I bought mine a year ago and finally took time to install it last week. Immediatley noticed a few things.
1) Much quieter and no smell at rear of boat.
2) Reverse is a little more challenging.
3) Spray on platform sucks and either plexiglass or aluminum diamond plate under platofrm will be needed.
4) Sense of secuity or safer with kids behind boat definitly justifies cost.
Installation was easy in driveway with basic tools and the instructions are great with diagrams. About 1.5 hours total with my son helping me.
I can't say enough about Larry's customer service. I emialed photos of spray and complaint of excessive fuel consumption and reverse compromised. He called me within minutes to advise the problem. It appears the down tube is too long for my boat and needs to be angled backwards more. He immediatly shipped me new system with shorter down tube and angled mounts to raise system. I am sure once installed it will perform much better. Again I cant say enough about customer service.
