Gery tronics
have tried Peltor but was'nt keen on the jack plugs.
Have found the same connectors as Grey Tronic now so might give the Peltor a second go with the new jack plugs.
I do like the standard add on that peltor provide such as Mobile phone interfacing PMR radio interfacing and ship to shore.
Always good to know where your competitors are during the race, of course if you rules allow it.

I've got a nice intercom, cost a tenner. Used it once whilst towing Cye with Burty observing. Couldnt hear a word Burty was saying so he was waving his hand around in front of my face to tell me where to go. In the pub afterwards Burty and Cye took the piss out of me cause they said I couldnt drive in a straight line. Cye thought I was zig zagging to avoid being torpedode!!!

How to make a custom foot rest.
Just add a detail such as this that is individual to the boat it is going into.
This will be lazer cut through 4mm aluminum and should look great.

Dude as you have been a good customer I will do you a custom rest at the same price as a standard.
Can't be fairer than that.
Altho not sure about apahce logo as this will take around 4-5 hours to draw.
Numbers are easy so get choosing.

Anything that will make it easier to convert text or images to DWG autocad would be great.
Or standard font's etc.

Here's the Alien Cowling support bracket for Bad Boy.
A must for anyone with an alien cowling as Mercury don't make them for the 280's and you have to use a standard 2.5efi bracket that is to short and have a long pin machined to suit.

Cye, if you get stuck at all. It is possible to convert a jpeg into a dxf or a dwg (on our CAD system). You just take loads of points from the jpeg and join them up like a monster dot to dot puzzle.
Cookee, that how I done your sharks.
