AKA, thank you sir.

88, Uhm....yes and no Did the torture test on the new batteries this trip. My speakers w/suctions cups stuck to the top of the motors worked awesome! We sat on the beach, by the fire and the remote worked from there!
Approx 9hrs of maximum pumptitude on battery #1. just to see how much it would take. Went to bed and everything still worked. Got up this morning and successfully started both motors off that battery.
Only let them run for a few mins though which evidently wasn't enough cuz the the coffee pot brewed 8 cups and killed the battery. DOH! Fired right up on #2.
Lost forward gear just as I was trying to jocky around and set both anchors last night too.
The lefty also. Autopsy tomorrow. Hopefully just cable adjustment. (yeah, right)
