Sorry Neil if I was misleading.I did know about the cover. But it was a surprise when I got home last night. I did not know it was finished. Sad thing is I have to take it off and and shrink wrap it now.

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!
