My Parker came with downriggers..decided to get them working and try it....old wire is frayed going into motor and needs replaced...removed all the plate screws but, plate is on like superglue...keep prying with a screwdriver/sledgehammer until? or is there a trick I need to know? boat ownership is so much fun...:( Can someone tell me where to catch a tuna?? I want to catch a tuna....

    It's on there with silicone . You need to tap a flat blade in the crack after you pull the screws . Search cannon power cord replacement . Your going to need a special silicone that doesn't react to the composite case . Your also going to have to modify the hole the cord goes into . If you have problems finding the video of it PM me and I'll get the info .
    Might be a day or 2 cause I'm fishing tomorrow .
