Feels like a big ling on a plastic gripper could death-roll it outta your hand.
I have not had that experience, and practically always land my lings with it unless they are gaffed.  Once locked in place you have leverage on that fish.  The small pinchers on a boga grip type always makes me think they do more harm to fish when clamped.

at the rear hatch, on both left and right sides, your lines housed in tubes and tucked up under in a pad eye.  I've seen them just be criss crossed as they are bundeled in there, and easily you can pull them out and put them in one by one again and feel the lines working properly again.  Or if you had some line replaced at some point, it could have been wrapped around another when replaced and need to be re-routed.  I've resorted to taking video with my phone to look up under there and figure things out.

Looking forward to seeing some Doormats again this year! All signed up, sweet you at the Tourney.
That was the best ever lineup of giant fish to win a tournament.  Lets see another set of huge fish this year  :smt003

Hah that is so awesome!  :smt005  Fun day accomplished!    :smt006


I'd say that tape is suspect.  Welcome to the club  :smt003  :smt006  :smt005

With the trampolines it shouldn't fully collapse if the shearpin breaks.

On the into to sailing course we noticed at least 4 dead pelicans floating in the water, and the trainer was mentioning they have been seeing a lot of them recently  :smt009

Not sure if they’re all designed alike but seems like extra pins is a good idea
Pin's are made to break away and there are spares on each aka and rear support bar.

Wouldn't miss it!  :smt003

Just curious, what is your estimation on time to complete the course once you start? 

They may not be salmon, lingcod or rockfish, but they are super fun to catch those Bullards kokanee. It was a lot of fun fishing with many other koke stoked fisherman on the beautiful waters of Bullards Bar. One could do with less blood suckers and lake lice, but being with other NCKA'ers makes it too much fun you forget about them quickly.  Arrived Friday and was greeted by Brian and Kevin at the camp ground and got setup then we all had an afternoon session.  I lost a few bites and then after switching rigs I landed one!  It was as excited as I was and was happily returned to the water after a quick shot. The next day it was game on and bit was hard to find in the early morning.  After getting two it took several hours of trolling to get another bite.  On the far side of the lake (or wherever I was) I was getting waked by two joy riding boats at the same time just after I set my DR.  i look back and the rod had popped the clip, and I was thinking the wake fowled my set out, but no there was actually a 13" koke on my rod  :smt005 From there I picked up 4 more and it was an hour left before the end. I tried to pickup three more, telling myself I can get two double hookups by the time I"m back to the launch, but I had left the fish got no more bites.  I stayed another day at Schoolhouse since I had Monday off.  It was empty on a Sunday, I had the entire area I was in all to myself.  Really enjoyed the weekend catching those tasty kokes, hanging with good friends and enjoying the comradery and potluck.
