    ATTN POLY OWNERS

    guy's just bought a poly 530 cc and am planning to do alot of reef fishing. just wondering if while fishing with handlines will the line cut into the poly or will i need to run a strip or stainless over the corner of the gunwales to prevent it cutting in? thanks heaps

    Fishing only with Braid you might.

    But plastic line, and plastic boat, should be no problem.

    Run some 2 inch clear sticky tape over the edge if your concerned.
    A marriage licence should be like your fishing licence!

    I had a poly and loved it.

    Accidentally left it parked on the road on a recycle night..... Goooone.

    don't own a poly, but I have fished with a heavy handline before and it does burn and cut with a big fish on the other end. IMHO, it will definitely cut into the poly under speed and tension.

    I have cuts in my gunwale rubber from fishing line. So I would just be carefull. I guess the plastic might be harder then rubber though so you might be right. I will go and run some line around the wheelie bin tonight and tie it to the car and take off....... See if it burns in

    IMO, if the monofilament line is running fast enough, and hot enough, and enough tension to cut into the gunnel of a poly boat, the line will probably break anyway.

    If it's going out that fast, what's it going to do to your hands?, then if you attempt to stop it by laying it on the gunnel - snap.

    not that I've ever had it happen on a poly (never been in one), but I have done a lot of handlining.
    never heard of braid used on handlines, and anything is possible, I guess.

    regards
    Steve.
