    Default Repairs to Lady Luck

    Not saying the last trip to the inlet at St. Jís Creek was really nasty rough, but I did break two of my accessories there Friday evening in some breaking surf...my YakAttack Carbon Visipole snapped off at the mount and my one inch Ram ball snapped off in the gear track that holds my Hummingbird GPS/Sonar combo...I was able to repair the Visipole by removing the piece of the broken shaft, hacksawing the remaining shaft square and gluing the shaft into the base mount- lost about an inch or so of the height, so it wasnít that bad a repair...not so fortunate with the RAM mount- had to order a new ball mount for the base that fits in the gear track...no local source, so I ordered from the RAM factory outlet website- 2 business day free shipping- $14.99...next week the Lady Luck should be back seaworthy and ready to fish again...

    Bill’s Revo took a pretty good pounding, too...the other Snaggedliners went out into the inlet and turned around and came back inside...

    I love my RAM mounts but those gear track ball mounts have been a sore spot for me. Ive snapped off two of them just hand tightening them this year and had a couple more snap due to conditions. Seems like a weak point in an otherwise strong product line.
