Default Adjustable Struts?

I remember reading something in this section a while back about a Silverton that had them, but I can't remember whose it was. Seems like maybe it had ties to the IPS systems. I tried searching, "adjustable struts", but came up with nothing. Anybody else remember hearing of such a thing?

I prefer running in deeper waters myself, but sometimes you need to be able to find people who hang out in the shallow end.

Sorry, that seemed to be about something other than a boat with adjustable struts. Thanks for trying though.

I remember that but it was some time ago, that was some sort of electrical motor on it to raise and lower it.

I think Randy is talking about the shaft struts for the props were adjustable. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Yeah, that was it. Could be the guy that said he had such a set-up was just confused, but he made a pretty good argument. Then again, cheap alchohol may have been involved.

I would have asked this question on the boating side, but this topic came up in this section. Besides, you know those outboard guys know nothing about struts... adjustable or otherwise.

WOW, that TN Freebird guy was a pretty frequent liar eh? No wonder he got a lifetime ban.

And whoops Freeebird, looks like ya got the wrong forum. Must be the aging memory thing.

Maybe the mods will move it back to the Boating forum for ya if you ask 'em nice enough!

Very interesting indeed - I do believe there is a very strict rule about having two screen names.

Seems people who have them cause all sorts of issues around the forum. I believe the issue was that they used one to attack forum members and the other to play off and encourage the attack. Hence they are prohibited.

Guess that is exactly what happens.
