Linking two flip-overs?
« on: Nov 08, 2019, 09:32 AM »
I would like to have the ability to link two Calm Scouts. I love the individual mobility of the the one-man, but sometimes it is nice to share a school of crappie and some beers.

Iím thinking two shacks face-to-face with the bottom poles almost touching, draping a tarp between the two, and securing with bungie cords. Anyone try something like this? Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Mark

Thanks! I was able to view the Clam Hub Link System, and the older Clam Trap Link System. I really wish that Clam made something like that to link two Scouts.

But, I really want to come-up with something generic enough to work with various flip-overs. It doesnít have to be pretty or perfect, just something that I could use when the need arises.

Put the two flip-overs in wind break position facing each other. Stake them down.  Put a tarp over them using bungee cords and a couple more ice screws to keep it from becoming an ice kite!!  :thumbsup: ;)2 :flex: :icefish:
My two favorite college football teams are Ohio State and whoever's playing Michigan!!!

Don't reel against the drag!!!

just set them up side by side you can hear everything through them that close, then just pass a beer under the shantys to each other lol.

That is why I need direct visual contact! Well, that and I want to share a homebrew keg.

Sounds like you need a hub shelter. Nothing wrong with having more than one ice hut.

Also sounds like I need an invite to fish on one of these days you are bringing a keg out on the ice
