Crab Pot racks for a SR17
« on: July 17, 2017, 07:22:18 AM »
Here are my new design for crab pot racks for the SR17. Not quite done yet but as soon as I get the foot base and finish my bunge cords this should give me a lot more deck space. I took the idea from another post on this site and changed it a little bit. Watch out Sandy Point CRABS...

Nice workmanship  :bowdown:  . Deck space is always a challenge when crabbing. Now, because you don't have the Arima bait table perhaps making a table to fit the racks while fishing would make up for that. Also, allows your motor to be tilted without running into the Arima table.

Of course a table. As you can see I had to take the down rigger bases off for the rack install. These will need to be reinstalled next. One step at a time. Just finished the battery and 27 gallon tank upgrade. I can't believe this boat 33 years old and still going strong. That says a lot for Arima...

Very nice pot racks!  I like the simplicity and compact size.  Good design and execution, I'm envious of you metal workers....

Sweet! And just think how many Scotty rod holders you could connect to those racks when not transporting crab pots!
