    Got mine Thursday but it will be next weekend before I get to install them. They are a fantastic build quality and should really look great.
    Todd does really nice work.

    They arrived today and they look great! :smt038

    I should be able to put them on this week-end and finally get rid of my everbreaking plastic ones!


    Please note Todd's "creative" packaging :grin::grin::grin: ...FYI: it was empty! (or someone drank it all at the Italian custom :smt021)

    There should have been a 1/2 case of beer in there too? Hopefully those boxes worked well. I figured I'd use a box of "the worlds most popular wine" and send it to Italy.

    I don't argue that. My Bride drinks this crap. I don't see how but it's good for the pocket book.

    Let me just say that yes, I had an issue with my vents. Todd, was great at making them right no questions asked. He kept me informed and I must say is an all around great guy. If I can give him business again I will definitely do so. Here's some pictures of My beauties, Even the one I dropped in the water (Half hour of diving I retrieved it.)

    Still manufacturing these? I haven't read the whole thread - is there a site somewhere I can order?

    I discovered last weekend the source of a lot of water in my bilge - wicking in from poorly/not at all sealed side vents. I need to measure, but these look great.
