Re: Financing from abroad

I would get an AK address, focus on you past experiences fishing in Ak, and write an additional letter of explanation stating that u were abroad for education and would like to return home to engage in you commercial fishing business again.

Re: washdown/dewatering pump

I'm leaning toward installing a similar system to my last boat. I have a rule general wash down that I will reduce from 1 1/2 down to two 3/4 inch deck hoses for rinsing fish. For dewatering and circulating slush I will use a "pump on a stick" rule 3500 to put in the slush bags. At a later...

washdown/dewatering pump

I'm looking for recommendations for a large (probably hydraulic) washdown and emergency dewatering pump. I'd like to possibly use the pump to ciculate or pump out my slush system. I have a small thru hull that I'm going to use for a small 12v rinse pump. But I want a powerful sucker to move lots of ...

Re: Chain length on Stabilizers

Can you post a pic of Lulu? Monk designs are one of the best. I enjoy seeing wood, glass, and metal boats fabricated by the same designer.

Re: Chain length on Stabilizers

U have 40 foot steel boat, right?
Assuming your rigging and stays are stout u could probably use 1/2. 3/8 has 6600# breaking strength. Spliced and knots reduce the load limit.

Re: Chain length on Stabilizers

I'm rigging my new boat with spectra (also called spectron or dyneema or kevlar) line to the staybies. 1/4 is 6000 pound breaking strength.

Re: electrical/voltage text book

The 51 page chapter in this book focuses on air conditioning and galley refrigeration. I guess some of the info could apply to the industrial systems on our vessels.

electrical/voltage text book

I recommend: m[/url] This book combined with the meter that I recommended should get the boat part of the fishing equation pointed in the correct direction. Based on my experience I believe that if a boat has a serious electrical problem it can effect other boats. This can happen at the dock where a...

@cfoot in response to your posted picture. U really want to support the pole tips when they are down in the fishing position. The poles need 2 supports at the tip. They are called a "forestay" and "tip haul up line." The "forestay" runs toward the bow to oppose the aft ...
