I've scaled back my expectations of what I really need and I've got one backup reel so far. IF I get on a long-range trip, that will be my best classroom. And you're all correct, I'd rather be fishing than making some green-crusted blob work that some bozo brought to me to "have a look at".

Well, just to follow up . . .
Not only did my ATD50w go for a one hour swim this winter, so did several other guy's reels!
Yeah, it was a GREAT trip.
Having everything I needed, it was simple work to open, clean/dry/check everything in 2 (yeah, someone sadly said "Jim can you do mine too?" and I did) ATD's in the galley after dinner.
Neither had any issues at that time, and mine, opened up two weeks after I got home, was still functioning perfectly. I couldn't believe that even spool bearings were fine. (That's why I use penn synthetic oil.)

I can't imagine going on a LR boat without the tools to effect repairs on reels!!

to revive an old thread.....what do you mean when "you are not getting into a skiff again" and "your reel going swimming".....Bill

It may not be very productive,
but it's sure going to be interesting!

If you're getting spooled you have 3 choices, hope your knot holds and the fish stops,deploy a skiff and chase it or clip on a back up rig and throw it over the side. Not many boats bring skiffs like the used to since the equipment is so much better now but some do.
