Got the call from a life long friend on the bass running, knock the dust and bees nest off the Gator Tail, 3 limits by 9am, two boats, Chug Bugs and Speed Craws bait of the day, Spanish Lake Area, Cruised the area a bit, not a lot of boats out and about, Gator Tail preformed flawlessly, Great day to be out and about in the marsh.

mulletsquisher,Wish I had better news regarding rebuild of powertrim assembly but dat aint de case as this unit giving me a world of hurt getting not only top pin out but whoever rebuilt unit last time(took her to a repair shop-they have since gone outta business-go figure)musta NOT had spanner wrench to loosen and remove cap for hydraulic cylinder and they about DESTROYED holes in cap where a spanner wrench WOULD properly fit!!!Guess I will do my best to remove cap,probably gonna destroy cap and have to get either brand new(never used)cap of try to find good used one!!Did put ad looking for cap for 1999/2000 Johnson/Evinrude 50 hp powertrim cylinder cap and hope to find one soon or gonna plunk down some coin for new one(good news is should be long-lasting repair with heavy-duty o-ring kit vs inferior OEM kits-MAY last 6-8 years at most).Gonna get her back on water pronto and do have lotta friends more than willing to let me jump aboard and did have invite this am to join a fellow who posts here but had plenty work to do today,Thanks Proud Pop for invite!!
