Keegan's Trap Net Support.
The cables are anchored at each end, the slack being taken up by block and tackle. The support is gotten up for the purpose of holding trap nets on reefs and places where piling cannot be driven, but can also be used on any kind of a location.
At the end of the season, the piling can be taken up without much difficulty and placed on the beach in the vicinity of the location, where they can be scraped and painted or tarred, and used again for several seasons.
This is a great advantage, as, at the present time the life of a pile is about two years. Every ten feet on the web in the lead and hearts, a shove-down pole is made fast and from the bottom of the pole on each side a guy line leads down through a block at the foot of the pile, and is made fast ont he pile above high water. The shove-down pole is also made fast at the top to the cable.
At the corners of the hearts, pots and spillers, three piling are placed in position, so as to support the cross cables.
The weights and anchors can be made of boulders or any material having sufficient weight for the purpose. The weight of the anchors and foot weights, and the distance and spread of the piling, will depend upon the location and current
