Default Big Thanks to Mr Gadgets

For taking some time during his vacation to set the top end gear lash on one of my bravo's while I waited. I was near him on other business and he was kind enough to fit me in. I like the new way to set that lash. Makes lots of sense. Thanks again. Tom

Yep, he's the man. He did some work on my blackhawk drive a couple years ago. He will definitely be beefing up my drive on the Pantera if I ever put more power to it.

spoke to him on phone last year. very informative and patient. A rarity in the marine world. He refered me to Stern Drive Specialist in Syracuse, also a gentleman.

Dick (mr. Gadgets) is one knowledgable guy, and patient. He has one of my drives right now. He disassembled it while I was there, and showed me what needed to be done. Thanks again Dick. KS
