Two Giffy niffties

Published on October 19, 2009 by in Talk


A couple of times on past shows Giffy Full has mentioned his “pot deflectors” as a friendlier way of minimizing getting lobster trap rope wound-up in your propeller. Friendlier than cutters, one trap costs about $50. So a picture is worth a thousand dollars. Here’s 2K. The forward pin is smaller than the aft pin in the bracket, so if it takes a hard whack it should swing back. The fasteners are copper rivets.

While I was at the boat he told me I should see his portlights also. He calls them the “Winthrop Warner” portlights. Pretty simple. Just change the glass for a screen made of screening laminated into a formica frame for ventilation. No great panes here. a.s.
