    I like it. Can you put a bungy cord on there or something so you can rig it where you can leave the pole in the bracket when it's up? Be nice not to have to take the stake inside the boat for anything but the longest runs in rough water.

    If I could do my skiff again losing the power pole in exchange for something like this would be high on my list of 'things worth considering.' I would save money and weight.

    Still working on that. Bungee seems to work for now, but don't have the confidence yet to leave it up in rough water, just tried it out for the first time today. It is quiet, cant' hear the motor running lol.

    I really like it. Less weight, less money, less maintenance and no problems. Could you make some sort of second bracket and attach it up higher on your platform. Incorporate some type of locking mechanism to keep the pole in-place while running.

    I really like that.

    Did you build that bracket yourself?

    *This is not any sort of derogatory comment.

    With a couple of mods that could be an awesome mount/carrier for a Stick pin or ****.

  • aflatsnutaflatsnut Posts: 89 Deckhand
    Thanx

    Camera is nothing special, a Kodak Z710 DSLR 7 Mpixel 10X zoom about 7-8 yrs old. Has a macro setting for closeups. I prefer it over my Fuji waterproof point and shoot.

    Looks good Bob. That is what I use on my Maverick and it holds. This replaced a power pole on my ride as it was too much wieght in the stern for nearshore fishing. Part of the fine tuning of my ride to make it specialized for cobia and tarpon fishing. I also use my pin as a puch pole when needed. Not from the platform but by sticking it in the mud and walking the length of the gunnel. Different but works for my.

    I like it also but I think it would be in the way if you pole your boat without taking it off as apposed to leaving it mounted sticking up in the air. Overall seems a little cumbersome but still quieter, lighter, cheaper and more dependable.
