Called the dealer today and they were not sure what I was talking about when I mentioned the different plugs, said they only showed the one part number. Figured if I can shoot him a PN then he can verify it is the right one.
Yours had 3 "bullet" connectors on it right (round)? Just curious. Thanks in advance. Garry :D


Hey Garry,

There are 2 different part numbers - mine is 87-815200A02. This one has OVAL ends. The other part number (sorry, I guess I tossed it) has the round ones. We have the same boat so I imagine you have the same one I do but check just to make sure.

If your guy cannot find it, PM me and I will call over to my place to get it for ya.

We were at the lake today and I think this is the single best mod we have done - cheap, practical and useful.

Let me know if you need anything else.

As usual, you can always find what you are looking for at the BOC. Thank you for the quick response. I'm going to call back tomorrow and shoot him that PN just to be sure I get the right one. Really appreciate the help. Garry :)

Patented over 10 years ago. They use a water filled spring piston instead of a sealed hydraulic like Smart Tabs.
If you read their "how it works" section and look at their little "blow out video", they only work for the hole shot and after the "blow out", they just flap free and have no affect on cruising performance or stability or even keeping the bow down while cruising. It's no wonder they dont' seem to have caught on. His idea was close, but not the whole enchilada!

I also noticed there was no pricing or dealers listed where to buy them..

OK - - I did the low-cost, space-saving, admiral-pleasing, quick and easy Mod of cargo netting the gunwales. Should've done this a long time ago. These 175's get so cluttered with towels, suntan oil, hats, purses, thongs (the flip-flop kind) etc. - - you get the picture and no compartments to store the junk. Those nets really came in handy last weekend!

Thanks for the idea Ray!!!

Laz;

My 175 has 6 " side boards that I think the PO put in. They come in handy but I am going to work on them some more to make them more useful. When I get a new digital, I'll post pics. They are quite handy for sotrage and don't interfere with the room in the cockpit. But, I like those cargo nets too. Where'd you get em?

Sy - and I always assumed the '04 and '05's were identical. Mine are open from the factory but I noticed in the pic at the top of Mac's Sub that they are different.
The Cargo nets were bought at Pep Boy's. You can the one's made for the trunks of cars. Get one that is about 24" x 24-48". When you fold it in half it makes a pocket about 12".

they cost about $15

Has anyone tried these before? I've considered mounting these to the inboard sides of the port and starboard Back2Back seat bases in the cockpit. Not sure if I'm convinced yet or not.

I don't think I would go that route.
The nets make more sense in the boat. You'll never need to wash them. Sand / water goes right through. Anything inside that is wet will air-dry. They stretch to fit, and you can get a "visual" of the contents just by looking at 'em.

Hey Jeff
Yes, those are on my wish list, mostly to carry such things as cellphones, wallets, etc. I plan to put an inch or two of flotation fowm in the bottom. I was thinking though that Iwould mount them on the outside of the back2backs. I fear that if I put them onthe inboard side, in the aisle, they will be in the way.

Syz,

I've worried about them getting in the way too. Unfortunately I don't have the same amount of vertical space on the outboard sides of the seat bases as I do on the inboards. I have a small shelf just above floor height outboard of the seats at the base of the gunnels that will interfere. Additionally, my gunnels have a second shelf, above the first, so the netting solution that seems to work well in the 175's won't work in my boat.

You can see a portion of both shelves in this picture.

I've given thought to putting them in the back under the jump seats. However, I usually have cooler or two, a portable grill and a food bag that are stuffed wall to wall back there.

Oh well. I guess I should be thankful for the outboard shelve areas.

LOL! I wish I had shelves and cabinets and secret sompartments......! The one major drawback to this little boat is the lack of storage. Oh well, the next boat, eh? So far though, we have only been out four times and each times we figure out something new to help with the organization. You boat, you learn!

Good luck with it and smooth cruisin'!:arr
