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 have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!
