Damn Boys!!!! Looks like I need to quite selling parts and get out in the shop and work on my boat! You're making some good progress there Mr Cig. Keep it up!

I'm with Brian, I like where that x ended up.

Now back to the T-shirts... Kurt? Fred? WTF?!?!?!

Looks like we're dealing with different parts. How do yours attach?

Ask Fred or Kurt about the shirts... I'd like a few myself!

Thanks,
Brian
Yap those are the ones I had too. I looked at modifiying them but they were old already and time to be replaced.
I'll let you know how the new ones work out and take some pictures of the installation.

Hey Zero Patience,

Can you snap a picture of your trim actuators? Looks like yours are the same as MrCig's. Just curious how they're set up.

Thanks!
Brian

Lofty,

What's yours looking like? Got the motors in yet? Konrads installed? Pictures?

My last coat of Awlgrip went into the bilge tonight. Damn, that stuff is hard on the brain cells. Time to start rigging.

Cheers,
Brian

Brian,
Still dressing the motors down and doing rigging work. I'll snap some pics this weekend and post up the progress. Yeah that Awlgrips' got a kick to it for sure! Just think of the money you'll save on beer....
