I bought a set of paravanes from a commercial fisherman next to my boat. It was a good buy and I am glad I did.
I installed and tasted them on the water for three days and they exceeded my expectations. On the fourth day otw to kodiak one bent 90 degrees. Not fun until I was able to get some coverage at the baren islands.
I have made two new polls using 2.5 inches schedule 80 alum. Old ones were schedule 40 and had signs of rubbing in areas etc.
All in all I am very happy with the results and am glad I got that one off my list.
