Working on this right now... Those brackets on the top I mentioned? This is what they are for. They are designed to be drilled in, or clamped to, without sacrificing anything structurally.



Here is a few pics so far... I'll make a video soon and post it with them in action on the water with battery, ice chest, etc.

Those lights swivel and rotate. They are water resistant, and carry 2 55 watt h3 bulbs each, side by side. For wading I think this will be plenty.



I'm also going to try another configuration with submerged lights, but for now this is my attempt at non-submerged

That looks like the "meal ticket" forthose who like to wade!!It seems it would free up the hand that would normally be holding the light.That's huge!

Kinda offf topic here, but when you were goingout to Johnson's Beach to make your "test videos", did you happen to pulla width measurement on the road-to-beach boardwalks they have out there in casesomeone wants to put the wheels on it and pull it down one of those? I'm wanting to fab a cheap cart to pullall of my kids "stuff" down to the beach when we go and would like to make it soit would fit on those boardwalks.

Bingo. That was the whole idea. I hate having a battery in a tub, then having a long ass cord going to my light to get tangled up in. Say good bye to cords.



I havent been to Johnsons beach so no I have not measured the beach to road boardwalks, But I would guess they are at least 4ft maybe more

That is an awsome piece of engineering. Is it designed as a personal polling pontune set-up or a push in front of setup. I know its not for pulling because the lights will be behind you. You did a hell of a job on her. Cant wait to see the sea trials. Definatly a cool piece, every wade gigging family needs 1!!!!! Keep on coming up with cool stuf Sir Gigalot!!

Death From Above (3/13/2010)Looks like it would work great with two giggers, onewalking along each side of it.


Yep, I agree! its a lot easier to just pile your stuff on it and two people grab it and carry it down to the water by the front and back handles, then get one person on each side with their light and not miss any fish

Its more for one person walking on the side, with the lights pointed however he wants,

or

two people, one on each side.



You don't pull it, you just hold on to the basket side rails while you walk and when you see one just let go and you have both hands free to stick him. No worries with corded lights



Also great for crabbing

Kim (3/14/2010)Hey you may want to consider some type of handle attachment so that when the giggers are wading with it they have a means to control it.


Got a handle on the front and the basket is one big handle. I appreciate the feedback.
