Eel won't be ready until at least mid to late next week - crossed fingers that we don't get another storm by then...

Dibs on one of them :)  Will the new 8" hatch have the bag/bucket option?

     Might as well get them up there while I can.. at least you'd have time to rig it, put in the water to familiarize how it operates compared to what you have.        I'd be halfway there sunday morning.    Hate driving up twice... it's 3 hrs just to Bodega.       
    Pouring down rain again even now !

   Are you referring to that   12 x 16" interior storage pod ?

I have something a little different in mind, but that will work (especially since I have it already :]).  That storage pod is ginormous!

Outstanding - I love the can-do attitude!

I'm busy with a big tour Friday afternoon through Sunday morning.  If you come up here this Sunday we'll get on the water somewhere - crabbing Humboldt Bay is likely a good option, and we may be able to hit Trinidad or Shelter Cove.  Keep in touch about it.

That ring is nice, soft and quality seems very good, should be water tight if it fits.  Probably need to check the inside diameter with Jim.

   Soft ?    LOL....     It's a hard fiberglass part. " Rock hard baby...     

  Yes, it's the same diameter as the 8" Hobie hatch ring.  I know this because a friend in Ft Worth put a Hobie hatch in his Raptor...
