    just a thought you don't say what length your crash tender is. Mine is 46" version, is your 36"? therefore smaller cabins

    Hi Martyn,
    Here are the instructions to view the media file that I uploaded to the site as a video media file. These instructions will allow you to download the file and then view the video. They are also on available on this web site for future reference. Enjoy!
    Cheers
    Duncan


    TO VIEW VIDEOS

    Some videos open normally but others have a different way to open them.
    They may say Invalid File, or Media File but if you click on them a new page will open.
    At the top LEFT HAND corner there is a white arrow on a blue back ground, click on it and it will download.
    Depending on the computer you are using it might open or give you the choice to select a viewer or just click on open.
    Sometimes it will download it as an MPG4 file so you will have to rename it as an MP4 file to view it.

    I think my bulkheads must be spaced differently to yours as I cant fit them in lenghth ways without removing some of the bulkhead. They will fit accross the beam of the boat at the rear of the compartment behind the wheelhouse,or in the third compartment above the propshaft tube. I hadnt considered an across the boat fitment before. the central compartment has the motor in so they cant fit cross ways in this one.
    Many Thanks for your help. Looking at your photos I am going to take some of your ideas for switch placements.

    Thanks for all the advice. It looks like I have the wrong size batteries for the boat even though they were suggested by the shop. I'm happy to get replacements (I'll use these in another model) if anyone can suggest suitable size,power etc and where to buy them from.
    That may be a better solution than cutting the bulkheads to get these to fit.
