looking for wind sock
Drift sock or wind sock?
I made one out of a 5 gal bucket and when its onboard I store other stuff in it. The directions for makeing one is in the members library.
Thanks for posting this info Willard...
The only one I've ever bought I bought from Cabela's last year and I am more than satisfied. It has all the nylon straps needed and no need for additional rope. They were the best prices I could find last year and they have them on sale right now.
I can tell you an inexpensive way to make one.....
1-5 gallon plastic bucket
1- Throw net swivel
Drill (5) 2 inch holes in the bottom of the bucket. Then drill 4 holes in the top of the bucket at 0, 90, 180 and 270 degrees just large enough to get the nylon rope thru and about 2 inches down from the top of the rim.
Take 2 pieces of nylon rope (about 2 1/2 feet long) and go thru the eye of the swivel. then tie one piece of rope at 0 and 180 degrees, through the small holes 2 inches down from the rim, repeat with the 90 and 270, then add about 15 feet of rope on the swievel and you tie the other end to the boat...works great for about 15 dollars
i have two 6ft socs i will sale for &140.oo if you pick them up they have very little use
check ebay [drift sock ] hope that helps
Boomer, where do you get a throw net swivel, and what size rope do you use? Thanks.
i made mine out of 5 gallon buckets they work better than drift socks as they dont collect the debris as bad as the socks super easy to make and inexpensive go to hookedoncatfish.com and mr lange has detailed instructions on how to make if your interested hope this helps:wink:
I usually cut them off my old throw nets, however you can got to Lowe's, Home Depot, ect, and they have swievels you can get that servest the same purpose (I just built a tire swing for my girls and bought one) they dont have to be very big. I use 1/2 in nylon rope, it works well and does not rot..
Academy Sports in Spartanburg has 36" socks for $15.00 each. I have 3 of them, they work great. They are made from a heavy vinyl material, with 4 heavy nylon straps.
God Bless All,
