New beach fishing/work setup
« on: Mon 2 Apr 17:12 2018 »
New ute fishing setup. Swag/Bed will go inbetween the tool boxes. Big esky in the back seat. N I'm working on a drop down table to cook/bar under the awning. Idea is to have nothing touching the ground (so I'll hang some weight off the poles on the awning n maybe an occy strap ) to make moving quick n easy no pegs n ropes just drive if I have to move for the tide. It's all based on some sail track n some old pvc/thick vinal advertising signs that already have the edges to suit sail track. I've stuffed around with tarps before but have always had issues sealing off between the cab n the tray with my pipe rack. This way I have gotten around that by useing two pieces of pvc on two opposing sail tracks. I'll try n put some better picks up when I sort out the table.
Looking forward to the next trip

Head board sail track. There is a second piece of the same pvc tarp that slides in to the top sail track that stops the rain coming in between the ute cab n the tray.

Modified the awning set up now to have a fixed length. Useing hardwood dowels with 150 mm Batton screws with the head cut off at the top to join the tarp end. Then the sail track is so I can hang another off cut of the tarp in there if needed.

Just need to use it now n see if there's any fine tuning needed. Table is still a work in progress. As I was given this stainless shelf so I'm still making a plan on how to set it up on the side under the awning.

Table n set up in action. Only thing that touched the ground was my chair n a few rod holders. Made cleanup today a lot easier. Just hung my tackle bag off the end to hold it down in the wind. Was great to be able to move closer or further away from the waters edge with out having to pack up n put more sand in the back each time. Table is on a hinges that would normaly be on a drop down side of an alloy tray.
Looking forward to the next trip

Long term I  still want to do a jack off beach tray n have another set up for work with the pipe rack n oxy so I can be packed n ready to go days out from leaving n then clean up during the next week instead of the mad rush to wash down n put tools back in.
Looking forward to the next trip
