"On the subject of unmarked pots, I honestly don't know why we don't all simply cut the lines of those we find. This would be the simplest and most effective way of solving this problem. "

I have better things to do when sailing than spending a lot of time and effort in cutting lobster pot lines.

In the West country, along the north Devon and Cornwall coast there are plenty of lobster pots. If I keep a good look out, I see them in plenty of time. At night time its a bit more difficult I admit.

Besides I am not looking for trouble from fishermen with large powerful boats. And we are the one who want to buy their catches.

Our seas in the west are generally open and navigation is not restricted. If yours navigational restrictions elsewhere in the country are more severe, then I can understand a problem.

Suggest that pot markers are lit somehow. Would be wonderfull for my LED light business!!!!!! [img]/forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img] [img]/forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]
