Re: PS34 with Lofrans Tigres
Our Tigress was probably over 35 years old when the attachment legs finally failed. It still ran like a top, though.
I'd advise regular disassembly, cleaning and greasing of the drum and gypsy, and once in a while pull off the motor cover to check (and clean) the connections. Definitely, use the freefall feature to get your anchor to the bottom swiftly.
