    Thats why I am building my 3ram trim 15" mid with the early EFI cowl and hoped up Bridgeport, hopefully I can keep it light.
    I will set the Mirage up for running the delta with Kevin, Rufus and the rest of the gang up there.
    Someday I need to get a larger prop like a 29 so when I do Delta runs I can keep the RPM down. The biggest prop I own is a 24 but I can spin it pretty good and get a decent top end. Most of the time I enjoy cruising around 40 to 50 miles an hour.

    The transom saverís Iíve seen are adjustable. Long or short whatever is needed. I see a red strap but I really canít see the transom saver. Iím thinking about the type that goes from the trailer to the lower unit. I had one years ago it was called a gator graber.

    Yeah thats the one that I used as a core, but even though its adjustable it was too short...so I replaced the aluminum bar for a longer one. Thats what you see as a red strap...its not a strap its a steel bar.

    Built a fat shaft CLE on Saturday. Cut and re-splined driveshaft from CCMS...I like it. I want to strip the paint and polish it next.
    Notice the rise/run of the stair in the back of the shop, I'm sure its OSHA approved.

    Sunday I took the aquasport out to slay some halibuts...couldn't ask for a nicer day on the salty pond.
    Yeah, I like how the fourstroke trolls so quietly and the troll control is essential. Getting all the engine data and AIS on the Garmins is also just as essential when fishin in that thick of fog with no radar.

    Definitely part of the food chain...especially when you can't see 1/4 mile. This weekend brought a tad nicer visibility, but the water was whooped in the middle of the tide. Like 6ft @ 5 sec.
    Running back home was nice though. Made it back early for father's day dinner.
