How to Install an EVA Foam Fish Ruler on Your Boat

Are you ready to take your fishing adventures to the next level? Installing an EVA foam fish ruler on your boat not only enhances your fishing experience but also ensures accurate measurements of your catches. This simple guide will walk you through the quick and easy steps to equip your boat with this essential tool, helping you to comply with fishing regulations and track your personal bests efficiently. Let’s get started on this handy addition to your fishing arsenal!
Surface Preparation: Start by making sure the area on your boat where you plan to install the fish ruler is spotless and dry. A clean surface is essential for the adhesive to stick properly. Remove any grime, oil, or moisture thoroughly.
Measure and Plan: Choose the perfect spot for the fish ruler. It should be a flat, smooth area that’s easily accessible for measuring your catch. Popular spots include the gunnel, the deck, or near the cooler.
1.Peel and Stick: Most EVA foam fish rulers come with a self-adhesive backing. Gently peel off this backing to reveal the sticky side, and try not to touch the adhesive with your fingers to keep it clean.
2.Alignment: Carefully position the fish ruler at the chosen spot. Many anglers like to place the ruler along the length of the boat to make it easy to see and use.
3.Application: Press the fish ruler firmly onto the surface, starting from one end and gradually moving to the other to prevent any air bubbles. Ensure you apply consistent pressure throughout to secure a strong bond.
4.Smoothing Out: Once the ruler is in place, smooth out any air bubbles or creases. You can use a roller, or your hands will do just fine, pressing down to make sure it adheres well to the surface.
5.Trimming (if necessary): If the ruler extends beyond the needed area or needs to fit around certain boat features, trim the excess with a sharp utility knife or scissors. Cut carefully to maintain a neat appearance.
6.Final Inspection: Look over the fish ruler to make sure it’s completely secure, with no corners peeling up or air pockets underneath. It should lie flat and smooth against the surface of the boat.
7.Curing Time: If you can, let the adhesive set by keeping the ruler and boat away from sunlight and water for 24 to 48 hours. This helps the adhesive develop a stronger bond to the boat.
Always follow any additional instructions from your fish ruler’s manufacturer, as there might be specific details for optimal installation. Note that the color of your fish ruler might vary from batch to batch, and the actual color may differ from what’s shown on your screen due to monitor settings.
