Anyone trying to lift crab or light cray pots over the side of a boat or retrieving a longline or ‘puka dropper will realise how a short roller-tipped davit can make the job that much easier. Designed to be fitted to a kayak or a small trailerboat, the Scotty Trap Ease is manufactured from reinforced nylon and is adjustable to produce various angles. The unit could also be used to deploy a light dredge used as a game-fishing teaser, the arm extending 400mm beyond the gunwale.
Distributed by R.A.Conaghan (NZ) Ltd, Auckland and S.R.Marsten and Co Ltd, Christchurch, and available in tackle stores nationwide. Go to www.fishingtackle.co.nz for more Scotty products.
