I just use a 250 gallon rubbermaid container. I think they are available at TSC. I use about 55 gallons of sea water and a aerator from petsmart. I have had nearly 80 peelers at a time in it.
55 gallon stock tanks work great. And they are cheap, last forever.

OK Ray i understand. Iwant to dip myself and thats why i will move the console back a little. this set up will also work if i get the dipper. i want to do as much as possible myself.

You will love a dipper.  And you'll laugh at the crabs dropping in for at least 3 weeks.

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

I need to build a new propstick end. My line has almost worn thru my PVC fittings. I may try to build it out of 2" copper this time. When copper starts wearing, soldier is a quick easy rebuild on it.

It'll probabably get stolen.  And it will probably wear faster then PVC.

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.....

for the price of copper now a days, you can pay someone to build you one out of SS and still pay less......and never have to repair it for many many years.

I'm kicking around the idea of building a boat.  
Me too, It will be my third   The hardest part of boat building for me  is breaking the news to the wife.
I am 60% sure that I will build this Sam Devlin boat "Mille Hill"  (just bought the plans)   Would like to build this 27' dory.  I built it's little sister (16' san juan dory 5 years ago  Still crab and fish out of her.   ( but this might be too much to handle)              But still looking at other plans and boat style's

I'd like to try to build a small day sailer.  Been talking about each winter for 10 years.  Might be the winter cause I'm bored and have no other projects... Undecided

Jack, I am sure you can find a small day sailer for a song and fix it up  But there is nothing like building your own boat. If you go to the dark side  Wink       Reseach, Reseach, There is so much help and plans out there in internet land.  But I warn you it is addictive.  As soon as you start you will be planning the next one in your head Grin I almost built The Jimmy Skiff from CLC    http://jimmyskiff.blogspot.com   but built the San Juan dory instead  wanted a larger boat. Which turn out to be heavier, needs a trailer ect, might have been nice to have a car topper skiff for those  back waters no one can get to. So I could crab by myself    Maybe I will build it this year Grin  IT IS ADDICTIVE Grin
