    How much does all the hydraulic and electrical components weigh?

    I have a manual cable that runs the place diverter and I was going to change it over to a hydraulic system, but I wasn’t sure how much weight I would be adding to the boat.

    Well, it doesnt weigh as much as the handle and cable together. I didnt weigh it, but i would figure about maybe 2 pounds.

    cant be much of a difference in weight between a manual and hydraulic.if your that worried about the weight issue stick with the manual.

    Never used a pedal before but I always run my manual diverter oppposite so when you want the rooster up you pull the lever toward you or toward the rear of the boat.

    That way when you mash the gas and you get slammed back in the seat your pulling back instead of fighting the forward motion of the boat

    With no pressure on the left pedal, the pedal is all the way back, and the diverter is all the way up. Push it down to take off, then ease up on it to trim out out where you want it.

    What's that bag on the floor in the 3rd pic? Is it for an IV or a catheter drain?

    Built two different ones in the late '90's, they work killer, keeps both hands on the wheel (whitewater boat), the later one used a hydraulic clutch master cylinder from a Toyota truck and a Hydraulic slave cylinder from a Chevy truck (was mosly plastic) with a 20# return spring on the pedal...Mo betta'..
