Default Cleaning while Fishing

When your fishing, things can get a bit messy (or at least they should!). Salt water wash down pumps help. But chunks of bait, coagulated blood, spilled drinks, etc can all quickly stain your non-skid, hull, and padding. If you let it sit even a little to long, your wash down won't be able to handle it. Or, if your like I was, a wash down is a luxury not afforded and everything had to be scrubbed before it got nasty.

We came out with our Combo Brush a while back and now I view it as a necessity when we fish. As the name implies, it's a combination of our Medium and Soft brushes. The soft bristles do a great job of picking up blood and grime while the medium bristles are great at digging stuff out of the non-skid. Things are often fast and furious on deck and you definitely don't want to be tripping over multiple brush heads or tools. And obviously, less dried blood means an easier cleanup when you get back to port.

Is it the only brush that will work? No. But I do think it's the best...just saying

The combo brush is the best idea from Shurhold, ever. I love mine. I would buy one with stiff bristles in the middle. too.

Where do people generally store these brushes on their boats while fishing? I'm in the process of building a Sea Vee and was wondering if there was that perfect place for one on the boat. Seavee can do just about anything custom so the thought crossed my mind. Thanks.

Ultimately, it's your boat and you should pick the layout best for you. I prefer under gunnel storage for brushes, boat hooks, and gaffs with rods staying up top and easily reachable. With a Shurhold system, all of those tools can fit on one handle, leaving you other choices for under gunnel options.

That's what I was planning. Seavee has an under gunnel storage option I was going to get specifically for the gaff and brush. It is so much easier to keep the boat clean on the water. We got back yesterday when it was 100 degrees and all I wanted to do is just flush the motors and rinse everything off and clean it in the morning but there was to much fish guts everywhere. You guys build a great product. My buddie's wife bought him a brush for $10 at Costco and it is a POS. I've had my shurhold for years and it works great.
