Thought I would post up one of the modifications I made this year... The MV10 surf enhancement

Boat is a 2012 F-23 Tomcat, PCM 409, Acme 2079 Prop, 2,400# gate controlled Stock Ballast +3,000# in pumps and sacks.

2 - Lenco 102 actuators 4.25" Stroke
2 - 1"X8" 18" long Oak Planks
4 - Strap Hinges
20' - 3 conductor, 14 gauge marine cable
2 - waterproof 30 amp automotive momentary "power window" switches
assorted stainless screws and bolts..
total outlay was about $500...

So first off I had to decide on how to attach the tabs.. My boat (F-23 Tomcat) has quite a bit of curvature along the edges so I needed something that would give me good bearing across the surface of the hinge. I chose strap style hinges which when tightened down would bend and form the hulls curvature.

I did a little CAD drafting to determine the proper placement of the actuators to allow for a 30 degree deflection from the side of the boat when fully extended and to be right up tight to the swim platform when retracted.
