Re: Crab Pots, friend or foe

Don0190,

I think you might change your tune a bit if you ever have to jump into the nettle filled water to dislodge a crab pot that has somehow mysteriously grabbed your rudder or keel.
Of course it is best if you can avoid cutting the line of some hard working bayman's equipment. Then again, if the line is wrapped around your prop it might be good to have a nice sharp knife.
