    The aluminum was not holding up well. I am now planning on getting some thin one inch or so flat bar and having them bent into hoops to make another enclosure. The Blunt should look like a Conestoga wagon before long!! :wink: Also removed the deep freezer live well so we can fish Blewitt Falls tomorrow comfortably. Then, it will go back on for the Winyah Bay tourney the 2nd. Happy Holidays to all my friends!!

    Bill my Sea Nymph has a full encloser and i hardly ever use it. If it rains during the Jan tournament i think it will have to go on. Its nice, i should use it more often. Lazy i guess:smile2:

    bill, you should over lay them bars with cedar shingles that would give you a unique look and would last forever:cool2:

    Bill,
    Your aluminum tubing will work if you use rubber isolation pads to mount it to your railing. This will isolate it from the flexing and keep it from breaking up so bad. We use this technique in industry a lot. In fact, I have seen where we cut the aluminum uprights and put rubber hose between the 2 pieces with hose clamps holding it together. It might be worth a try before investing in a lot of flatbar.
