  1. Catalyst watch protector from Bestbuy. A little pricey but I've had it for over a year and it's still going strong. Waterproof as well.
  2. A post from their instagram account. This new Smart Link Battery Connector will be nice to have for powering lights and other accessories.
  3. Another cash grab by Old Town.
  4. Let me know your thoughts on this unit once you give it a test run. Thinking about pulling the trigger on it as well.
  5. I'm going to try and order the same thing you used above and make a new one, plus cut some extras.
  6. According to Old Town the pins are stainless. Am I allowed to post their email responses back on here? Not trying to get flagged or anything.
  7. Thank you for the link. Let me know how your drive held up. If it's not showing any signs of corrosion to the housing or pin, I'll be sure to apply the same tactics to the drive I have now or the new one if they replace it.
  8. Spoke with someone from Old Town. They're reviewing the claim and will let me know if they will warranty my PDL drive. The guy stated that the shear pins are stainless and doesn't know why it rusted. He did assure me they'd send more shear pins. Waiting on a final verdict.
  9. I sent them an email yesterday after I saw the damage. Probably will get a response back Tomorrow or Tuesday. I've only had the kayak for year and a half. This shouldn't be occurring so soon, if at all honestly.
  10. I'm sure sometime down the line they'll make a PDL drive that can withstand saltwater. Until then, I'll just have to continue to spray the piss out of it with Corrosion X or another brand.
  11. That appears to be exactly what it is. It's definitely bubbling up in areas and i bet if I scratched at it, it'd peel right off. It sucks that they didn't think of a better way to saltwater proof the drive.
  12. I hope it's covered considering they say it's fine to use in saltwater. I'll let you know what they say.
  13. Went to do a little maintenance on the PDL drive and upon removing the prop, the shear pin was rusted and the inside paint was starting to chip and corrode away. Contacted Old Town and am waiting to receive a response on the matter. I fish mainly saltwater and I spray it down after each outing.
  14. I upgraded mine and it definitely makes a difference.
