Re: Quick connect and disconnect trailer lights

Hi uebec

On that position the lights will not mark the end of the trailer at night...

And there is some logic on it...

Re: 26X Early Vs Late Rudder

Hi

I did that mod some time ago...

It is a significant improvement on the boat performance

But it is expensive if properly done.

You need to replace everything!!!

boomerang bar
gudgeons
brackets
rudders

About 1200 $
