Click on the photos and it take you to a web site for shoes , what possible use is a web site selling shoes

Anyway is rope a real problem, I would ahve thought a plastic bag round the water intakes more of a worry.

bizarre! I only get the marine website...Although when I asked for fitting instructions, the reply was that their systems are down...down at heel maybe.
Try homepage.

Last Sat I caught some loose rope 10 feet from the trailer when recovering with a bit of side wind, so over the side chest deep to stop drifting onto rocks with no power. I've not spotted plastic bags yet - perhaps Manx waters are comparatively clean.
Lots of pots in the harbour though, with tiny floats

I saw this in 2005 but it seems to have disappeared from the quickwater's website now.

For some reason the vid of it working is still up though- http://www.quickwater.com.au/Movies/quicKutter-4mb.wmv

£117 or £247 with hardened blades - claims to cut steel wire due to the shaving action rather than scissor.
