electric planer mast

Recommended Posts

We have them on our charter boat. You do have the option to back off on the black tension knob and let the boards spool out under tension of the clutch . Works great so you can go do other things while the line is bleeding out. We tie a big knot in the end of the planer board line so that it can't pull out of the spool when all the line is let out. This way if you don't get to the reel in time before all the line comes out, it won't let go and go away. We then tighten up the  clutch knob and reel in about five or six wraps electrically to take the pressure off of the line going to the board.
