Thats the only place i go, ill be there mamorial weekend, keep an eye out for the brown trout
thats why it works good the old fuel tank with the insulation inside of it and then the bottle inside of that helps keep the bottle temp down in the summer and the clamp is on the end of the section of the fuel tank (only about 18" long) its real easy to change bottles.
If your down at fishers this summer i will look forward to meeting you
Good deal farmer john, i have heard alot about you from the bostick and seen alot of your machines on the forums but still have not meet you. Thanks for the input. What is the purpose of a bottle warmer? Doesnt juice like to be about 70 degrees? I have seen guys keep there bottles in the water at the river which isnt a bad idea
something that you need to think about, When was the last time your boat sat level in the water? and on the launch the bow rises and then exceleration moves the liquid to the back, I run mine at a slight angle and under the seats so as to keep it out of the sun, and the mount is an old fuel tank that i cut up and put a 1/4" foam insulation inside it then i just slide the bottle in it and clamp it down.
Got it handeled 2" rise

If you look at the basic stainless steel bottle brackets on this page, the front mount has a riser that might be around 2". If you can get any angle at all where you're trying to mount them it will probably be fine.

They don't need to have too much angle, 15-20* is usually ideal. The tube should be fairly close to the bottom of the bottle anyway.

On a standard bottle you want the front tilted up with the decal on top, the siphon tube is bent at the bottom towards the floor.
You guys using a progressive system for your boats?
I never seen a nos bottle monted standing straight up, but is it ok to mount it level?
lupo, your thinking is correct, the bottle should be mounted on an angle unless it's been modifed to be mounted standing up.
I can mount it to the seat pad but i thought the bottle had to be tilted up so i made my bracets that way, it wont fit in there at a angle but will fit in there level
