Smarten, thanks for the pictures that came out great! I know what you mean about the weather.... It's either been raining or overcast and 75 degrees. The girls wouldn't even get in the water this past weekend because it was too cold, but that just meant more surf time for me
We finally mounted the struts on Sunday and I'll have to get some pictures when I get back to the boat. We tig welded the strut mount brackets to a 5" circular plate with 8 mounting screws around the perimeter, it's rock solid now!
We still have to mount the latch, but I bought the pull cord style latch that mounts underneath the sunpad.
