FISHING WITH VELCRO
Over the years I have made improvements in my fishing boat with
the help of Velcro. I have a portable fish-finder so to mount it
and be able to remove it easily this was my fix. I glued down a
number of one type of Velcro strips to my boats bench seat. The
other type of Velcro strips to the bottom of the mounting bar on
the fish-finder. This arrangement holds the finder firmly, yet
just lift up and it is moved around so I can see the screen when
I am sitting in my fishing seat. Allows easy removal to pack away
at the end of the fishing day.
The second use I found was on the form rubber seat I use while
controlling my outboard motor. The same manner of strips on the
bench seat of the boat and the bottom of the foam seat. Holds
firm while in use yet easy to remove and store at the end of the
Finally it has resolved my problem with my gas line vibrating
free while running. It is a real pain to be watching what is in
front of the boat and the gas line slips off. So I now have a
small strip of Velcro over the connection on the motor and over
the connector on the gas can. I now have the other side of the
Velcro on the two ends of the gas line. This holds the gas line
in place just fine; so I no have to be concerned with my motor
dying on the river.
So if you need a few minor things to hold some of YOUR stuff
together , think about what some Velcro can do to help. Tight lines to all. nlcatfish
