    Heres my JW Watersnake, been out 3 times works well, in anchor mode sometimes winds up the cable then it beeps I have seen minn kotas do it as well, I galled thread on height clamp from doing it up tight and JW immediately sent whole new bracket I cleaned shaft whith brake cleaner to remove slippery film so don't have to do clamp up as tight.

    Well my back and hips are now screaming at me when I get back to the ramp at around 18:30 19:00 After a 35 odd km trip (74 K round trip) home in the dark and cold (around 11* to 12*) from the reef . sometimes I am stuffing around just off the jetty at the ramp for more than 10 mins trying to get everything working so I can get out of the tinny instead of ending up in the drink .
    So I now have this and even just sitting in it in the backyard I can tell from the seating position it is a game-changer will test over the weekend ......

    Went out today to test it out funny thing is blowing 15 knots in Paynesville go over the back lake 8 kilometres away glassy calm very comfortable very happy.
    Department of name changes just a slack as ever all the pelicans have killed the tea tree on what used to be a point it is now 200 yards shorter than it used to be this is supposed to be a prized nesting area for a bird I think they call it the little turn only half the size of the normal pointy wing turn your see around the lakes imagine if I went over there cut a few trees down with the chainsaw.
