Welcome to the new Mini Boat Madness forum. We've completed the conversion and migration to our new forum platform, Simple Machines Forum. Our primary goal was to increase site speed and member accessibility. The original software just wasn't living up to our needs, so we switched. Early testing has shown a dramatic increase in site speed and we hope it stays that way.
MBM is a work in progress and will always be a living, evolving forum. As you check out the new format, please don't hesitate to let us know about any problems you might find. The database conversion was not without issue, so let us know about any bugs!
All currently registered members will be receiving an email containing a new password. Unfortunately, password migration was not possible and new ones are the solution. Hopefully, you won't find this too much of an inconvenience.
Signatures may also need to be updated. It appears that the formatting from the old forum is not compatible with SMF.
Thanks to our growing membership for the continued support. We hope this new software will allow us to continue growing for years to come.

It should fit your current outboard . You just need to know which hp motors are in the same size group as your 40hp . The seller should be able to supply measurements for you to confirm fit to your unit . Besides the power trim unit you will need two relays and a switch ( Depending on the trim unit will require a two or three wire harness type ). I have done this with an
Yes, this product is huge in the automotive industry. It's everything they claim it is. The only downside I've noticed is it's difficult to keep clean as it kind of has a rubbery feel so dust and debri sticks to it unlike a painted surface. It's not bad it's just the only downside I have noticed. My friend here in Minneapolis runs a business professionally applying this, primarily
Our new 520 sterndrive has been a resounding success since it was introduced one year ago at the LOTO (Lake of the Ozarks) Shootout.
