OLD FISHIN' TIPSTER'S
TIPS AND TRICKS


Got a question about fishing, that you have never been able to figure out?

Well, along comes old Fishin' Tipster, Weekend Semi-Pro and resident backlash picking champion, with the solution.


BOAT STORAGE COMPARTMENT SWEATING

Many of today's boats have aluminum interiors (i.e., the storage compartment lids, livewells, decks, etc.). A very common irritant is that storage compartments, which are SUPPOSED to keep our 'stuff' dry, fail to do their jobs well. Many times, the storage compartment lids are angled wrong and/or have poorly designed drainage from around the lip of the well and the lid edge. Another thing that very often gets our 'stuff wet in the compartment is sweating (condensation build-up) on the underside of the lid. The condensation eventually drips off the lid and keeps everything nice and damp (also spelled 'mildew', if left alone for awhile).

Old Fishin' Tipster can't do much for boat design, save finding a bigger hammer or cleaning out the drain hole regularly. But, we have just the trick for that condensation problem.

All you need is a spray can (or, a brush-on liquid form) of truck bed liner. Yep, even us Weekend Semi-Pros can keep our FroggToggs and spare jackets dry in the storage compartment now. Be sure to mask the entire area off around the lid and the boat. Then, spray on two coats of the liner material. Be sure to spray up inside the reinforcing bar that will usually be welded to the underside of the lid. (If you do get a little on the boat, a quick rub with some acetone cleans it right off; just don't let it dry first!)

Eureka!!! No more underside sweating on those aluminum lids!!

A common question that we get: "Is there somewhere close to get bait and tackle?" This is where we get our bait.
