When we go cruising to Desolation Sound, we often anchor out and make use of our tender, which is an Ocean Air aluminum RIB with 8 hp Yamaha 4 stroke. This tender (97 pounds) and motor (90 pounds) is ideal for towing in calm water but we wanted a pot puller which would double as a davit to mount the dinghy on the back deck of the Marlin. After a lot of searching we found a pot puller robust enough to handle the tender.
Quality Products Northwest in Port Townsend, Washington manufactures a variety of pullers and their Alaska Super Sport My-T-Hauler, rated at 250 lbs seemed ideal. After a few discussions with QPN, we agreed on options (e.g. reversing capability) and several modifications to make the puller a little taller and stronger.
Quality Products Northwest takes the time to produces a very high quality unit.
