I am afraid you are right. I am spending WAY too much money getting my :mac19: updated.

I have a new 40 hp motor on the way. In the process of finding a small console for wheel steering.

I drew the line at 10k for a carbon mast.

It is probably going to cost me more getting this :mac19: right than what they would charge for the :tat22: IF it ever gets made.

Sounds like you're going to have one sweet :mac19: though. :wink:

My :mac19: is almost ready for the unveiling.

Tomorrow I take it from the fiberglass shop to the motor installer. Console is installed. Motor bracket installed to get it back from the transom.

I will post pictures once the motor is on there, hopefully in a week or two.

My plan is to use the motor to steer. I was thinking of being able to add something to the skeg that would extend about a foot below the motor to work as a more effective rudder. Any ideas?

I am doing all this in the hopes that production will soon begin on the :tat22:
That is how my luck goes. I will have the coolest :mac19: ever 8) Then the :tat22: I really wanted will go on sale :cry:

I would concentrate on the 19 and put the 22 out of your head. Sounds like the 19 is coming along great! Can't wait to see pics!
