Lobster Pots
The bottom is first made which consists of about five staves of wood, each about 5 x 11 inches wide, they are placed about 1 1/2 ins apart to allow water to pass freely through them. Next comes the powels which are of ash, and 1 1/2 inches in diameter. In length they are three feet. A hole is then bored in each side of each end, and a hole in each side of the centre. The powels are then bent across them to form arches. There are also three horizontal pieces of 1 1/2 diameter placed one on top and one on each side which help to keep the net in place. Now in each side at opposite ends a square is left bare so that the throats can be put in. The throats are made of a heavy wire ring, which is about 8 or 9 ins. in diameter, and the net is made in the shape of the ring, and attached to the pot in such a way that when the lobster goes he can't possible get out. There is a throat in each end at opposite sides. The pot is kept balanced by a stone in each end
