    I inquired about those top mounted lockouts and the local boat shop gave me this long rant about how those should not be used and are not to be sold to end customers, blah, blah, blah. I didn't...

    A socket from the tool box works well enough but repeated use will start to bend the washer under the c-clip.

    I have no idea how much rain it would take to fill the bilge/hull area but maybe 5" plus the 5" above the carpet would be 10 inches of rain... is that in line with your 3 day rainfall?

    I burn a very little bit of oil just due to the heavy load but it's the same wakeboarding vs. surfing. I'm not too concerned with the effect of the lean angle on the motors. It's extreme for boating...

    They should fit perfect. It has the same overall dimensions (50x24x24) as the 1100#. The volume difference is just due to the circular cross-section.

    Are you talking about the quarter turn latches that hold the hinge panel in the "up" position? What kind of trouble are you having? Those work well for me.

    And by "needed" he means "the absolute max that will fit"!

    Ah, now that makes sense but the advantage would be cable size by sharing one shield, but it wouldn't improve noise immunity.

    But with a total investment <$100, I don't think I'd care even if it only lasted a few years. It would still be 1/10th the cost of seadeck

    That's true if the drivers/receivers are differential. If they are single ended (which the ZLD is) then a coax RCA is the right cable.
