Does this pole slide all the way to boat floor? I don't see how my model is adjustable 6-7'???

How tall is your pole installed off floor?

It does not make it to the floor - there is a cross member near the top of the bottom portion of the pole.

It sits about 2 inches off floor. Not sure how to adjust like they say.

nice find at mcmaster - I paid $20 for mine from Skylon - what did mcmaster charge you for frieght? I have the red one installed.

Thanks. I see how this works now. The adjustment is made by sliding pole up and inserting a pin which rest on top of pylon. I will order a quick release pin from mcmaster or head to ACE.

I actually found mesh sleeving over in our machine shop at work. We use it to protect machined round parts. I order stuff from mcmaster all the time for work, so I was going to add it to an order for R&D purposes

McMaster is located in Elmhurst, IL, you can always go pick up. I never ordered from them outside of work so I don't know what they charge for shipping.

Sounds good to me. This boat will be in the water near Alpine Valley, 75mi north of your office. I see myself leaving work early every Fri...LOL.

Where do you dump yours in?

I winterized the boat 2 weeks ago. Changed the oil with VR1 20w50 and WIX 51060 oil filter.

I was tempted to start another oil thread

There won't be to many updates as I might be able to work on it once a month if that.

Double D / All,

For reg numbers, should I go one color, white, or 2 color white/grey. What is everyones opinion on this?

Also, the replacements you received, you had to lay black first followed by white on top? Sounds like a fun job!
