First Sea Trial With 2 Paravanes

There are 2 paravanes with 2 yellow balls. Inside each ball is a fishing reel that can let the line out for the paravane automatically. This lets me toss in both paravanes at nearly the same time.

This video is the whole experiment. The left side reel let the line out at a slow speed. The right side must have had a higher drag setting on the reel as we had to move a bit faster to get it out. Eventually the fishing line knot on one of the reels came undone. I need to get better at fishing line knots. But the system for letting the lines out is getting reasonable.

One of the paravanes has been filed so that it stays down in the water better. I thought I had done the other but had not. Both of them came out of the water, so they're not the ultimate design.

Here is the view from Ethan's camera:

After a line comes loose we both have to focus on getting things out of the water.   One of us driving and the other grabbing things with the mooring hook.   So far we have always recovered everything.  The side that has not come loose we just wind in with the reel in the ball.   But we still have to get the paravane onboard and then stow things.   Anyway, no video of the recovery work.  :-)

  2. The design of fmwhatsapp download apk latest version is truly impressive. I've come across a video shared by a friend that showcases its unique features. It's fantastic to see that you've discovered a method that not only works effectively for you but also enables you to retrieve items and securely stow them onboard. Your innovative approach adds another layer of value to the overall user experience.


  3. It sounds like you've been busy experimenting with your paravanes and fishing reels! Having the ability to let out the lines automatically definitely seems like a game-changer for efficiency. YoWhatsApp

    It's interesting to hear about the differences between the left and right side reels, especially with the varying speeds for letting out the line. And hey, learning to tie fishing line knots can be tricky – but practice makes perfect, right?

    Filing down one of the paravanes to improve its performance in the water shows your dedication to refining your setup. It's all part of the process of finding the ultimate design that works best for your needs.

    Thanks for sharing your experience with the experiment – it's always cool to hear about the hands-on work people are doing to improve their fishing setups!
