Long Haul

Finally pulled the traps yesterday despite temps in the thirties and a stiff breeze.  Even though I brought in five lobsters in the haul, it is a messy, arduous and sometimes stressful process.   But by the time next spring rolls around, I'm sure that I will have forgotten the bother, plus there will be renewed promises from well wishing Peeps to help throughout the season.

And I'll set the traps again.

I lost four from my original ten this year, which seems like a significant percentage of loss.  If I did this for a business, it would be unacceptable.

A nice byproduct of lobstering is the nice workout that get pulling the traps by hand.  I had purchased a pulley system a couple of years ago, but have never got around to using it.... mainly because Dougie Maxfield questioned my manhood regarding the process.

Doug, are you against wheels or something?  What do you think... should we still be living in caves??? Jeez.

The pram was mutilated in the recent wind and rain storms down on the Village Wharf rings, and Mike and I pulled that out as well.  We will need a complete refurbishment and design changes for the next season.

I'm all for the davit system that you had proposed...I just couldn't bear the though of you putting it on that beautiful boat that you built. Kind of like putting a trailer home on beach front property.
