You see they are only for speeds up to 60 MPH, right?   :twisted:  :twisted:

Can't go wrong with Bennetts - they are the standard for the industry.   :thumleft:

Back when I had a job that gave me off during the week, I really took it for granted.  Boating with the weekend crowds is a drag- that's if you can find a spot at the ramp  :roll:

Hey Aaron, If you don't like the black switch, I have a white one with white face plate you can have for a song...

Aaron,

Nice Trim Tabs  :wink: !

Let me know if you have any questions when you are doing the installation. I work from a home office these days so you can contact me at TLMCGOW@aol.com if you are in the middle of something and need an answer, I check my e-mail frequently during the day and it would be faster than posting here.

I am looking forward to seeing pictures of them installed on your Aquasport and hearing what you think after you run the boat with them.

Pretty cool.

I just received the EIC5000 control for my units. Will be installing tonight and tomorrow for use this weekend.

Equally excited.

Currently have the joystick control with no indication which is absolutely the worst setup I have ever used....with indicators it would be just OK .

Now, with dual switches and indicators trimming out should be a breeze .

Good luck have fun

Ohh...anyone know the thread of the compression fittings on the pump? I forgot to check last night and need to pick some up at lunch.

Thanks in advance!

The threads on the Hydraulic Power Unit are 7/16 - 24 UNS-2A

Is there a West Marine near you?  They carry our Nut and Ferrules.

Thanks Tom.

There is one but they only have a few actuators and one pump. I haven't seen the fittings.

Should be able to pick up at a Valin will call.
