Jeez you were paying a lot more attention than I was or was it when I went for a beer run?

Ya we missed a whole room in there with those I think they are callled "go fast" boats? A buddy of mine purchased a boat there and I went in with him to check it out. When I was there I looked around again and saw another room that we missed. Made the show a little better but it still sucked

Put your best foot forward!

Mine's got chromed plastic trim.

We installed the other two in friends' boats with no issues. The unit works great. On both boats, the switch is tied into the existing light circuit. You do need to run one additional hot wire to the unit to power the motor. The negative wire from the original harness is used for ground, and the positive wire from the original harness is used to provide the trigger to raise or lower as well as the power to run the light bulb.

They also come with a little shield you can move into position that blocks some of the light from blinding you. The units are really cool.

I just look at my situation with the Formula and don't know if I'll ever use it.

Yeah, they're way cool until they break... at 1:30am... when you're leaving a dock bar... and you are now illegal. Been there and done that on the last boat.

I'll keep my trusty manual one. Works every time. Bulb's easy to replace.

Eddie Marine has them and a manual pull up version as well. Thinking about getting one myself and will definitely have one on the new boat...
