Default Alpha Mechanical Trim Indicators

Who makes a good Mechanical Trim Indicator for Alpha Drives?

Are they all the same as Bravo or is there a modification required?

Simply put...I have never rigged a performance offshore boat and I'm like a kid in a candy store going through this stuff...it can be a bit over whelming the first time in. I can make it fast...I just want to be able to safely control it!!

Bravo and Alpha use the same according to REX. You can check it out here. Don't know if you have a single or dual engine but here's a quick quote.
Indicator on dash about $250
Cables about $50 per
Activators that mount to trim cyl. $150 per
cable transom seals about $30 per
About $500 for a single and $700 for dual.

pages 84 and 85. Price sheet is at the top in the blue bar on each of those pages.

Yes..... there are some that are the same. I think Eddie Marine makes one that can be used with Bravos and Alphas. I have twins in a 242 and will be adding them in the future.

It's sort of confusing because when you start looking for them most are listed as "this for Bravo" and "that for Bravo"...it implies that they don't apply to any drive but Bravo.
