Title: Nova Scotia Lobster Boat
Post by: awvs on July 06, 2019, 04:07:23 PM

I wasn't sure whether to continue with my two year old post or start a new one. Decision made.
Inspired by Stan and  Andy (Taranis) I am in the process adding a couple of features to my lobster boat too. A few crewmen, a little cleaning station and some funny lobster decals. Still working on some lobster traps.

Here is the first picture. I will add a few more when the lobster traps are done.

@Thanks Stan.


I attached a few more close-up pictures of the added features. I have to make more lobster traps and I am not to happy with the first one anyway.

Stack the traps along the trap rack on the port side. Some fine boat indeed.

Thanks chum444, will do. It will take a little while to make a set of traps.

Here is a link where a friend of mine describes how to make traps. They go together quite quickly.

Thanks again chum44,
I know the website which is helpful. Right now I am looking for better wire mesh in comparison to the material I used for the first trap.
