I use a 110V winch bolted to the floor (from Harbor Freight. Forgot price but it was somewhere around $100) works very well. All you have to do is steer. Only trick is that the control cord that...

Checking panel with canopy closed

Mark,
Thanks for your observation. Put the canopy on today to check clearances and the left G3X display just fits with maybe 1/32 inch to spare! "Even a blind squirrel finds an acorn now and...

Exhaust diameter
