Home made G-Force Trolling Motor Cable/Handle
« on: August 21, 2017, 06:19:48 PM »

The Good Vibrations starter handle is $7.98 at Lowe's. The green jacketed 1/16 stainless steel cable is about  .40/foot from Tractor Supply, and the Crimp ferols and washers were about $2 from Lowe's. So I have about $12 invested in my G-Force TM handle.

Neat job there Jim.  I was looking at the reservoir rig the other day and noticed the rope needs to be repiaced.  Might do that on the Ranger.

Thanks guys! I actually installed the cable a while ago and it makes a tremendous difference in deploying and retrieving the TM, even with the stock handle. I shopped around a bit for the handle and even after finding it, shopped some more for the lowest price. Keeping the cost below half of the TH Marine model became a challenge.  ;D
