    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.

    yeah - I try to turn the steering wheel all the way to do the same for the steering ram but still popping it. Thanks Tho.Lanier rebuilt my drives for me and did the ram the last time. Great guy - builds really cool cat-based bass boats now

    Hey Martin,

    did you ever get your props dialed the way you want them?

    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
