Thanks for the picture of the control handle. It look like a nice install! How smooth of a control is it for turning side to side or twist to change elevation?

Regards, Kevin

Slightly different take. I have the same spot as the OP. There have been a couple of times when the sun set before I was able to anchor. Traveling up the ICW in a canal, it was nice to be able to lock the spot in place on a spot a head of me and use it to see in an otherwise pitch black canal. By adjusting the friction clamp, you can move it but it will hold position when you let go. Sometimes you don't have that third hand to spare.


I'm tired of fast moves, I've got a slow groove, on my mind.....
I want to spend some time, Not come and go in a heated rush.....
