As many of you know, Ron aka BluNitro manufactures the liftsaver. He developed it because when loading and unloading his boat, it was damaging the xi5, the way it hangs off the front of boats. I hadn't bought one, because I have a deep Vee, and don't have trouble with it hitting while launching or loading. However, I did have this problem.
The custom cover the previous owner bought fit great with the old trolling motor. It wouldn't cover the front end with the xi5. Well, I put on an xi5, and now, my cover fits.
An added bonus is that I can retract it when pulling up to docks. Just figured I would let y'all know this solved one problem I was having in case y'all see that also. It was a whole lot cheaper than a new custom cover.
