I used the photo on this webpage to rig my Getaway trap kit. I hope it is correct.
The only knot I used in rigging my trap is a bowline.http://www.atlanticwindsadventure.com/product.php?product=16
Hi Rob...i'd normally have taken the bolt in but the boat(and bolts) are an hour away.
Mark...i see the 'bowlines' in that pic. i had a picture that looked more like simple overhand or figure8.
intersting thing in that pic is that the trap line is caged inside the wings the line is coming up between hull and wing instead of running from hull to the outside of the wings.
i've got no idea which is right or wrong waybut i assume it shouldn't be caged in (limited travel fore/aft).
i've seen pics where the traps are run from hull to the outside of the wings.
