Best handheld vacuum for boats?

6 posts in this topic

Alright, this one's a little Martha Stewart, but........What do you all use for cleaning out the boat? I'm tired of lugging the shopvac into the boat and not being able to maneuver around the boat with it.

I need a new handheld vac, one that gets the sand out of the carpet.

What are your suggestions?

Thanks,

Hoggs

Small shop vac works great. the big ones are a pain. If you dont like that idea dirt Devil I think it is makes a small bag hand held with a rotating brush that a friend uses and it seems to do a good job of loosing up the dirt etc. in the carpet. Just not as powerful as a shop vac.

I use a small shop vac to get around where the Dirt Devil can't go. As I shop vac I get the sinkers and line off the floor at that time. You don't want to hit a sinker with the Dirt Devil no do you want fishing line getting wound up in the beater bar.

Yup!

If you want something small, get the Dirt Devil with with the rotating brush.

Also: To get blood out of the carpet, use Oxy-Clean. Spray bottle or small wipes - works great !! cool.gif

Hands down, 18v dewalt 2gal shop vac!!! Use at work, at home, in the boat, in the car, and anywhere you want to carry it. It also has a power cord, if you are near an outlet.

      I crossed over to the dark side of smallies about 15 years ago. Mostly chase pannies in winter but used to chase eyes a few times on the hard water each season.   I could post a ton of pics if you need more proof.

      I was up over the weekend and my shoreline was getting pretty sketchy.  Had a pocket of open water down the shore about a 100 yards. Where I could see the bottom in two to three feet of water.  Walked out about a hundred yards and popped four holes Saturday afternoon. There was 17- 18.5"s of ice in those four holes. Looking at the forecast I can't see the ice sticking around too much longer.  The holes I popped had 5-6" of pretty mushy cloudy stuff on top and about 12"s of pretty solid stuff underneath it.
