    Strange things happen

    Nice Gig ya got there, doing what ya love! Now just got to figure out how to get the Pathy on the bow for the Bahama's trip!
  5. When I replaced my tank in my bay boat I asked multiple individuals with many years in the boat business if I should coat the tank. Many said no because if it has one area that is not sealed or gets scratched then water will creep under the coating and cause corrosion to occur at a more rapid rate. Others said if you coat it make sure it is a quality type sealer or finish that is tough but the cost for such a finish is excessive. But most said to leave it as is and do not use foam to hold in the tank in and keep it raised off its base to allow air to get under and keep it dry. This is what I did. My bay boat was easy to replace the tank. We discussed it in a previous topic.
  6. You will probably find no manufacturer doing that process because of cost. I think it is a combination of using thinner aluminum and probably Chinese aluminum to boot is probably a main contributor. I would hate to think a manufacturer is still foaming in aluminum tanks knowing the issue that it causes. Let alone not providing access for replacement knowing that tank failures are an issue.
  7. I saw this and thought it was pretty cool, only fishermen will get it so I just thought I would share. I know this is not a targeted species of ours but it is still pretty cool.

    ISO of 70’s style poling platform

    Nice ride! I posted something about the original poling platform on Hewes boats, and how they came up with the idea but when the upgraded the website that info does not show up anymore.

    Just a little history; the poling platform did not make it on a Hewes boat until 75/76, before that they stood on the cowling. The original platform had no fancy radius's, just straight pipe and they had a unique clamp style type holder that attached it to the transom. Here is a link on this site for an original platform........ You cannot see the mounting system though, but this is an original Hewes poling platform. I have pictures of the mounting system, and the whole platform for that fact, on a old hard drive I need to access so when I do I will post it.

    Do You Use a Secret Sauce?

    Amen brother, my thoughts exactly! Thank you.

    Just so you know, or may already know, that is not an original "70's" style platform. I think the guy who made them is actually still alive and living somewhere on the East Coast. I know "Mother Ocean" in Key Largo has a 90's style platform for sale, just saw it on Thursday. I will keep an eye out for ya!

    Do You Use a Secret Sauce?

    Well thank you Doctor BigDave! Your diagnosis makes perfect sense, we work soft plastics slower so I can see where a fish, including the elusive catfish can follow the scent trail to the bait. Where as a crankbait causes a reaction bite that any fish will turn on, no time to take a whiff! I know The Outlaw is not talking but do you guys use it, or is it a "can't hurt" type of thing if you do use it?
