Somehow, I think reminding Neil to fill his coolers is somewhat redundant...

Nice work Neil, looks fantastic. I'm gonna have to make sure you have all your tanks full, Charlie riding shotgun with you and both your coolers full to be able to keep you behind me on the water now.

thanks guys.......still giddy up here this morn........

Art Doc..........placement of the tension spring brackets were determined by the length i needed of travel for the motor to go stop to stop before the cable clamps would hit the motor clip pullies..........was speaking with Ray the other day, and for best results is too try and have the least amount of angle on the cable........reason i needed to mount the motor first before final placement........where i placed mine was the closest i could get........
the tension spring brackets i just assumed they were standerd issue, as i have the same that came with my Ranger.......i found these at the aomci meet in the spring, shiney things again........

It looks. Great Neil. Good job man. I’m always around if you want to get a test in. I just finished a boat tonight that needs tests in all ways too. Just let me know. I’ll be in the water this weekend for sure.

I'm so proud of you, I could just bust. I knew you were the one to bring her back.
It's kind of like marrying off a daughter..... Treat her right, Boy !!!! B)
