Once in a while that lift assist gets caught on the cord and watch your fingers as it flies up when freed.

Are you a fellow lift assist hand smasher?  I did it on my buddies boat, man that hurt.

got me good one early morning and watch that demon like a hawk now.

I'm still holding out hope the quest is all they are saying it is in the few reviews that are around. Just put 3 new batteries in and I get about 7 hours trolling 1.8-2mph and the claim of 5 times that with a brushless motor is crazy to me and would make going lithium only a weight saving spend and yes more charges over the lifetime.
My current terrova has been pretty bullet proof though and I've sat in one spot in a hurricane looking at the same log for hours on the spotlock casting to a school of perch.

 Mcully I get 7 hours trolling out of my
Terrova and my batteries are 3 years old
 Of course your boat is much heavier

Yeah, I'd say I get about 6 or 7 hours out of my setup constant trolling when using it in tandem with my kicker. 1.8 to 2.2 mph.

With my lithium I would get 2-2.5 months out of my Ulterra.

just north of the log cabin with the hoist in 18' on the west shore and the flag mast flag pole on the south point with the big pine tree on the east shore. Can't miss it
