I haven't done it yet but it is on my list...
Because of the angle of my transom, with the motors trimmed all the way up, the tips of the lower units are in the water about an inch and 1/2 when my fuel tank is full. It really bothers me.
I bought wedges and intend to take the motors off and add the wedges so that I can tilt them all the way out of the water.
Now that said, the wedges will probably sit on a shelf in my garage for a couple of years and then I will end up putting them on ebay

What you really need is a ballast system that allows you to pump water into your front anchor locker until the lower units just clear the water. That way you could set them at perfect 1-inch clearance no matter how much fuel you had onboard.

My buddy use an old fat sack his son had left over from his wake boarding days, and would fill to raise his transom to keep his lower units dry.

Waiting to get my boat back from electronics installer - replacing Garmin with Simrad so that I can use CMor Maps on my boat. Didn't make sense that I can't use my company's maps on my own boat.


Yes, I made some carbon fiber spearguns back in the day. Believe it or not, this was harder.

Love this thread, and the carbon fiber drink holders, priceless. Now just need to find a worthy craft brew.

Check out the Prusa Mk3 printer. $800 and worth every penny. There are plenty of materials that do great in the sunlight and heat. I have printed dozens of ABS & ASA parts for my boat and others and I would be surprised if they still weren't going strong for as long as I have the boat. For highly loaded parts there are plastics with 20% carbon fiber that will give you additional strength.

Typical boat trip
Drop boat at ramp

Go enjoy boat
Pull up head home around 5 miles
Commence to cleaning
Flush both motors with ports
Flush with salt away on muffs
Fill flush bag and run in bags for 7 minutes each drain move and refill for other motor
Spray brakes and hubs with Saltaway
Rinse vigorously
Spray entire trailer and motors with Saltaway
Wife washes inside I do outside
Then come inside and wash areas behind her once she goes in
Dry everything
Pull back and put on blocks i have buried in the ground so tires don’t sit on grass
Put cover on
Yeah I got it a little bad

I organise the spices in my kitchen alphabetically. And I get mad at people who put them back in the wrong order.

Thanks for taking the time to post this. I did not know that glass or carbon filled plastics could be 3d printed. Especially on an $800 dollar machine. I need to look into them.

Label the spot where they belong so you donít have to reorganize them.

Great work David . Very meticulous!
HOWEVER - in the 5th picture- your labels are a little crooked 😘 Does that count for some OCD ?
