I saw your Father out there on many days this winter. That Sea Ray really stood out from the fleet. That is quite an accomplishment at any age. Congrats again. :)

Sorry bout' that, I guess I should read more carefully. Anyway he is probubly someone Pop and his kids should be very proud. :) That gin pole loks like it sure did get the job done. We don't have a transom door on the boat I fish so we have a roller table that goes in the rod holders on the stern and is braced off the transom. We rig a block and tackle off the bridge and the fish come nice an easy up the ramp and into the cockpit. We keep it lashed to the bow while fishing so it is out of the way.

The gin pole is a Home depot 4x4 that he painted with drylok paint. He mounted it with bolts through the transom as Fishy said. Its also worth mentioning that by the time he got one of those fish in, he was stripped down to his boxers because he was sweating so much. The guy is an absolute classic.

I will get one next trip down. It is a really simple design. It has two post that go into heavy duty rodholders on the frame and has a series of rollers spaced about 4 inches apart forming a ramp to the water. It is nice because the fish won't swing around and damage the boat or the catch in rough seas. :)

Because your over 70 does not mean that you go to the junk yard. I and others like me can outfish many a younger man. Picasaso became a father at age 92. I don't know if he had any help from his friends. Good fishing to all.
