Tripped over them this morning trying to get to my office in the dark! They must have shown up Fri PM. I should learn what the light switch is for.

Thanks Oliver

Any if you guys having problems losing the seal on your steering ram? I think clams or barnacles are getting in there and f-ing it up. I have replaced two seals in six months.....anoying since I have no lift or trailer. Suggestions ? Rubber boots perhaps?

I have not had a problem with the steering ram. I have had to reseal both trim rams at least once. Now I always lift both drives all the way when parked. Keeping the seal serface of the shaft inside the ram assy.

I had my last boat which was a 38' Baja on 12,000 lb Hydrohoist. It would almost lift my Harley but not quite. Ended up selling it to my neighbor. Keeping my eye open for a deal on a bigger one.

brought my props to a buddy of mine to measure and figure out why they dont fit my asd8 shafts....he measured the interior of the new props and they are about an 1/8th smaller. Are there skinny shafts and fatter shafts on arnesons?

sorry I missed you a few weeks ago. I am in Palm Beach now but leaving Tuesday 5-1. I have an appointment Monday in Delray @ 9:00am. Might be able to swing for a look around noon, are you available? I brought some Harley photos with me including some new custom adjustable floor supports I had made. They really improve the cockpit split floor system. If you have the time call my cell @410-726-2612. If not I'm coming back in mid-May for last trip of the season. Regards, Lee
