Ideas please.

Having used Min-y-Mor 3 times now, I have identified the urgent improvements that need doing. Number 1) A bait tank which will be installed once I have a deck-wash pump installed which will be achieved with Martin's help. 2) Rod storage. This is the most urgent as it is very difficult keeping them anywhere they are not in the way. The obvious answer is a stainless rack on the roof but, at present, I can get under the two bridges without having to wait for them to lift but at high springs, it is tight. If I add a stainless rail and rack it will mean waiting for bridges so I would like to install one that folds down thus solving the problem. Where do I get one from or get one especially made, there is the rub!

 

Discuss and make suggestions please.

I have used Stainless Steel Steve in the past. 01590 674988.

 

He specialises in Marine Stainless Steel Engineering. He is based at Lymington and his website is currently under construction.

 

I am sure others will give you their contacts.

I have used Robton Engineering as well. They made a special rail for the back of my Quicksilver Pilothouse to take rod holders.

 

The work was excellent but took nearly three months to make the item as they were very busy at the time. 

 

I suggest wherever you go Terry,  you ask them to give you a realistic lead in time for manufacture.

 

I would certainly recommend them as well.

Stainless Steve from Sway, his web site has been under construction for a couple of years now. I bet it’s going to be good. I’ve heard many great things about the guys work, unfortunately he doesn’t ever answer his phone or emails. I gave up trying, so I will never sample his goods.

Update. Stainless rod holders mounted on the side overhang of the wheelhouse roof which gives me storage for 8 rods and doesn't affect the overall height, should be enough for two! Bait tank sorted thanks to Martin who just happened to have one about his person and, pro tem, I am going to use a small bilge pump hurled over the stern when stationary with the outlet pouring out over the transom. At some stage I will get round to fitting a deck wash pump but that may wait until the season is finished, no point in wasting good fishing time.

 

A little cruise next week to Yarmouth (IOW not Norfolk) with Dilys and number 1 daughter with a nice lunch thrown in. Might have time on the way back for a mackerel or three.

well done Terry [and Martin] I have used that system of a pump over the side a lot Terry , but got fed up with chopping the pumps off when we forgot to bring it onboard.

 

I now use a tee off of the deckwash system, via a larger diameter pipe and plastic valve it gives a good volume of water to the blue drum, without too much back pressure on the pump.
