"Clean Our Boat"

15 posts in this topic

{Subject} = Words a catfisherman never wants to hear from the better half. Been doing it all week it seems like. The Sturgeon slime from this spring is holding on nicely. The catfish slime makes nice icing. Cut bait is deep into the carpets.

Plenty of those helicopter tree seeds to plug the vacuum.

The scum ring (water line) around the outside is painted on, and the nose mud was thick.

Oh, the wife wants to go recreationing on Friday with another couple so it needs to be spotless and smell-free.

I have been doing the same thing, so mine does not look like a pig nest at the KOTC GT.

Good luck Friday Tyler.

I clean mine weekly so when the wife wants to go, it doesn't look and smell like a pig-pen.

It's a proven fact that you catch more fish with a slimy boat.

I cleaned up the big boat last week and bought a separate boat for cattin. Now the wife can't complain about slime and smelliness on "our" boat, since we have "our" boat and "my" boat smile

You suppose she'd let me build another stall on the garage too? Double deep for gear and/or leaving the truck hooked up?

"My" boat has not been fully accepted as an inalienable member of our family yet, so it is still not in any way considered "our" boat. It's an old beat to cr@p eyesore, but I keep it clean. I don't have carpet so it's easy enough to tip it up and hose it out in the driveway or at the DIY car wash if it's really nasty.

I'm not squeamish at all when it comes to fish slime or bait that has been simmered in the sun for too long. I just don't see any reason to wallow in those things.

Dude, why not put doors on both ends so you can just pull through, too? grin No more backing the boat into the garage!

I did that and it works slick when I do use that stall.

Brilliant idea Ralph, I was thinking the same thing at the DIY car wash.

While you are at it, add a floor drain and spray hose.

True grin

I will add though, I have been selling a lot of stuff this summer so far. I took a personal inventory and anything I have not used in more than a years or two, or could live with out has been going.

I would rather have a roll of cash in my pocket, than walking around stuff I do not need. This also goes for the stuff in my personal Junk yard grin.

I will add, the back door is on my car hoist stall. I can pull truck in and then boat. Unhook boat and raise trailer and boat at the same time to do wheel bearing pack.

I need to put some new bunks on my trailer and I have been thinking about raising the boat off the trailer with the car hoist, so I could pull trailer out from under boat. I might be doing this in the next couple weeks and will be sure to get some images.

Use BAM cleaner with bleach in it to get the water line off the boat, works wonder's when running in stand water. Spray on wipe off but don''t get on your carpet.

    • Seen on the channel 5 news the other night, plans to remove a dam in River Falls. They didn't specify which dam, or if it would be both dams. The movement is gaining popularity, especially with residents. And more input meetings will be planned. However, if the project is ok'd, it doesn't sound like it will be in the near future. I'm all for the dam removal! Both of them!
    • Hey Dave, I am sorry to hear that. If you need anything you have my number.  Send me a PM or text and let me know whats going on. Recurring infection? Low blood supply?     
    • Yes. But he has a great plan to utilize the excess rail capacity in the country by relocating those who disagree with him. It's gonna be a real gas. 
    • 100% A-OK is how that's working out, but I'm not surprised by the continued confusion. Even beside Texas vs Johnson, the idea of stripping citizenship from people hasn't stood up in court.
    • You must have been on some sh*tty ice for it to do that... Love my heavy spud bar, if it doesn't go through in a couple wacks I feel pretty darn confident in stepping...Spud bar,picks,pfd,rope, common sense all ya need
    • Protecting the rights of the id-oits, for the purpose of teaching others how not to be an id-iot is paramount. It goes both ways.........
    • What? You don't like the 1st amendment?
    • there is a seat belt law, why not have a ice picks law? if you are caught out ice fishing before the 1st of the year without picks, you get a "stupid" ticket.
    • So burning a Quran, or pouring bacon grease on it must be protected as well?  And flying the Stars and Bars?  How is that working out?
