Looks awesome... WD-40 on the adhesive removal on the dog house as well?

I just used a paint scraper and a small hammer to get under the old adhesive...then just used the paint scraper to get off as much of the old adhesive and foam as I could. I did not spend more than 10 minutes on the cleanup...was gonna sand but then was like..."forget it!"

2. Go under the boat and move the magnet around until it is attracted to the one inside the boat. If location is ok on the underside as well. Mark the spot to drill. I had to go under the boat a few times to adjust locations but worked out perfect.

Can't believe someone hadn't thought of this earlier. Wakemakers mentioned it when i was buying the ballast parts and also mentioned the fact that they have a utube video online showing how to do it.

Bought new prop. It was an agonizing choice - but I am a stickler for customer service.. after reading about props here and other forums and reviews. It came down to the Acme 541 3B or the OJ Force 4B... Great tech reviews on performance vs the 4B Force. But the customer service issue kept on popping every where I looked.

So I went with the OJ Force 4B which included a refurbish on my old Legend 3B.

Of course will post pictures when it arrives. The information here was stellar - the best of all the other sites I looked at. We'll see how I like it - I can always return it.

Why the 4B?

My OJ experience sucked. Except for the prop. That is awesome. But they lost a customer here.
