Me and a buddy went last night for about 4 hrs , got a few , crabs are everywhere. We also seen a few smaller ones we let go. Could have been better. Still had a good time.

Looking good.



But I sure wouldn't lay them on the gate of my truck. HeHe







I'm getting the Bug again, but I'm going to rework my boat. Thinking of building a generator box too.



These people are crazy as to the price of this box. They only want $800 for the box + $100 to ship it. HaHa





I think I'll build it out of some lightweight plywood [1/4in] and glass it. Then add some insulation / sound deadener. Thinking about Dynamat .

That alum could become a resonator without some sound deadener.



I have actually thought about doing this for a few years, but wondered if the motor may get to hot? I guess not after seeing this.







.

While these generators are the quitest you can get [58db @ 21ft] I want it quieter. Even thinking of adding a Super Trap muffler to it. The clamp on one is what I would use, but I'm wondering if it would kill the motors power with adding it after the stock muffler and just clamping it to the exhaust pipe?

That is just my work truck . The box looks good , but for that price I would have to hear the noise. I would check with Blue Coral ,they might could build you one cheaper.

HaHa That was what I posted about their price being ridicules.



If you look close at you will see it's just pop riveted together. So some material and a sheet metal sheer and break would make the pieces.



Still it would ring like a big drum without some sound deadening.



I could build one easy with wood and glass. Wood is a better sound deadener. Yet I would add more.

Nice catch. Do you boil the crabs right away or can you freeze them and boil them later?
