Keeping ropes from your prop
Just seen the latest Rustler 44 roll out of the factory.
It has a wire from the bottom of the keel to the bottom of the rudder to stop ropes getting up into the prop.
It still has a cutter fitted, but it seemed like a good "belt and braces" approach to me.
If I had one fitted perhaps I would not have had to go diving a couple of weeks ago.
It seems like such a good idea, but not common. Watching all the boats launching in Mylor this week I didn't see a single other one with such a fitting.
Is there a downside that I haven't considered?
I may be wrong, but I'm not confused.
