Seago a go go - once the weather picks up

Bought a little Seago Eco 6 weeks ago for pottering around on lochs whilst away with my caravan.
As I love a bit of sea fishing I have made a few mods to prepare it for a life at sea as well.
Intend to do a bit of bass, cod and pollock fishing around some sheltered locations and on some sea lochs - nothing too adventurous.

List of mods are.

Aux Engine.
Padded floor.
Transom wheels.
Rod holders.
Spray cover.

Both engines are interchangeable between the transom and the carrier pad and are connected by lanyards to the transom.
If a breakdown occurs at 12kg and 13kg it will be easy enough to swap the engines over.
For my needs the transom wheels are a must.
It's a snug fit for the two engines and wheels on the small Seago transom but it all works.
Roll on summer time!

You made a great job of the cover Kaman..puts my rough n ready to shame

Jonp..I wish the forecast was as you predict.. when you reach the promised land..you find that you love Mondays.. Saturdays are a drag..because everyone is out then and things get busy

Not reached the promised land yet!
I'd settle for just one days good weather so I can get out and stretch my sea legs.
The spray cover was easier to make than I first thought - cheers for the inspiration Gurnard.
I'm really pleased with the little Seago set up.
It really is a take it anywhere little SIB.
Can't wait to land some smelly fish in it.

I know the feeling Kaman..I have had one day on Loch Leven in the Seago and one day off Oban in the Quicksilver.. and thats my wack so far ..this year..

Another month or so and the first of the mackies will make their appearance ..then the seago will be a go get em SIB. There is nothing tastier than a fresh Seago caught mackerel.. quickly beheaded and gutted as soon as it comes on board the boat.. then thrown in the pan and cooked..before rigamortis has time to notice its dead. Yum Yum..cant wait

I'm salivating looking at those Mackies and that scenery.
I've had the Seago out on Loch Doon for a day.
Landed some little perch.
That's been it.
Not a good season - thus far.
Looking back to last year I went out from early March and had a fair amount of fishing and Sibbing under my belt by the beginning of June.
Here's hoping things pick up.
