Default Shout out to arcticfriends

Just want to give a shout out to Smitty for all the help and advice he's given me on rebuilding my bravo1. I've messed with drag cars for years, but this is my first time diving into an outdrive. After reading all the posts he's made I reached out to him for some help and he's been a wealth of information for me. Figured out there isn't really much to these things and I'll be on the water by next weekend rebuilding it myself.

Thanks, Smitty! You are a credit to the forum and other members.

Clark

Do you mean the cryo treatment he's had done to his lower gears? No.

Just some first-hand knowledge on repairing the drive and a good deal on a gear set.

Smitty hooked me up Sat. I was doing the Shore Dreams/Make a Wish Foundation event and he quickly repaired a shift cable problem for me. Thanks. I'm glad I could still participate. Took out 18 people over a 3 hour time span. Seeing the kids have that much fun was worth every penny of gas and time. We should all be very thankful for what we have and the health of our loved ones.

We'll give you a "pass" on this one since you were probably helping someone else!
