Re: Nettles clogging strainer

Nettles can be anywhere from Silver Dollar 5-6 inches diameter to 18-24 inches. nasty little pains in the ass. I am in the middle to upper Chesapeake and they move north over the summer as the salinity line moves north with less rain water into the Bay. Usually we canstill swin at a few of our regular spoits without them. They do present a problem in intakes of even the engine occasionally when they are think.
