Ok havn't set mine up yet but the way I envisage it is this.
The fish will be on s/s 8 mm chain with a swivel at the fish end.
Once set the chain will have a s/s bolt at the trawl block to set the depth.
From the end of the chain I will use normal rope for retrieval.
The top stay and forward stay for the arms will be Dynema (Dynex) 8 or 10 mm and these are of a fixed length, the aft stay is a fixed s/s arm.
The trawl block is suspended from the end of the arms using a 2 eyed length of 3/4" nylon ( approx. 18" long). This will act as the shock absorber instead of using springs.
Retrieval will be with a lazy line and a small winch on either side.
In the s/s chain hangers I will have a weak spot so that they will let go and not rip the arms out.
Once I get to set it up I will submit some pictures.
