trim tab actuator mount

Hi, about a week ago I saw a spring loaded actuator mount, I think on this site? The comment with it was "I think Jurnigan sells them"

Thanks, Rich.

Re: sea deck

Worthy of note is that in time the sun will 'destroy' it. Then you have the problem of getting it off. On a fiberglass surface I tried a plastic scraper, lacquer thinner, acetone, alcohol, and I can't remember what else and the glue backing survived them all. It was the foam surface that went bad.

Re: Headers with built in muffler.

There great, there legal. You don't have to run flex but I do, engine runs fine. Call Innovative Accessories, Norman Clay, he'll fill you in on the legality.

Hull Mold

Many years ago my cousin designed and built an airboat hull mold. He produced them under the name "Southern Research". The mold was sold to Charlie Elmore in Bradenton, who built hulls and delt in aircraft engines. He moved out of the state, I believe to Tennessee. Does anyone know the whereabouts o...

Re: GPS

I use a Garmin 450 Oregon, ordered with no extras then added a S E 24k topo chip. Leaves trail and has better detail then 100k topo. RAM makes some nice mounts, available at GPScity, good $.

Dry mags

Hi, returning to airboating after a l o n g layoff. Engine is a IO360 with two 21 series Bendix mags. Read about having to run to boat to cover the mags if it starts to rain. Is it OK to have covers over them that are left in place? And, does anyone make covers for the 21 series mags?
Thanks, RK
