Has anybody ever removed the mounts that hold the speedo pickups from the transom? I have a tiny crack forming form one of the screw holes and I'm curious about what to expect before I start taking anything off of the hull.

I changed my pitot tubes out for the ones they sell at DIM last week. It was a piece of cake. There's nothing underneath. I had to scrape off some silicone, but otherwise, it was just flat gelcoat.

Did the same thing as kpickett to my own boat some time ago. Just remember to use some sort of sealant on the holes when you put it back together. I think I used white bathroom caulking..... but hey, it's paintable! ;)

Did mine last week with the skidim pitots work much better than the original airguides.Clean up the area well and use plenty of sealant.Piece of cake.
