    Guys,
    I am putting together a website specifically for cool and unique products like the ones in this thread. I manufacture some products myself and marketing these things can take up a lot of time and effort. If you would be interested in putting your products on my website give me a call or email. The goal here is to get as many cool products as possible that you wont find in big stores. We help each other out by having a customer come to look at one item and seeing other thngs they didnt even know existed (and just cant live without!).
    I just grabbed the domain name and threw up a page just to get things started. The website is www.CoolWaterProducts.com
    I have a good number of interested small manufactures now. I think this is going to be a real hit. Think of it as The Sharper Image or Sky Mall for boating and fishing.
    I will be working on getting the website into an active state in the very near future.
    If you know of anyone who might produce something along these lines, have them contact me. The more products the better everyone will do.
    Thanks and sorry for the partial derail....
    Chris

    Can you deploy it from the platform? That's the major downside I was thinking. By the time get down to anchor you've spooked or lost the fish.



    Boat share for the demanding angler.

    YES......... thats the whole idea of the design -not to spook the fish , the pin stays in the mount under enough pressure to hold it in place ,simply /quietly push in down when ready.

    What about a push pole caddi and stakeout mount in one fixture? Maybe the mounting of the fixture would be too high from the deck to make it effective as a stakeout mount??? Additionally, you’d lose some stakeout stroke based on the height of the fixture from the water surface.

    A few quick question on the manual poles for positioning a boat...

    1. You think one would work on a 22 foot 2,600 pound bay boat? It's a Century 2202

    2. If it would work, how much penetration do you think we you would need, and what size dia rod?

    3. We'll be trailering down to the Keys this year for opening of lobster season and will do most of our stuff in the bay. I know that danforths pull quick in the bay with al that grass with lots of chaine. Because that's true, I've never had a chance to evaluate what's underneath the grass. If I anchor here in a stiff wind, the longer I"m on the hook the deeper the anchor digs and the harder it is to pop lose. Down there, it pops out with in a 10 mph wind.... So, the question is... is there sand beneath the grass roots, or do you hit limestone? WIll a power pole work in that 6-10 foot clear water stuff around the banks out of Marathon.

    I don't have the money to buy a Power Pole right now, but a manual deal sure would be nice on the holes that have a lot of lobster on them. Anchor gets to be a pain.
    We'll be trailering it

    Here's one really, really simple stick pin mount:

    There's one on the stern too....of course you have to build the boat to get these kind of mounts.

    I just ordered two TnA 8' stick poles. I have never liked the idea of mounting the alternatives to my transom. More things to go wrong with pumps, electrical and added transom weight. The cost of $130 of two delivered isn't bad either versus $3K or so for the others I won't name.

    I may buy the TnA mount ($100) but first ill see how they work by themselves tied to my bow cleat and polling platform.
