Today, I recieved in the mail for Fliesitdies, One check for $100.00 and 2 boxes of tackle from another donor. It looks like we have pledges for around $1000.00 , I hope that everyone got to the post office and the checks or on the way. So for the best deal I have found is a 40 hp Yamaha, and to purchase it and buy a new set of yamaha controls would be about equal to our budget. I am still shoping, if anyone has a line on a motor, and we still could save some money if we could find a set of used Yamaha controls. I would like to add a personal thank you to each and everyone of you that took up this project with me, I have not had the pleasure of meeting Ramsy, but someone who loves the water as much as he does has to be on the right track in life, I am sure we can all say it is money well spent. Thanks again, THE OLD, OLD, OLD, CASTER !

Will a different kind of control box work with a yamaha? I might be able to get my hands on a suzuki box.
