Minn Kota Deckhand 25
I have owned one for two years and had nothing but trouble with it until I made a modification to the spool. The anchor cord would constantly jump over the edges of the spool and get in a big mess requiring me to take off the cover and untangle it. I made a spool guard from pipe so the anchor cord could not jump over the edge of the spool and it has worked fine since then. It has to be a design flaw that Minn Kota knows about because the Deckhand 40 model ( which I also own) has this problem corrected.
Maybe the new DH 25 has this corrected but as of two years ago, it was not. I would be sure and check to see that the spool has a guard to protect the cord from jumping over the side before buying. You may have to remove the cover to check this but you do not have to remove the cover on the DH 40 to see it is corrected.
