Hows your Prop? (that sounds dirty)
The line was polyprop about 6mm and attached to it every 10m or so was a monofiliment with a hook baited with clumps of plastic roe. Also every 50m or so there was an 8 to 10cm float. I don't know how long the line was, but I would think they would put out many hundreds of metres at a time. We caught a bight of it and the diver told us it was tightly wrapped around the screw. The diver cost P25,000 about CA$53 or US$54.
The screw is healthy and yesterday we motored alongside to our first marina since March.
I need to revisit the idea of a line cutter on our shaft.
