Rothmar posted this suggestion on another thread but I am starting another here.  

I know this has gone off topic, but like what Max is suggesting. I'll pay for postage to get it to Australia, try and put a sword on it, fit it with some SS rings while I have it, and then pass it on to whoever wants to attempt to hurt it next. Would make for an epic thread....
I like the idea.  PM me your address.  I want to use it in June on my spring trip to Mexico though.  What is your sword fish season?  I heard from Ted "maxdoubt" he likes the idea also.  Dominick

Leave the gun.  Take the cannolis.

 Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he will sit in a boat all day drinking beer.

Forget about all the reasons why something may not work. You only need to find one good reason why it will.

Okay, for the record, I caught, Dorado, Rooster Fish, Yellow Fin Tuna, Striped Marlin and a Wahoo.  When I say I caught I don't remember who picked up the rod with the Tank on it.  Joe (my fishing buddy from NJ) and Wayne (El Pescadore) brought in fish with the Tank while we were all on the boat.  I wish I would have cataloged the fish with weights but I did not.  Here's hoping whomever catches a fish records the date and weight of the fish.  Let's keep this going.  Put in your reservations.  I want to use it June 7-14, 2016 then again in Late October 2016.  Dominick

I could not find these pictures in my computer.  I finally found them in my dropbox files.  This is the first report with photos showing the Tank in action.  The credit for these photos goes to Wayne (El Pescador) he's good with a camera.

Here is some goofy guy doing his Titanic imitation on the wrong end of the boat.

The ride out was magnificent.

Plenty of porpoises.

Here is the Tank waiting for some action.

Unhooking for release.

Cheering for the Tank.  Also for myself.  It was great fun.

Making a fast exit from the power of the Tank.

This Dorado was caught by either Joe or Wayne.  We caught 2 about the same size on the Tank.  I took this fish out of the box for a photo.

One more.  My personal best Rooster Fish (Pez Gallo).

Dominick,

I can look over our fishing photos and provide the date & approx. size of the Rooster Fish, Striped Marlin and Dorado you caught.  The wahoo is iffy, I remember us taking about using it for BAIT Grin.

Also, it's El Pescador for my AT.com site name, NOT   El Pescadore  as you have it, I'm not Italian!!!!!

There are numerous tanked 113's with the same or very near the same internals, but there is really only one TANK and it was built by Sal.

Wayne there are only two kinds of people in the world, Italians and those who wish they were Italian.  And don't give me the northern Italian speech, Germany is too far north to be Italian.  Dominick

I can't wait to see the rings Rothmar is going to put on the Tank.
I need to get some fish on Mine and lay down the Heavy Metal for once.
