How many of yall use a trough rather than table, what are the advantages if any.

I thought maybe the trough may make skinning a little easier.

depends what table my wife did not think the kitchen table was a great idea true story heater died in the shop and it was like -35C outsidde I didn't think she was off until 9pm but it was 6pm. still have not recovered.
but to answer your question a small flat table is what i use but I have only skinned about 20 in the last two years

Trough works real well. Hanging by the tail and case skinning works ok also, just rough lifting them up that high unless you have a boat crank or something to hoist them up, lol.

I use a table. I can see one benefit from using a trough and that's when working around the sides.

What are the dimensions of the "V". 5", 6", 7"???????

creek, mine is deep. 1x10 or 12 less than a 45 degree angle. stands about waist high, but that would be about up to your knees, so you'll need it higher than mine, lol.

Sponge Bob, are you talking about 1, 2 or 3 2x4s on each side? I imagine were talking 36" long.
