Not that you asked for my 2 cents, but I would look at the swirl away style strainers with the single knob removable lid. I have had the Teague style with the multiple allen head lid screws, and they SUCK, when you are on the water and need to clean your strainer baskets out. Just a thought

Yeah, that's a big no. I can't believe you have to unscrew all those allens to clean them. Maybe some people don't encounter seaweed where they boat?

The only problem with the single Knob strainer is that they have a issue with leaking under extreme pressures. Just my Two cents.
