Loaded up the family and headed to Keystone lake yesterday. Boat ran great. Got the oldest on the inner tube for the first time this year and the first time with the Mercruiser drive installed. The 14.75 x 19 prop seemed to work pretty good with the typical load on board. Keystone was a lot smoother with only a light ripple compared to the white caps and 3 foot waves from Memorial Day weekend.
Reverse gear works now. Well it was always going into gear just killing itself due to a shift interrupt switch miss adjustment. Now it is properly adjusted and it is working correctly. Drive shifts nice and easy.
