You jerk! You took my boat lol j/k My friend was looking at it but obviously didn't pull the trigger! That is going to be a nice rig for the wac/ck/cr areas! My tunnel HATES steinhatchee and HSB because of all the floating grass. It would always pile up on the intakes and overheat. Winter lows won't scare you as much anymore! haha Good luck and enjoy!!

I figured there'd be a lot of people looking at it. I was ready with cash in hand from the sale of a vehicle so I jumped on it quick because I knew it wouldn't last long at that price. That floating grass is a real pain but the jack plate should help put it up in cleaner water. Regardless floating grass is a real PITA for just about any boat!

Jim...I had a sneaky suspicion that was you :wink I've read a bunch of your posts/threads (not all 2,500 of them, but a lot), and every time I drive by your house with the gheenoe out front, I think to myself: "I wonder if that's the guy that posts on the FS Forum". I drove by yesterday and saw your new rig and thought, dang, he's upgrading :wink I literally live less than 2 miles south-ish of you and I cut through that neighborhood several times a week, almost daily.
I like the new rig, and definitely figure out what's up with the jack plate. I've been taught to believe that the tunnel is about useless without a hydraulic jack plate...and vice versa. As it has been described to be me by a relatively well-known boat designer and also by a prop engineer, at the lowest point, the cavitation plate needs to line up with the top of the tunnel and at the highest point (while underway), the centerline of the prop should line up with the top of the tunnel. Anywhere outside of that range is inefficient and counterproductive (or dangerous if too high). Enjoy!!!

You're sonny's neighbor.
Jim, the switch came with the wiring harness. I forget where I ordered it but do a search on the internet of your brand and you can find it.
