    Tool retrieval...

    Ive found a good way toget thoughs darn tools you drop under the motor in the ski. I got a magnet from a dollar store thats on old style retractable antenna type handle. Ive drop alot of tools and have never been mad once. Gets the lost tool out everytime with no hassel.

    Yeah... that would pretty much suck I'd find another wrench somewhere to fit that beotch though

    The one you dropped will be in the back of the hull after the next ride... guaranteed

    Hell... as much as you have to pull yours off... you should just leave all of the bolts out ...

    The inner two aren't bad at all... if you use a 12" 3/8 extension with a swivel and short allen socket on the end

    I use a cordless hand drill with a flexible extension and allen bit, puts those side clamps on in a breeze!
