Damn its only December 4th and I am going stir crazy....
Glad you mentioned this. I need to do the same. Thanks....

I have been up in under the bow all evening measuring cable lengths for the battery relo and addition of a second. Got the new partition in place after a little persuasion with a rubber mallet.

I'll post up when I get the final draft. I had everything in temporarily today to get measurements for cables. I am placing one battery under the passenger seat and the other right in behind the passenger on port side up against the hull. I am trying to leave as much room as possible in there for my crap. I am putting both batteries in vented boxes, and installing an isolation system for a small amp and ahead unit on the auxillary. I tell ya', after doing this, and considering the fact that I am running only a head unit and a small amp for the four cabin speakers, I would likely not worry about the isolation setup. I'd just use two batteries (one crank and on deep-cycle), using the deep battery for tunes and charge it up when I get home (as I do anyway). I'm already too far into it now to change courses (for all practical purposes). Damn cable is a pain for the long runs. I am looking at 2/0 AWG for about a 14' run (starter up through the foot rest, then back around to the crank battery under the passenger seat). Lest forget the ground cable as well. Not my preference but it's the path of least resistance for routing the cables. The other runs are short but still need the same compatible 2/0 for the entire circuit, other than the amp (8 GA) and speakers (12 GA). Also need fuses to install in-line as well (2/0). I have it all laid out in an Excel sheet as far as the paths (point to point and length for each), cable size, and connectors for each end of each cable. Easy enough. A simple install really, just time consuming for me.

mgorczak1..is your bushing like the one in the pic?


Also replaced the rubber pad under the port side rear tower leg.What a P.I.T.A !!! I had to remove the back rest on the port side then drill a 2 inch hole in the inner fiberglass where the backrest bolts on to access the tower nut..I was nervous drilling the hole but,it all worked out.
Hey Too_tall is that a model number on that unit?

Mike

I dont know what the numbers mean on the white sticker.

Stamped on the side of the assembly is 3950210
Might want to print the pics out and bring them with you to teleflex.

Not sure how you guys justify residing in that type of winter climate. I worked in the northern tier US for 13 winters over the course of years. I knew I was headed south when the job was done.

.
I have been in Minnesota all my life and have no desire to live elsewhere. As much as I love summer in my boat, there is so much to do in the other seasons if you are hearty enough to enjoy it. I would never want to give up ice fishing and snowmobiling. Deer hunting in the snow is outstanding. I can deal with the extreme cold much better than the extreme heat. I can always put more clothes on.

That's...good for you to be able to enjoy the cold..have a few friends up their that would never move for the same reason. I love MN, have a number of customers up there... Hard not to enjoy all the lakes just about everywhere... The St. Croix is just gorgeous in summer.

I'm with cloaked... I just like summer more now, would need to refit for winter activities, and with this great economy, I have to be picky and I choose summer stuff, wife and I love to travel to Cancun during winter....so no more $$$ for winter activities... like the song goes, my wife and tequila make me crazy...

Actually wheel is a slang as is prop in professional terms it is either a propeller or a propulsor really no debate on that . The site that you posted did have some good rule of thumb empirical suggestions, but actual propeller design theory is somewhat more involved as far as the calculations are concerned.
