How about an over complicated solution, it comes with a big if though...

IF you have a bathroom scale that you trust to be accurate, hook the fish scale on something above you, like a chin up bar and stand on the bathroom scale. By steadily pulling down on the fish scale you can test a range of weights by comparing what comes off the bathroom scale to what goes on the fish scale.

I went a step further and added some pulleys. (see my self portrait below)  :jester:

I realize this isn't really what you were asking for, but still wanted to weigh in.

So weight a 5 lb (2.27 kg for Kanuks) bag of sugar...  That should give you an idea of it's accuracy..

Nice Job SteamFixer, sweet and simple!
What about flipping the tow ball mount like in this picture?

AJ, that’s next if I can find the dang key for the pin :doh:

You could do this for wash down but... for towing, if you go some distance or highway best to keep the trailer as close to parallel to the road. No biggie for a few inches/degrees but a -6" to +6 is a lots.

Congratulations Salmon king!

Sometimes it better to pull the bandaid off fast and be done with it! I hope that makes it an easier and faster transition to retired living. When my father retired it took him the better part of a year to get use to it and enjoy his time.

Get out and do all the things!
All the Best!

I think the whole west coast will have the same conditions. Earlier this week they had the top surfers in the world on notice for a possible go at Mavericks in Half Moon Bay Ca. They were expecting 30+ foot waves

My favorite is Super Seeker, Long Beach made, “Project-X”, Cherry finish....blanks, not factory wrapped....Custom with ALPS Titanium guides.

I own three of these.

Sweet rods Croaker! My personal favorite Seeker is the black steel series. I like the soft, glass tips on em. As far as Calstar, I had a grafighter 800XL but sold it cause it was a bit stiff for my liking. Got a Calstar GX7 instead that is more parabolic and softer. Very nice rod. One more I should mention that I really like is the Phenix Abyss 806 and 807. Good do it all rod and great for Sturgeon too
