Re: beautiful wkend

Looks like you had a good trip. Did you see any hogfish? We have good luck with the this time of year.

Keep the pics coming....I had surgery on my wrist today, and will be dry for a couple of months.

I would rath...

Re: buoy weights

The lead will go SOLID quick but hold the heat for a long time. The sand the pvc is buried in will help hold the shape. The pvc does get soft and well distort if not supported.

Re: Trailer bunk ???

Thanks for the suggestions. I'm planning on going to a solid bunk. I looked around for cypress, but can only come up with PT pine in 2''x12''x16'. Does the HPDE make the bunks easy to load and unload? I have used silicone spay on the bunks of my skiffs for years and it makes life much easier. Tony
