Default TM Plug

Im looking for a GOOD TM plug for my boat. its a 2005 17 flat bottomed both that is used both for fresh water fishing and for flounder gigging and i have 2 trolling motors so i cant just hard wire one in. im on my third plug so far and its starting to fail now. looking for one thats going to last. when flounder gigging the plug gets kicked somewhat when my passenger gets excited but there is really no where else that i can mount the plug. just looking for a good one that will atleast make a full season without any problems. also where to get said plug. thanks!!!

Wherein the plug is it failing? I have used the same plug for up to 6 years without failure. And yes - I unplugged it after every use.

It is located on the bow in a plate that is at a 45 degree angle to the deck. i think that is part of the reason that it keeps wearing out.

Kenny: ill swing by and see you when i get home...im sure you can get me fixed up!

I talked to him the other night, and the problem is.. The ones he takes flounderin with him tend to beat it up when they get alittle antz.. I say make them pay for it each time.
