I have a Sonic Cat Drive-Leg made by Sillette.
I am curious what others do with their drive leg when at anchor
I always raise mine when under sail or in a calm anchorage, but if there is a storm or strong swell or it's crowded, I sometimes leave it down at night for a 'faster getaway' (mine is manually raised and lowered - not hydraulic).
I get better sleep, but sometimes I feel this is stupid and I'm taking life off of the unit by leaving submerged longer than necessary. Does anyone else do this or do they raise it up religiously?
Also... has anyone ever found a collar style anode (behind the prop) for a Sonic without buying
it from Sillette? (pricey!)
