I actually got the knock off version of the Tiny Tach, heard it worked well and its about 20$ cheaper. Might get it hooked up tonight after I finish painting the garage door.

Great video, thanks for posting. Makes me want to get mine out more often. Next time let us hear those horns! :lol:

The best part about a manual screwdriver is not needing to remember if you left it in reverse.

Completion is but one step in the process and not one bit more important than the others.

Love the video. I was entertained by the talk about rough water. That lake would be the smoothest in Kansas on any given day in the summer! lol

Perhaps the slowest Zip build in Glen-L history...

Why wait until you hit the water again. You could always give us a preview with the boat in the hanger.[hint, nudge, push,]

Thanks for reminding me UPS, I have been awed and intimidated by Roberta's boat building skills but I now know I am her equal when it comes to shop neatness! :lol:

A clean shop is a sign of a sick mind!!!

One of my friends has tile floor in his shop as well as a vacuum port for every tool,a/c stereo,T/V,labels for every storage bin.... he is a work-a-holic and gets tons of stuff done too!

Roberta, those sounded good. What are the lengths? I was going to install the twins on mine, but went with a single because I thought they would be too large. They don't look too big at all on your boat.

This would be a great set for a Squirt, and with the compressor below deck, it would stop porpoising!!!

Hey Jeff, the longer one is just under 18" overall, the short one is just over 15", the horns are 3.75" in diameter, and the assembly is about 8" wide.

Warren, if you faced those horns aft on the Squirt, you wouldn't need a motor. YIKES!!!
