Looking good Andrew,  the Jetsprint looks like it is moving well now with the K30 in it too.
  Sorry haven't contacted you in a bit, just been busy trying to pack up the shed and house, i am hoping to get on the water again in about a month, as i need to get a shed built on the new place first.
Regards Mick

I used hot glue, I was able to glue some and then when cooled, pushed the mesh into place and glued some more. The chinese boats use hot glue so I gave it a go. The mesh is alloy flyscreen so it holds it's shape well. I could not find any light expanded alloy mesh down here anywhere.

Cheers

Why didn't you just use a small radio box plug or 5/8 boat transom plug for you radio box on/off switch lol. That's what we all use and it's water proof and easy to get to !!! Boat looks great by the way

It is just the way that I have been using this setup on the radio boxes since the late 70's, the lids are a lot better today than back then, I can also get to the charge conection through the same hole.

Cheers
