Thanks for the tips gang, 1 item fixed. The speedo just needed to be toggled up a few clicks. Set it to a GPS app on a smart phone (that idea courtesy of Team Talk), reset the speed with the rocker switch, it now works great.
On the same lake run to play with the speedometer, I noticed that water was puddling around the shaft for the rudder. Wondering if some fresh grease in the zerks would stop that? It may also be coming in through the shaft packing, because there seems to be a lot of water in the forward center ski locker. Is that a do-it-yourself project? Thanks again
