Re: Crab Pots, friend or foe
Sorry, I haven't been following this thread, so I'm coming in late,.
A few weeks ago we were in Maine and took the ferry from Port Clyde to Monhegan Island. There were thousands of lobstah traps, spaced so closely they were seemingly spaced narrower than the boat's beam. The captain just went straight through. I went forward to introduce myself and get to know him a little, and asked him about the traps. He said his props (twin screws) had cages around them so he could drive straight through without snagging them.
