Love the Axis ballast system except for this one issue. On the delta we deal with a lot of water plant life. About once a month we suck in a piece of a plant which puts a damper on the fun. Not a show stopper, but it certainly slows us down. The only way to remove the debris is to remove it while on the trailer, unless you're man enough to swim under the boat with a screw drive and dig is out.....I'm not.
Anyone have a clever solution to prevent this from happening? I was thinking about installing screens. Even if the screen clogged, the problem should be resolved by turning off the pump and planing out the boat. Any other ideas?
