With the busy season just around the corner, it was time to do a little early spring cleaning.
The first order of business was to clean up the deck and add a soft durable Non- Skid Sea Dek. This was pretty easy to install with a self adhesive backing.
Next was to take the Cushions off and have them redone in new fabric, We went with a darker color that matches the tan hull. Most importantly we add some extra foam in the cushions to keep everyone comfortable for the ride to and from the Miami Tarpon fishing grounds.
The rods and reels all went in for a service. Drags washers removed cleaned and replaced if necessary. The Drag is probably the most important item to check. These Tarpon can make explosive initial runs of 200 yards. The drag needs to be smooth and strong as the line comes off the reel.
We use all Carbon Drag washers on our reels its an upgrade and does not always come that was from the factory.
The Tarpon fishing is off to a strong start this year with plenty of action and I am defintely pleased when my customers come back and see the boat and ask "did you get a new boat"
