    Emergency Stop

    Anyone know what what goes in the empty slot on my helm (white box)? The kill switch is on lower right of the picture by the throttle (blue box).

    2019 World Series

    Great team, but I’m disappointed for my Astros. Thought they could win at least one home game.

    Add a battery?

    This is my blue sea automatic charge relay install. I also changed out the 4 position switch (will go in the RV). I leave in the on position all the time - so far, no dead batteries. Before: After (I fabricated the holder for the M-ACR using a plastic utensil holder from Walmart):

    52” Ski Pylon

    Thanks for the feedback. Removed the flag for tubing and went with the standard size rope and everything worked great. Another plug for the PTM mirror - pics are facing forward and you can see the tubers in the mirror.

    Informational video: Quick clip use and removing, stowing, opening and covering easily.

    So, instead of only complaining about the design of the cover for swingbacks with keeper rails, I had local canvas/cover shop modify to go over the rails - plus the benefit of keeping the birds off the stern deck. Only added two snaps to the boat. All other connection points use buckles.

    Thanks Michiman - I took the forum's advice and built my last boat first (at least first Bennington).

    52” Ski Pylon

    Finally getting my 25 QSBW ready for the grandkids and tubing. I attached my 52” Ski Pylon, the rope and the tube, put in gear just to get the hang of it. It looks like the rope sits on top of the outboard. Once I get to plane (either empty tube or with me on it - had to test before I put...

    Great idea on the Swingback, but I have the keeper rails, a windscreen and 2 piece mooring cover which adds maybe 6 tie downs (don’t know why the cover couldn’t have gone over the rails) on the back. I start at the windscreen and then go to the bow or stern based on which piece I am working on...

    Wrapped my pontoons!

    Really sharp. I think I’ll keep Sharhide as long as I can, then switch over to wraps.
