    I haul mine from the starboard (right) side, mostly because that is the side of the boat I drive from and I can see the buoy better that way when pulling up to it, otherwise it wouldn't really matter to me

    Default my hauler is mounted on the right side, so.......

    The hauler is on the right side, therefore I haul on the right.

    Starboard side since I installed a pot puller. But I've pulled from both sides, and even over the transom when I was puling by hand.

    What are you thinking about improving that would make a difference what side they were puled from?

    I use a QuickCatch Pot Puller by Powerwinch, have it on the bow, works great there and pulls the anchor too...bow has a well to stand in, it's a Hewes...

    Default Starboard

    Same side as the helm, With the 5 foot high flyers I made I can drift them right down the side of the boat where the slaves, I mean my kids, can grab it.

    Last boat I hauled on the Port side but the new boat will be on the Starboard side that is where the hauler is mounted.

    When are you going to start selling the new design? I've got 3 of your pots now, and just may have to pick up a couple more. Here's a pic we took Saturday of one of your pots with 73 tails in it! Those bugs are so dang good...
