of pot wire and build 5 2x2x2 holding pots (no pallor). Don't have any old pots to use this coming season. Was going to get Marshall's to build them but I'm bored.  If that works out OK, maybe I'll get a roll of peeler pot wire.  I do need 10 new peeler pots. Roll Eyes
