Does anyone know how to open the fish
on a taffrail log to install a line or wire leader. I assume that the top or bottom is screwed on but before I start reefing on it with a vice grip I am hoping to hear from someone that has actually done it.
I know these are historical artifacts. But last summer, 8 hours into a 400 mile passage
the speed log stopped working, so for $95.00 on eBay I now own a log with two fish
. It might not be the best or easiest system but its a back up, (perhaps now that the log is on board the speed log will never fail). Perhaps its just me but I had no desire to pull the log while on passage
. I am not a luddite but on open water
passages I don't use the chart plotter. Both the radio
so this is not an issue of knowing where the boat is. Thanks.
