Tell us how it fits! On FB loads of people have been complaining lately bout the fitting and the quality. Some even got broke windscreens and the great UPD customer service didnít care.

Online somewhere.  I thought it was interesting as they don't all mount the same.

Itís official... sheís a intimidator again.   Hopefully the sun will be out tomorrow and Iíll get some better pictures.   Hot or cold, rainy or sun.. next weekend she will be back on the water.    P.s.  Windshield fit very nicely... no problems.

Really looks great, nice work on the resto.   Will you be adding the rails and ladder back on?  Has a nice clean look right now.

This one had no rails or ladder on it when I started, and I think Iím going to leave them off. Looks better with out to me also.  Just need to make the wood strips for the step.      And if anyone want this ladder I found when I did some garage cleaning your welcome to it. Should buff out nice.  Iím not sure which parts boat it came off of but it is a glastron ladder.  If you want shipped, thatís up to you.

I added one similar to that to our 23. Jason mentioned the original 23 ladders are a little short making it a little difficult to get in so I shelved the original ladder I have for this one

That is much better! Iíve thought a few times of swapping mine out. Does it lock down when folded up? Rattle around?

It doesn't lock down.  I suppose I could mount a cover snap to the ladder to secure it.  We have only had it out once with that ladder but I didn't notice any additional noise.

Something is missing!!     :o   You guessed it, no timi.... :'(    Just before we headed out I tried to start her as I always do before we head out,  the starter was dead!   So we took emmers and left timi at home...  still a nice day.  Cloudy and cold, but the fire was big and the company was good. Leaves are almost peek.  You just have to get out whenever you can at this time of year..   new starter today and then weíll try again next weekend.

Has anyone out there ever had the start on a key switch go bad??     I pulled the starter and checked it, disconnected the neutral switch, all fuseís ... the only thing I can think of next, is the key switch.   Any ideas guys?    I got a new key switch for it today and will let youíall know tomorrow...

A quick check would be to jump the start solenoid wire to battery at the keyswitch.  Possible neutral safety switch in the shift/throttle mechanism also inhibits the start line.  But to answer your question, yes, ignition switches do go bad.  The start contacts as well if not diode protected.
