So who's been offshore recently? How did you go?

The white box is a plastic cover that wraps over the sounder. This keeps the water and sunlight off the screen. On the back of the sounder there is also a alloy shield to keep the water off the connections. Both home made. I haven't done an article on my mods. All the offshore fishers I know have their own ideas and mine have just evolved over the 6 Revolutions that I have owned. Regards, Grant

Whoa! :lek: :lek: :lek:
Well done Grant! Great to see your persistance & passion has paid off.
And great to see that you have still got that drive that most youngsters have. Mine has dropped away somewhat at my age of 58. I had basically given up since I sold my boat & all the deep sea gear that goes with it. But still like to get out there every now & then. And still have a heavy rod just in case. But I reckon it will fall apart if I ever hook one. I bought it from ebay. :lol:
Anyway. Good on you for persevering even with back pain. :grin:
Love the pics too. :grin:
