More Fish Cleaning Table Stuff

Just to show you guys that I do more than fish here is the basic Conch Concepts fish cleaning table base. It is made of pressure treated 2x4 and 1x6. Some people were concerned that 2x4 was not sturdy enough for building the table base. This sucker is solid. The secret is the 1x6 frame under the table top. This is glued and screwed into the 2x4 legs to prevent racking. Also the bottom 2x4 frame is cut to get the maximum bite into the legs. The materials for the pressure treated base cost less than 25 bucks for you do it yourselfers if you spend the time digging for straight lumber at the Home Depot.

Our plans are to include the drawings for the basic base with the top which will retail for $399. We also are working on a powder coated square aluminum base, round pipe stainless or aluminum base, the two leg bent aluminum light travel base and of course the ultimate Tiki cleaning station.

My next project is to enclose the basic pressure treated base to add two drawers for knives, baggies etc, and two doors for storage under the table. The basic pressure treated base won't blow wind up many skirts, but enclosed with some nice cedar or other material it will look hot. Once that design is complete we should have a product sexy enough to impress any fisherman.

Fishing wise it was a good day for the few boats that were booked. The only down side was that sailfish were slow today.

Marathon in the Florida Keys should be your next fishing vacation destination. Join us for charter fishing, fishing guide trips or our fishing 101 so you can fish on your own with better success.

Tight lines,

Capt. Dallas
