    and why can't they fit Ql's to a foam filled hull ????

    My understanding with the QL's is they need to bolted thru the hull hence needing access to inside the hull .
    Late model CC's have sealed floors and no access .

    my boat has a sealed floor..foam filled and it has QL tabs...and they work a treat.

    Maybe they make more money by selling and fitting another brand.

    Could be fact but i'm more curious to how yours were fitted.
    Or is it one of Grand Marlins trade secrets

    No worries mate,

    I think mine was a tad cheaper than that I'll try and dig out the receipt but I think it was sub $2k and was done by CC (just to give you a guage to maybe bargain on). Just send me a PM before you get them done mate, I had a little issue with them over the installation and ended up taking it back to them to redo my tabs. But it is easily avoided if you let them know prior to the install.

    I would guess approx 2.1 - 2.2t full fuel/loaded, maybe lighter depending on motor choice. You would save approx 150 - 200kg with the alloy trailer.

    Thanks GF.

    You have an ally trailer don't you?
    What does your 685 weigh fully loaded?

    O-3, never had her on the bridge, but based the trailer selection (for <3t ATM) on weighbridge certs from several other similar 685ís. She would go ~2.65t full of fluids & essential gear, but without eskies, tackle & gear/cargo. Yes, alloy trailer & I saved 300kg.

    Re: CruiseCraft Appreciation Thread

    Another option for you Ďtab-lessí CC guys & gals are Minn Kota trim tabs. The actuators are rated to IP68 (highest industry rating) and come in a short or long shaft variety (short shaft good for CC transoms). The plates are reinforced & ribbed plastic, very strong, and are contoured (ŗ la tri-hull shape) to provide much greater lift/efficiency (claimed 50% greater than a flat plate from memory).

    The indicator switches are similar to Lenco, but also have auto up & down buttons, with one-touch cancel at any point of travel. Makes any form of simultaneous control a breeze without the need of having to hold down both rocker switches.

    Similar pricing to Lencoís, and the plates wonít bend! Check them out

    I have had them for as long as Iíve had the boat, but have been busy (slack too ) & only just finalised the ladder mods to allow it all to happen. Wanted the tabs out wide where they are supposed to be, but also wanted a 3 rung ladder over the standard 2 rung unit. After some custom s/s brackets, ladder mods and sail track, it all works well, albeit the ladder slides in backwards up the sail track (it can flip over, but then sticks up proud).

    Any pics of your ally trailer?
    Am interested in how you have found it & how it is setup, who the manufacturer is etc.

    Heath, it's the best/easiest to use trailer I've ever owned for mono's. Trailer is a Rocket Int, imported/assembled by Duralum (in VIC). Done a few mods but otherwise love the skid trailers. Use silicone spray every few months to keep em really slippery.

    A few links, but there have been more posts from memory re alloy trailers. Apparently there were quite a few different types/makes of alloy trailers at the Sanct Cove boat show.
