If anyone wants any gill netting or seine netting for anything let me know. Also herring gillnet...complete with dried herring.

I grabbed some seine web for a neighbour with a tennis court. He was very pleased.

Picked up my new Highfield aluminum bottom RIB yesterday and a new Yamaha 9.9.

Now all I need is a new fuel tank with Yamaha hose and fittings. I must live a life of righteousness and purity cause' look what I found in the dumpster this morning

Mike-the first question that comes to mind is- How the hell did they get that in the dumpster?- and the second would then be-How the hell do you get it out?

I'm a garbage man and it is truly depressing what a disposable society we are. The wife instituted a something comes home, something leaves policy due to a decrease in garage space. By the way, here's a nugget. That thing you threw in first to hide from neighbor or whomever, it's the last thing out and final thing I see in the truck!

Check that tank carefully. Usually the reason one is thrown away is a defect. I places one next to a marine dumpster once. It was a red 6 gallon metal gas can for o/b's. Reason: pinhole leak in its bottom. I did take the cap and gauge/hose-attachment apparatus off. As well as scratched "leak" into the red paint. But, not all discarders may be as forthright.

If your tank find in OK - Then Good On ya!

While I was in a high end California marina, I often times found exactly what I needed for a current project. I was once on my way to buy an electric macerator conversion pump for my head when I spied one attached to a complete toilet next to the dumpster. It was new, never used and bolted right up to my toilet in less time than it would have taken to buy one.
