Talk about tight wrap

So needed to get under hull to replace thru hull transducer for sounder .so low tide walked the beach
Found a creek and measured off bow to access spot, stakes driven in beach , waited for tide and parked it over creek. Then the fun crawling under laying in creek to inserts transducer. Even in chest waders got little wet , but all was lined up and done in minutes. Another day of boating.

Is that a lead line that was wrapped on the shaft ?

Your pix remind me of reading the book African Queen. Building a fire and heating a shaft. Trying to pound it straight.

Hard work you have there !

Never know what's next.
I never worked on a tender, but fished seine in Kodiak, as well as halibut in the derby days.
Also halibut, rockfish in the real ocean, (gulf), and herring in southeast.
Man, the work and stories.......
Glad you are making bank. Be safe.


Made it almost 3 years without censor!

Thanks for the posts, I was Stationed on Kodiak in 85-86 (worked at the cannery's on my days off offloading and processing Halibut) . Hated being in the hold running the suction tube on a herring day, only did that once. I am enjoying the pictures and memory's

I have followed past post on your salmon fishing. I enjoy the photos and posts.Thanks for taking the time to share it.Never done any commercial fishing although I have a friend who is a retired commercial fishermen. I did go with him non commercial fishing a couple times. He sure knew how to fish. It seems some have it and others not so much.
