Fishing With Velcro
Expert Article By: Norb
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 day.
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 NLCATFISH
