    Being stranded on a boat, with 8 chicks seems like my kind of time!!

    Definitely the downside of breaking out the ole wakeboard! I don’t bounce anywhere near as good as I used to!!

  2. I like your outlook on things. Took 2 hours to get a tow boat that day so we did get a little liquored up while waiting.. and it was actually one of the girls faults. She was walking from swim deck and stepped through into the engine compartment and knocked something loose. Had an axis before this where that was easy to do. Still have yet to let her live it down

    Lenco did a beefier unit and MC got them to give them a one year exclusivity. So you won't see them to the general public for another 6 months at least. I do not know the agreement terms but I do know we can't get them as replacements.

    I hadn’t heard that, but that is good news! What about buying them through a MC dealer and installing yourself? Or are they only putting them on builds?

    No kidding! Maybe I’m better off with my old, POS actuators!! I will be putting those new ones on when I put GSA plates on. That’ll be the setup!!

    They hold up just fine with the GSA's. They are a straight shot. No need to run different actuators.

    That’s good news. Sounds like I may finally be getting my boat back, so I’ll have to decide whether to do the GSAs before this summer, or next fall.

  10. Going on a bit of a shopping spree here and got some LED rings for the tower speakers in my cart. If I don’t buy the RGB controller thing and just hook em straight up, does that mean they will always stay on? If so what color would they be??

    You would not want to connect them straight to 12V, as this would likely get you a ticket first trip out after dark. With the RGB controller, you only have single color light options, red, green, blue, amber, purple, a bluish white and one other I cant remember.

    So why the change to new actuators on the new boats with GSA's?

    I’m a gigantic fan of overkill!!

    You guys need to make a retrofit kit to put the new plates and actuators on older boats!
    (For the record, I’m not pretending like I’m the originator of that idea)

    From what I’ve heard the new actuators also allow for a much more precise setting every time with much faster deployment.

    And trust me Zack if I could have the new actuators on my boat I would have had them long ago aha. The computer control software doesn’t lineup unfortunately.
