Thread: Tip: Boat side protection for dip-netting..

    Default Tip: Boat side protection for dip-netting..

    Tired of scratching your side rails when dip-netting from your boat? Don't like taping towels to your dip-net or hanging rugs or rubber mats over the sides of your boat? Try this:

    Buy/use some perc pipe!

    Percolator pipe is used for leach fields and is rather cheap.. If you have a Phantom, SJX, SeaArk, etc. (I'm sure it will work on other boats as well) cut a segment in half, split down the yellow line with a box knife and put it on the sides of your boat.

    Here are a few pics of my Phantom to show you what it looks like installed. Its an easy, temporary, cheap, and lightweight way to keep your boat looking nice while your dip-netting.

    I used that this year on my 20' Sea Runner. Worked great. Kept the net from getting tangled in the rivets for the topper.

    You could also use pvc pipe over the net handle and then it will work on any boat. That's how I didi mine.

    I just received a PM asking for photo's; hopefully this works:



    and



    I had a few scratches on the outside of the boat when I removed them but nothing near as much as I did before I protected the side rails. Worse-case scenario you could add some pipe foam to the outer edge of the boat where the tube comes in contact with the side-wall.
