Was watching a salt water fishing show, that had a measuring board that looked like a good idea.
The part you held the fishes head against folded drown flat when not in use.
It could be mounted on a deck without being a trip hazard.

Anyone seen these?

I want to mount it on the deck, with nothing sticking up to trip over.
The one I saw was hinged, laid flat till you want to measure.
Screw it down , always handy.

We have a check it stick mounted on the side of the boat at the back and one up front on the side where no one would be walking.
Guess it all depends on how your boat is set up.

I use a piece of tape measured to 11" on my crappie sticks
From the foam or cork of the top section of the handle
I can measure even before unhooking
Yes 11 inches is my minimum

Let me explain again. I have a center console with side by side seating just behind front deck.
I want to permanently mount a device on the deck , easy reach from both seats. Never have to reach for it or ask someone where they stowed last. Or have it blow out of the boat. I could mount a check it or a golden rule, but I can see someone tripping on the part that would sticks up .
I know there is one out there, but I may have to build it myself.
Thank for all the replies
Good luck
Mo

I understand what you are wanting and I have seen a couple. The ones I have seen are plastic and not very sturdy though. I think one is made by Rapala.

Edit: Academy has it online and it is only $6 so I guess at that price if it didn't last it wouldn't be a big deal to keep replacing it.

Mo,
You can Mount a Check it on the side of the boat.

You can put one on both sides and no one will trip over anything.

The one mounted in the back of my boat when I want to measure the fish it's like I'm holding the fish up to the wall.

Just trying to help. I don't see the Check It as a tripping hazard unless you mount it on your floor.

Ours is on the wall of the boat on the side.

Mo, this makes too much sense. I still subscribe to the old school. I buy one about every six months because it blow out, or get stepped on. Good luck.
