V-drive shifter ideas.... help?

9 hours 52 min ago
My v-drive in my boat has a cover over it as part of the seating configuration and I always have to open the cover to shift it into and out of gear when running. I'd like to install a shifter in front of the cover so I dont have to do this anymore. Seen a few different configurations of how to do this but I want to do it right and nice. A couple heim joints and a rod and some type of billet brackets I figure would do it.

Heres one example I found: (anybody got any other ideas of photo examples you have done or found?)

Thru Transom Exhaust?

Just bought a v drive (bassett headers) and thinking of switching to thru transom exhaust (trying to make is more 'civilized' and draw less attention for noise). Any thoughts? Anyone done it and regretted it?

Clear anodizing removal

Thu, 12/18/2014 - 18:22
Does anyone know how to remove clear anodizing that has experience doing it. The only way I can get it off is sanding. Looking for a chemical way to remove or something easier than sanding.
