Drilling was easy, and everything is bone dry! Measuring took the most time. I must of measured and measured(measure twice, 3x, 4x and drill once). The directions were ok except for the troller attachment.

Here is the first set of holes

This was the hardest part. Keeping things square and at the correct angle. Here is the completed project.

4200 besides the sealing tape used to seal everything tight. I just want to try them out. I was shorted 4 screws and didn't realize until I needed them to attach the top brackets. I used a smaller drill bit to start the holes then used the correct size bit to finish.

I want to thank everyone for their posts, advice, and pictures because it really helped and I hope this helps someone else.

Please share your experiences with the smart tabs. I've been thinking of getting these instead of the regular electro/hydraulic ones but i'm not sure what to expect performance wise..

Nicely done tho..

If you used 4200, you'll want to pull those tabs back off and use 5200. 4200 isn't good for below the water line installs. I don't trust that sealing tape much when 5200 does it right every time.

Other than that, it looks great!
