George Hardy Dismantling Broken Davit #2

Hear George’s choice words as he disassembles the second broken davit aboard his boat in three days in the upcoming video at 9:00AM.

Here’s a picture of George Dismantling Davit #1 just a couple days ago-

George Hardy’s Second Broken Davit In Three Days

Here’s half of the broken davit on George Hardy’s boat The Hard Bottom.

George’s davit snapped from the strain of trying to get his lobster gear up from the bottom of the ocean floor while being entangled with the traps of four other fishermen. This is the second davit that has snapped in three days.

When the first one snapped he went and replaced it with a piece of pine (shown below). So he saved himself a few bucks by using the cheap scrap pine, but cost himself two days fishing due to the mechanical failure of the soft knotty pine used as a davit.

Adding to George’s frustrations on this particular day was the fact that his backman overslept so he had to go fishing alone.

Here’s a picture from two days ago of broken Davit #1
