Finally got po'd enough and fixed the trailer. Bought a new tongue jack. Had to make my own bolts out of threaded rod. Need to lop a lil off the stb end so I don't skewer myself but worked okay.

Turned the 'wench' around so the handle's on the correct side. Took it apart and lubed it up as well.

Coming together nicely. Looks like it'll be a mean machine.

Tach and Water Pressure gauge Joe. Wood stick down the fuel fill'll tell you how much gas ya got left ...

On switch yes, and a separate off switch. Attached to some sort of lanyard thingy ...

Need to come up with a trim switch. Thinkin mebbe just a two button universal deal tied onto the shifter for now.

Seeing how pretty that wheel is, I thought I'd take a look around and find one with switches built in.  Found this, probably a bit much for a boat.   BTW, it's an F 1 wheel.

Is there a gizmo that checks for channel markers?

Just might want to look into one of those.

Need to keep that purty paint job looking nice.

They only cost $50,000...why not?

Lil pricey for me D. Way I see it if'n the motor or drive's gonna come apart? It's gonna come apart. In spite of all the 'guages' and bells and whistles somebody hangs on it.

I was looking for one that maybe had a few in it for trim, and trim tabs, but only found OEM car wheels and that seriously outrageous F 1 wheel.  Did find a floor mount trim switch arrangement that you operate with your foot, but that doesn't seem like it would work well bouncing around.  Also found some paddles that might be neat

I got one of Mercury things that go on the old school shifters, I have seen them used on a wheel before.
U want ?

Thanks Joe, but wheel mounted trim switch won't work with hydraulic steering. Wheel never winds up in the same place.

Drilled a hole and mocked some chit up. Shoulda gone a 1/4" higher with the WP gauge but think I can still squeeze a toggle switch for the bilge pump in underneath. That's the old hole for the recall switch on the fancy schmancy Autometer tach btw. Simple man like me don't need no $500 dollar 14000 rpm tach to tell me how fast I just went ...  (For sale, make offer ...)

Buddy Frank at Dolphin Marine hooked me up with a gently used bilge pump today. One'a them fancy ones where the business end is replaceable. Which is good cuz the screw ears are already busted off the base, so I'll be gluing it down ... Ah well, beggars cain't be choosers.

Plan is to mount the GPS left of the kill switch.

Ran for a minute! WooHoo!!! But when we slid the "flushette" on to continue? The sob broke and wouldn't hold water. Grrr. (Reckon I shouldn't leave it layin round in the sun all the time ...)

Wiring is close but still needs a lil work. Gotta isolate the tach wires. 'Kill switch' works.
