Now I have a piece of mind for arrowhead. I just replaced all the oil seals in the lower unit,. First time for me...had a few F bombs and some GD's in there too. But I muscled thru it and it all came together. It can get very frustrating at times when everything you do is new to you and you have know idea on what to expect. My hard work paid off and now I am smarter than I was Friday leaving work!!

I took her for a run and ran very good.
Today was the first time I got to sit back on the new back rests, and I have to say such a comfortable ride, elbow up on top of the gunnel, kicked back and cruised.

Don't let me fool you If you want to have some fun too my Merc 400 is sitting back there waiting to dish out some 180's. And the hawk is ready to fly!

What year did Tee Nee trailer go out of business? I just brought the trailer back to the house to start working on it and I just noticed the tag on the back of the trailer
