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 know this is an Ice Fishing thread, but I can't seem to find much information on ice condition on the lake or how the snow looks out there and on the trails. I live down in the Duluth area and was thinking about coming snowmobiling up there this next weekend. Seems the whole states in a stupid heat wave. But you guys had more snow than us before, was wondering if there's still enough to snowmobile.

      LOTS of traffic on the Hole In The Day access over the weekend.  It degraded noticeably from Saturday to Sunday.   There are two paths heading out.  The one going straight ahead has a bit of a ridge at shore that longer houses/low clearance vehicles might have a little trouble with.  The one to the right is angled and doesn't have the ridge but developed a hole at shore Saturday night.   I'm hoping it doesn't get any worse but probably will before the weekend.  We were planning on being out overnight before the contest but plans seem to be changing.  Especially since it was reported that a vehicle went through by Hunters Point over the weekend.  Hunters Point is on the Southwest side of the lake but makes my wife leary of taking out truck and house back out even on the Northeast end where the contest is.   Sorry for the bad news.  I'm still crossing my fingers and will check the access again this week.

      Very nice fish! Thanks for the heads up on the ice cleats. Do you know how the access is holding up with this warm weather ?
