    Well, that sucks!! I’m sure I can figure it out, if it’s doable.

    Haha! We actually had that exact convo yesterday, I gave the girls **** for drinking them, and not a beer like “a man”, then realized they are kind of a refreshing first couple of drinks, on the water. Guess I’m just one of the girls!! These days, most of the guys will have at least a couple, and we almost always run out, no matter how many we bring!

    Ya, that’s about what I’d expect out of that crew.

    A couple seasons ago, my wife started drinking those Michelob Ultras. They’re actually pretty good. I can’t get past the cans though. They are the Virginia Slims of the beer world. They don’t fit in a coozie.
    You'll get your chance, smart guy.

    Hahaha!! You know how I roll!! I’m a Rye Whiskey and IPA guy, in the real world, but some of those hot mornings, after a long night by the fire, and a White Claw hits you real nice!!

    Ultras are pretty dang easy to get down, too, but I know what you mean!! Same problem with the white claws, and trulys!! Except, the newest case of White Claw that we got came in 12oz cans that fill a coozie up, just right!!

    I’ll grab you a cold one, next time we catch up with you in the narrows, and bring you over to the girls team! You’re welcome!

    But I went through 3 sets of actuators and they moved the way they were mounted also.

    Maybe the real problem is I’ll drink anything that isn’t wine or gin??

    Do you know what the mounting change was? That concerns me somewhat. What boat do you have?

    My boat is a 2016 R20 the actuators were mounted to the swim step so they retracted to far and would get stuck so they moved to the hull better angle.

    Most 2018s had a recall that moved the actuator position about an inch.

    Huh, I’ll look into it, I guess. I have no idea if mine has, or needs to be moved. Does it affect the wave, or is it just because something binds up? Mine has never bound up.

    You shouldn’t need to move anything the 16s were fine. Your dealer will let you know otherwise.

    Killer. I kind of assumed that, but sometimes it’s hard to get info, unless I ask first. Hopefully I can get these actuators replaced and not have any issues the rest of the summer!!

    Zackdogg,
    I was thinking about it and you could order up a hatch(x2) and cut the holes where they are now(factory locations) and install the hatch when you are done. That way you never have to take the panels out, especially if you have to do this again at some point..

  12. #27
    Are they that bad to get those panels out? That might be the way to go, if that’s the case. That’s a good thought, I guess I’ll look in to that. I guess I could really put any kind of access panel in there. I can get HDPE marine board from my plastic guy, I think that’s what they use for all those panels.

    ^^ Just google marine deck hatches and theres all kinds of options. Grab the sawzall/air saw and cut your hole. This just screws in. Super easy. Just a thought. Ive never take them all the way out but I do know on the 18s theres 1 screw below subfloor so you have to take the plastics out that are above subfloor. Not that much of a pain, just extra steps in the process.

    Oh yeah, those are slick. I was picturing just a screw in panel. Good call! Thanks brotha!!

    Got some new actuators, thanks Tige. Just out of curiosity, which bracket holes should those be mounted to?
