Yup, have to admit the American version of Old Milwaukee is not as good as the Canadian version, more watered down than the Canadian kind even before the rain

Yeah... Really! It actually looks like they're getting ready to toss you a rope to tow that boat. What really happened, eh? :hmm:

John,
She was a little apprehensive at first but loves it now. The cold start lever tends to follow the throttle sometimes when going from reverse to Neutral. She is convinced that the boat is running faster with the new shifter. Her low speed adjustment was loose and docking became a challenge. I got it tighten up and the low speed adjusted so she can slow boat it to the dock.

The handle is a bit higher then that of the dual setup but all and all it is working out great. The shifter came from Dan Gano and the cables attached were brand new so that was a plus.
