    K plains

    I would be grateful if any one comes across a deal on a set of k plaines like what Jersey has on his outlaw,and any advice would be great.also feel there are members here that i would trust more than any boat marina for installation even if i had to trailer it all the way. have a lot of things on my plate at this time,starting today all trees coming down along with the fence.will be putting a pool in the back yard with hot tub and decking but have to get trees down first while i have access to get to them,and move my property line and fence back another 20 feet after having survey done and with the thought of retirement on my mind and my doctors,will have to start watching my budget a little ,thanks.

    also nuclear bone scan of my knee does not look good and blood work has shown a problem.i am not a doctor but i do know what i seen and read on my chart that i can log into to see results instead of waiting a week for next appointment and that is friday were they will be going in my knee for a look unless things change after doctor sees what i seen.at least this time it is not the begging of boat season so what ever has to be done ,should be good to go by the time the boats come out for summer. just need a little luck witch seems to be avoiding me lately. lol

    Hang in there man! Every day you wake up on the right side of the ground is a blessing. You've dealt with more chit in the past couple of years than most people have to in a lifetime!

    I'll keep an eye out. But they don't last once they're listed for sale, so being ready to buy is key. I bought my set off of offshoreonly marketplace for 900, I got a set from a friend of mine for 400 for a member here Scalded Dawg.

    Mercury Kiekhaefer 280's are 18" tabs, 380's are 30" tabs and a rare to come across. Both use the same back plate, ram, and hardware. Browse eBay for a trim tab switch that matches your boat. I took all the tab measurements from a 25 Active Thunder when I did mine.

    Re: K plains

    I had posted this accident about 2 years ago,was on the lake at the time.well I came across the add that it is being sold but what they do not say is the boat sank and 2 people died.hit the break water at 60 mph.the boat looks to be stripped but the k plains look ok and the boat is only about 15 miles from me.my question is how would you feel about getting parts off a boat that 2 died in and driver charged.

    Re: K plains

    Id also say get em with a couple thoughts

    Are they 280s or 380s ? Id think your boat needs 280s
    Take a good straight edge and check, check, check
    Who knows what hit them in the accident and transportation afterwards

    I concur with the others grab them if they are not bent up. I remember when those guys hit that wall at ispat steel the old Inland steel plant. They backfilled the lake over the last century and in the dark a very dangerous situation if your unfamiliar or under the influence.. They paid the ultimate price..
