Default Need photos from the dory guys

When you have some time can any one post up photos of your consoles and fuel tanks and mounting systems.

If you have outriggers that would be good too, especially if they are deployed.

Time to do some rigging and outfitting. Hopefully in time to get to the sand in the next few months.

Thanks

What kind of boat do you have? Learned? Home Built? I think some pictures of what you have might be helpful.

Here's a picture of our console (and a yellowtail)


Since we run out of Cannon Beach we didn't see the need for a CB, so we only have VHF. A Chartplotter/fishfinder combo really helps when you don't have much room.

I don't have any pictures, but our fuel tank is mounted in the forward storage cabinet. I think we had Terry build it a little higher to accommodate it though.

No outriggers on the current dory, but our old Crown had them. Were you thinking light weight outriggers or full commercial outriggers?

1974 Harvey. My first design of the helm. They're all a work in progress.

The binnacle mount for my GPS/FF snapped off. It is now mounted in the dash, with the VHF moved to the wall at the right of the helm. There's also a fire-extingusher on the right side of the helm. I've used Cole-Hersee switches.

Pics form the rebuild of Humble Pie

Pretty simple console. Plotter on top, same with VHF, CB is inside.



Front of console incorporates a rod rack. Holds 6-8 rods. Also has rocket launchers below for larger, more rods.



We tried and installed fuel tank built in under the console. But after 2 years it cracked. We went back to two 12 gallon plastic boat cans on the deck in front of the console on the floor. I would recommend whatever you do fuel tank wise, make them removable. We tried to make use of ome dead space and improve weight distribution. Great idea until the tank cracked.

Under the tank, to let water flow through the brass channels. Put a coat of epoxy over it before the tank went in.



The tank sitting in place. Was mounted on UHMW on the ribs, floating.



After the tank was in.



Good luck.

Edit to add: The stupid Mercury style plastic fuel line connections chronically popped off and sometimes the little O-ring inside would roll and suck air.

We threw those away and went to a Suzuki style fuel line conection. Works like a snap fitting on an air line. Absolutely no issues since changing the connection to this style.

I have all sorts of storage plastered on my extra-tall console, and it has worked out well. On the sides are wooden grab rails (thanks edsr). Just below that the small black square is a cheap fold-down drink holder. There are two rod holders on the side, with one tilted forward so the rod doesn't bang against the CB antenna. The CB antenna is on one side, the VHF on the other. On the front of console are my gaffs stored vertically in clips. Though it's hard to see, I also keep a junk reel on a rod stub there, ready rigged with a rockfish release device.




The back of the console sports another cup holder (shown holding a water bottle), and below that a HoldsIt for pliers and file The little doohicky top left is a rubber rod clip that is perfect for holding ChapStick. Just above the water bottle is a waterproof horn button. It's hard to see, but the Ritchie Explorer compass is mounted atop the console dead center. Handheld GPS units, on RAM mounts, are also mounted on top.

The console interior holds CB, VHF and fishfinder. At left is a wooden panel that holds fused switches and a voltmeter (swithable between batteries). I need to add a chartplotter, and it will be challenging to fit it in.



The fire extinguisher is mounted on the port side of the console. You can see the compass and GPS units on top of the console.

It's a Learned style. He said it wasn't one of his though. With out a kid I don't know how to do photos.

Would like to go with full commercial riggers. Have separate floor boards to hold the tote in place and also for sport days. I haven't been around a real full on set of riggers in some time and would like to see at least pictures of them before getting to the mounting.I have some 20' alder sticks all sprung, strung and ready to mount. Thought about pivot brackets on the box or on a brace block in the front floor area

Was looking for the best way to securely attach the console to the box. Lot's of way but looking for the most common. It was just glued down to the port side of the fish box, and that wasn't going to work. Needs to be centered and most solidly fastened.

Also tried of boat cans, like most I'm sure. But ran into the same problem as GRB. The tanks splits at the seem someplace. Rigid tank and a flexing boat. I have been looking at your rebuild, very nice.

Has anyone ever used a removable storage shelf along the sides. Sometimes it would be awful nice not to have them, " in the way". They are nice for a knee brace though.

On our Crown we had a mast attached to the front of the console. The poles attached to the base of the mast near the floor boards. Then we had U shaped brackets that the poles fit it and strapped into. I might even still have the brackets somewhere, though if I was to do it again I would do it a little different. We still have our poles from the old boat, but haven't put them on the new one (my dad and brother want it done, but I'm resisting).


As for the fuel tank, it's just a plastic Moeller tank that is strapped (it seems like it should secure better, but that is the system they use) into the front box. They key is finding one that is the right size for what you have. I think we gave Terry the dimensions of the tank so the he would make sure it fit.

My console is attached to the sides of the built-in fishbox with four galvanized carriage bolts. If you remove the bolts, the console can be lifted off completely. Terry does it this way so the console can be removed for shipping, or if you ever want to flip the boat and work on the bottom. You can see the bolt heads in my second photo above, at the bottom corners of the console.

As for the boat cans, they do take up a lot of space. I was using outboard snap connections on all the tanks, but then started getting air leaks that made my motor cut out at inopportune times. Now I have most of my tanks permanently plumbed with flex hose and a 4-way selector valve. Problem solved.

OK you knot-heads,

Here's a couple pics of my boat's transom.





The top two bolts are inside the splash well. I put a piece of 4" wide, 1/4" thick stainless steel plate between the bolt holes to spread the weight. Bottom two bolts are on SS plate washers under the transom.

We have a skag guard on the big motor now, and a kicker on the starboard side.

Is that what you needed?

Very helpful. Now more can get going. I'm sure I'll be back with more though.

Reel Obsession, I some how erased your message and didn't get to read it first.

Thanks.
