Hi Gang,
I hope you all have wet your hulls this season!

I have a 14 turbo with a set of early epo's and adjustable castings. My 16 has the white fiberglass I think rudders and non rake adjustable castings . Do any of you know if I could drill the epo's to work on both boats safely or would the holes be too close? I have not seen the drilling template or that might tell me everything I need to know.

TIA,
Eric

The 16 and 14 both use the same rudder castings, however the holes for the adjustable vs. non-adjustable castings are different.

Good to know that they use the same castings. I have epo's for my 16 now! I will just have to adjust the toe probably and maybe the rake we will see.

Thank you guys for the replies
Eric
