The New Tube and a Skier
I added a Drive Shower to keep the outdrive gears, case, and lube oil cooler when running on plane for extended periods of time.

I painted the tips that go through the anti-ventilation plate, and the tab on the top you bolt, phantom black - which is Mercury's color for the outdrive. The tips have a hole facing forward. Water is forced into these holes at high pressure and squirts out 3 holes above the top, and four to the sides, of the outdrive, to keep it cooler.
I added a Delphi XM Radio cradle, modulator, and marine antenna.

It sounds very good. I use the same XM tuner (SKYFi2) in my boat, my car, and at work.
At the end of February, the boat comes out of storage (the "caves")
