    Yeah, I’m curious how to make the Engine hatch look good and the one gunnel side. You also have to decide how the bow Section should be cut to access the floor ballast hatch.

    Thanks! Pretty low on the priority list right now. Side skirts for the cover are finally on there way back from Evolution. However, want to start a plan for when the money tree grows back in ��

    Pretty sure that all shake like that due to the design so you can pull and drop, when needing to lower it. I know mine does,

    My platform will "rock" up and down especially if rollers are coming in from the rear. When I look at the platform out of the water the "slack" looks like normal play in the brackets and pins. If everything feels solid Id say you are good.

    does anyone have experience with their swim step vibrating pretty good when boat is tied to dock and waves come? i have a 2008 214 DD with the larger fiberglass swim step.

    Thank you guys. Kind of a crazy design, but appreciate the confirmations.

    Mine are like that. I'm assuming they have that room so they can "flop" around and provide clearance to fit up tower parts.

    So Ironhorse is running a 3 blade 13X11. That 11 pitch makes a big change compared to the 15 I have. Still gets 45 mph.

    Bolts on tower are correct
