Otter boat half keel?


Recommended Posts

Anyone with any info on theses 2nd add on keels. I have noticed they sell with and without the weight at all? I won’t be pulling copper that often just would like to have them pull out more and turn better ?? Thanks

I have double keel otterboats with the second keel only half the weight. A full keel makes the otterboat sink  when it lays still in the water. A second keel without weight will give extra pull, but it is less stable and it tends to hang over a bit, specially when the second one is on the outside. You cannot buy half keels in a store. You have to order them from Big Jon.

Mine are 10 years old and stainless. the weight is there not only to counter the pull, but also to prevent them from capsizing when there are big waves
