Getting too old to waddle around in a skinny boat. This oughta fix me up for dumping in the lake. This is basic. I will have something that hold the buckets, etc. secure until I "dump". Probably unpin something when the lift starts to raise. I dunno know yet. As you can see, this is mostly scrap parts.

I love motion machines. Click on the pic for action toy.

Go fishing, Tom.

Looks like Miss Brenda kicked you out of the house and you have too much time on your hands.

Love that green boat with the yellow trailer. You must be a Green Bay Packer fan.

Talk BillBob into sitting up there, then you can just dump him.

You can get them from Ebay, but you never know what u are really getting as the dealers have very limited knowledge (what is written on the box).

These folks are knowledgable.


I mostly deal with Servo City. That is where I got the Super Duty 560 thrust high speed actuator to steer my pontoon. These units are IP65 rated. Good enough for use in the boat, splash, low pressure water proof but not submergible.

Great idea Tom, now you need to put one on the stern so you can dump two at the time and they will be perfectly spaced.

Patent or trademark the idea. You are very creative.
