    Hey Capt. Dan, how often do you meet? I just signed a contract to buy a house in Burnt Store and I need to make some fishing friends.

    My biggest fear is that when I die my wife will sell my guns and fishing rods for what I told her I paid for them,

    Like you Capt Dan during this down time I had an RHODAN GPS anchor installed on my boat. I am really looking forward to drop it in the water to set it up. Looking forward to not have to re anchor 3 to 5 five times in deep water to get set up on a coral head or ridge. To cold and windy for me to enjoy being on the water even to set the RHODAN up. There is a utube video on it being used on a Freeman Cat.

    Nevermoor- we have a once a month meeting currently as bass pro shop in ft myers. Check out SWFLFISHINGCLUB.COM for more info or call me direct at 239-878-4736 Our next meeting is set for Feb 22nd. Come check it out.

    Larry- Ive seen the video of the Rhodan and have heard great things about it. It definitely will change the offshore fishing game. Which lb thrust did you get? Im curious to see and hear some of your experiences with it..
    My offshore boat is a 26 Glacier Bay and Ive toyed with the idea of adding the rhodan system, but it is pretty steep for the 36 volt system. Maybe one day

    Thanks, Capt. I'll see you on the 22nd.

    Here is the choice i made. I talked to them at a couple of shows and on the phone. They said the 24 volt model is good for up to a 24 FT. boat witch covers me. The cost was under $4 grand for motor, batteries, misc. material and labor for the installer. It would have been more it i went with higher end batteries , i got mine from Sams group 27 I could have gone to 31 or GEL cell . I figure let me get some time on the water first to see how the 27`s hold up. I will be posting how they are holding and how the anchor lock is working.
