I have to replace one planer board this spring and was considering going to a Big Jon otter boat. I have a concern - in the event of breaking the tow line, how visible is the otter boat in choppy water when floating (I assume) motionless??

they are pretty big, and orange you cant miss them.  They pull pretty light, i have never broke the line using these boards!  seem to handle the rough water well!

I use one otter boat throughout the year and it has performed and continues to perform great.  This year, I plan to add a second otterboat  specially for early season and the derby.

If you are worried about visibility, put a flag on them.  Sailboaters have trouble seeing them on a calm day.  Don't ask how I found out.

They are the best board I have used, and Gambler is right about the flag thing. Just put a hole through the side and insert a little Flag using epoxy to hold them in place, so they can be more visible to other boaters...Bernie

I like the flag idea...didn't think of that one.  Bernie, what kind of flag are you using?  Something like a kid's bike flag?

I've got a set and use them routinely on Erie.  They work great.
