The last thing you want to happen is to be stuck out on the water for a days fishing and your foot pedal on the electric motor you own fails. It is reality that eventually these pedals will wear out with use and will need to be replaced at some point. You could take two approaches to this scenario.
1) Always have a spare and purchase a replacement watersnake Foot Control Pedal to keep on hand by taking the just in case approach and be well prepared should an accident occur or should you damage your foot controller in one way or another. This way if you are out on the water fishing away, perhaps even in a tournament, you can whip out your new Watersnake foot pedal and continue about your day on the water.
2) Simply just replace as required after being damaged or simply worn out.
