I have fished Valdez Alaska for past 13 years spending a month or more each year on the water. I have used several brands of pot pullers over the years and they have either burned out or broke. I have now used the Safe T Hauler for past 4 years and it is by far the best one I have had. Where I shrimp, the current runs strong and is challenging in setting and retrieving the gear. I run a string of 5 shrimp pots at around 400 feet deep and the Safe T Hauler handles it like a breeze. I am very impressed with how well it is built and how it performs. With the foot control, it is very safe and easy to manage the line. You guys did a great job of building a pot puller that holds up and works great.
