Notice the offshoreonly sticker on the port side of the transom (that's the left side of the back of the boat for some of you, and you know who you are!!). How many of you have seen that one much less had one on your boat?!?!?!?!?!?!?

Hey Foul, you may want to bring your drive all the way into the upright position before pulling the boat out of the water!! That skag saw some better days
Oh, and I remember the sticker.

I got that drive for a song... remember this is a 1987 boat... came with an alpha that I blew up twice before picking up that used bravo cheap. I've since toasted it and replaced it with a 1999 model.

I can litterally leave the drive all the way down and tow the boat anywhere without it even coming close to the ground. Tall trailer... I have about 12" from skeg to ground in the down position. Cheap insurance!!! But it sure is a loooong ways to the ground if you wanna hop over the gunwhale when it's on the trailer. You can see the step ladder on the starboard side if you know what you are looking for... 8' ladder barely reaches the top of the gunwhale.

Like my homade/modified tabs? Thru bolted and 5200 to the transom. Works like a charm.

This picture was taken on the same day. It was cold and windy on Spring Lake (Grand Haven) but we had to test the new prop!!!
