Default was a good idea

Got a good dc motor, but just could not get it to reliably run and keep a load. Ordered another beefier motor but it was just too big to be practical. Tried a chain and a belt and the belt did much better but continually had issues on the reel gear. I guess out of frustration with numerous other issues popping up I ended up with an LP1200. Maybe in the future I will revisit this but for now I want to fish.

Now I just need to learn how to catch swordfish
