Glass bracket over aluminum any day.

The last few new Armstrongs ive seen werent very impressive. Mounting flanges out of whack (big gaps mating to the transom. Dead flat transom too trust me), welding slag painted over, lots of pinholes in the welds, nonskid lines wandering all over the place...

No corrosion with a glass bracket either!

When I called Armstrong they said that production work was their priority and it would be months before I got my bracket. Sounded like one offs were an inconvenience. Im still trying to decide. Armstrong is out. The glass bracket is $3500....ouch

Moller have 2 center baffles. You can see them in the drawing.

I test fit the transom cap today. The fit is spot on.

My bay boat took priority today. I hung a new Christmas gift trolling motor and gave her a much needed bath.

If anyone wants the transom mold its up for grabs. It has a 2.5 crown and livewell plug. The 5 gal bucket plugs were destroyed unfortunately. My wife wants it gone. It works great and fit the first time. Just PM me.

Busy day. I made the livewell plug. I glued together the mdf box and rounded over the corners with a 2 router bit. Sprayed it with duratech sanding primer great stuff! Sanded with 320 grit, then steel wool, rubbing compound, lastly wax.

I pulled the cap and started glassing the transom cap to the original part. I also started patching all the holes in the cap. The anchor hatch Receiver was bonded in.

I have to pick up the pace. The Miami boat show is coming up and I want to buy the Suzuki. Hoping to get a deal there.

I am looking for a source for a new Suzuki DF300. I live in central Florida and Im willing to drive within the state for a good installation and price. I know about Mike at International Marine in Orlando but need other suggestions.

Satellite Beach is not that far. Check with Suzuki dealer, Chapin, SC, slightly north of Columbia. Never heard of them being here on the coast. Last Tuesday my buddy had an experience that was perfect. Got a grand for his 06 150, pulled, replaced with a white 175, plug and play, same prop, threw in. New tach, a round stereo head to fill old tach hole in dash, 3+3 warranty, handled all DNR registration for him, I believe under $11,300? Worth a call. He was up there and home same day, and it was lake tested! Just over 2 hours from Sav/HHI. Worth a call.

Michael.

Thanks for the heads up Michael. Worth a call.

The livewell popped out with ease. Its ready to be bonded to the transom cap. I decided to get rid of the Haas pipes and go with pop up cleats. I ground them flush and started filling all the holes in the cap.
