Trap pullers

Hi,
Just got a 1996 Zodiac 14" and would like to get a prawn trap puller and attach to rib. Does anyone have any suggestions or pics of what they have done? I have a stainless steel front bar with cleat on it and also a stainless steel arch on the stern.
Thanks for any help or ideas

On a 14 ft boat a pair gloves might be the solution

Hauling traps on-board a RIB

Did you solve the prawn trap hauling issue? I have a similar problem. Mostly solved by wife sporting gardening gloves who enjoys hauling the trap line. My problem is that I wish to come up with a roller or other effective non permanent system to mitigate tube chafing. Any ideas?

Simple & cheap is a piece of conveyor belting or similar thick rubber mat cut to cover the tube.

We use rubber door Mats from b&q the ones with holes in, tie wrapped to the boat and each other work a treat and cheap
