  twist the bungies
  Posted by: NateHanson on Feb-15-13 12:59 PM (EST)
 

I agree that it's tough to keep a split on the foredeck in some conditions, and if I'm parking and playing, I'll usually put a spare inside my stern hatch (a 210 2-piece just fits into the oval hatch of both my boats).

But when I want a split on deck I have good luck with twisting the end of the shaft in the deckline, so the shaft is completely encircled by bungee. Then get the blade under as many rows of deck bungie as possible. Getting it out takes a solid pull, and then slide it all the way down through all the bungies, but very doable in my experience.
