RETRIEVAL RATES
THE 1/4 AND 3/4 HP CONTINUOUS DUTY MOTORS RUN AT 1150 AND 3450 RPM. AT 3450 RPM THE 25:1 GEAR BOX IS TURNING THE SPOOL AT 138 RPM. THE SPOOL WILL TAKE UP 2 FT PER ROTATION (APPROX.) WITH AN EMPTY SPOOL, AND WHEN FULL OF LINE THEY WILL TAKE UP (APPROX.) 3 FT OF LINE PER ROTATION.
138 X 2 FT = 276 FPM, 138 X 3 FT = 414 FPM
(1/4 HP BELT DRIVE REEL = 350 FPM)
OPTIONAL 1800 RPM, 1 HP (80 AMP, INTERMITTENT DUTY) MOTORS ARE AVAILABLE WITH A 15:1 GEAR RATIO = 120 RPM ON SPOOL
120 X 2 FT = 240 FPM
120 X 3 FT = 360 FPM
NOTE: KEEP IN MIND THESE NUMBERS ARE ‘NO LOAD’. THE AMOUNT OF WEIGHT BEING PULLED WILL ADJUST THE SPEED OF RETRIEVAL. THE HEAVIER THE CATCH, THE SLOWER THE SPEED AND THE HIGHER THE AMP DRAW.

Waterman Industries states that customers have caught large fish (500+ Blue fin Tuna) with the regular belt driven 1/4hp reel, but it takes some time to land the fish. Any of the direct drive reels will be able to land these larger fish with greater ease of operation and less time for the landing. Commercial fisherman prefer landing the fish in the boat as soon as possible to preserve the quality of the meat.

Manufacturers Recommendation for Large Fish:
The 1 HP Direct Drive reel with either the 50:1 or 60:1 ratio (This will make the retrieval very slow, but will give you the torque to “horse” the fish). It is very important to use the aluminum spool and 2 to 3 spring arms mounted together to prevent them from splitting.

WARNING

This motor is not waterproof!
We at Blue Ocean Tackle WILL NOT be held responsible for motors that have water damage.

If the motor is exposed to the elements, IT IS IMPORTANT TO COMPLETELY SEAL THE MOTOR. Coating the motor casing with enamel paint and or trying to seal the motor with a silicone sealant, ONLY DELAYS MOISTURE and CONDENSATION from entering the motor cavity.

The best method, we have been told, is to APPLY SILICONE to the MOTOR CONNECTIONS and USING a TWO- PART MARINE EPOXY. APPLY TWO of THREE HEAVY COATS to the MOTOR CASING and or the GEARBOX.

Waterman Industries Trap Hauler Recommendations

As those of us who make our living on or around the water are aware, fighting corrosion problems in electrical systems is often a never-ending problem. We are giving you these recommendations with the hopes of minimizing the inconveniences of costly down time.

Wiring Recommendations:

When you install your electric trap hauler we recommend that you use the following wiring guidelines:

1). Use a multistrand marine grade copper battery cable.

2). For ½ hp and ¾ hp motors use #4 battery cable if runs are less than 10 feet . If longer than 10 feet use #2 battery cable.

For 1 HP motors use #2 battery cable if runs are less than 10 feet. If longer than 10 feet use #0 Battery Cable.

At your battery terminal connections use a protecting sealer to prevent corrosion.

Caution

Never operate your trap hauler with a weak battery.

This can permanently damage your motor winding.

Motor Corrosion Recommendations

To reduce the possibility of corrosion in your motor there are several options that can be used. These are the ones that we recommend.

If you have chosen to purchase a sidewinder model it has already, by its design, been isolated from direct contact with spray of water run-off but can be vulnerable to condensation. When mounting your sidewinder it would be best to seal the bottom perimeter of the box and any penetrations made for wiring with silicon.

If you have chose to purchase our trap hauler with stainless steel backing plate it is likely that your mounting requirements have left the motor exposed to the elements. It is important to completely seal the motor. Painting your motor with enamel paint, or trying to seal it with silicone may only delay the moisture and condensation form entering the motor cavity. Often a partial seal may trap more water than it keeps out. The best method, which we have been told of, is to apply silicone to the motor connections and then with a two-part marine epoxy paint apply tow or three heavy coats to the entire gearbox and motor.

CAUTION

Never cover your trap hauler with a tarp or cover between trips or in the off season. This will create the effect of a sauna and will cause corrosion if your motor is not completely sealed.
