Hey guys, quick update. We are at 12 units if all of the participants follow through. We need three more. If any of you are on the fence now would be the time to jump in. At the moment we are not at the minimum 15 to get the approval from PP to discount the prices.

For those of you who have confirmed we will be in touch with you once we find out the final tally. It will likely be Wednesday morning before we know for sure.

Thanks!

I'll need to ask PP ownership and see if they will allow the discount. It will be their call. I think we're at 13 now. We need two more if my count is right.

Install on a 2003-2006 230 model really is pretty simple. There are two things that are a little bit tricky, but not hard in any way.

  1. Get a good power source, I initially tried using the power for the old speedo, but it didnt have the juice needed, then I just ran it to a switch I'd already installed.
  2. Getting a good angle on the approach for the starboard engine throttle cable is tricky and takes some trial and error. You don't want too tight of a bend or it binds the cable to much. Once you find the best angle, zip tie it into that position and you are all set. I may sound hard, but took me 10-15 minutes of different routes until I found one that worked great.
I loved having PerfectPass....and my wife loved it even more! :) No more bickering LOL

@JetBoatPilot Received tracking info yesterday for PP. Thanks for putting this group buy together, it was the only way to convince the wife. Now on to that Seadek group buy, will you have one for 2017?

Mine arrived yesterday. I plan on installing next weekend. If anyone is adding PP to a AR210 and gets to it before me please post pictures of how you arranged things in the engine compartment. I will do the same.

@thcobb1 let us know how it goes for you. I assured PP that I'd relay any helpful info to them so others could benefit as well. Thanks!

Is it too late to get in on this deal? Or can I be first on the list for the next group buy?
