"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

and bought a separate boat for cattin.

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.

    • You can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
    • whats a samsquatch?  lol
    • Nope....don't need friendseyeguy54..... It was a darn samsquatch!
    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
