Condolences.  Dust to dust (couldn't resist that one).  Mourn just long enough for the new one to arrive in the shop.  I recommend the hotties from Germany, Bosch 1250DEVS or the Festool (can't remember her last name).

This John McKay guy sounds like a wise man; just the kind of fellow who would put a walk around pilothouse on a Tolman skiff!

My Porter Cable 6" RO sander passed over the bar this morning. She's been with me for over two decades. Epoxy dust finally took her from me.

What is the appropriate amount of time to wait before hooking up with a hot young replacement?

we'll get to see your execution of the concept.

Years ago, USC's football team played an awful game and was badly beaten. After the game someone asked USC's coach John McKay "What do you think of your team's execution?"

He answered, "I'm in favor of it."

The outboard dealership sold it to me and installed it when I bought my kicker.  But I believe they may custom make them with simple stainless rods that are threaded at each end. They attach these real simple couplers that have a sleeve that slides and let's you drop it onto the ball, and then locks on (while allowing the ball to rotate within the coupling). The second site mentioned by kayak looks like it has everything you need. A few easy measurements and should be easy.

Panther marine make a kit that bolts onto the steering linkage arm and then connects to the kicker.  Ball joints make for quick removal.

I picked one up a while back from Cabelas for ~$60 but returned when I realized that the "stainless" version I bought did not have stainless quick-connectors.  Ended up ordering all stainless 3/8" balljoints and connectors and a 24" 3/8" threaded rod from midwestcontrol products.  Was cheaper by a third including shipping.

That's what I'm looking for.  Where do you get those?  Link?

Thanks,

Jim
