Looks great, Bill. I like the new travel slot on the bucket guide plates. Cable bracket was a good idea, simple and functional. Will you still be offering the handle with mechanical advantage? Sure is nice to have if you're in a tight spot trying to do a 4 point turn and needing to quickly articulate the lever.

Yes, I plan to make an easy detachable lever for the top of the gunwale as well as the conventional one that fits under the gunwale.  I canít be certain how the one under the gunwale will mount since I donít have an ES-kale to try it on. A person wanting that style may have to enlarge the passageway in the plastic gunwale support strut to accommodate the cable.  So, there are three options I will offer.

Thanks,  Bill.  :)

Here is one of the alternate shift levers for the ES-kape.

 I added cable guide at the rear. It keeps the cable next to the hull and also out of the exhaust stream for the ES-kapes center port.

That looks nice. I recall on my ES-kape that holding that cable too neatly caused too much effort to steer comfortably, that's why I only tucked it in the forward latch and let the rest go free. Created tension in one direction and required the steering handle to be held to go straight. Something to consider.

You are right, Tom, about bend in the cable possibly influencing the steering. I will pay particular attention to that aspect when I get out on the water.  Maybe there is a balance point where the ess Bend in the cable nulls out any bias.  Iíve not noticed it so far since my steering is somewhat stiffer due to my foot steering system. It could be a trade-off that an owner would need to consider if they desire a reverse.  I will probably continue to explore improvements and I greatly appreciate your insights.  Thanks.  :)

Just finished two more reverse units for the pre ES-kape boats. They are available if anyone is interested.  I also have two units for the ES-kape models, also available.  ;)

That will be the next purchase for my boat. That will allow me to use my boat like a bass boat. Launch it from a boat ramp like a pro...Few weeks of not eating in cafeteria and im ready...let me check the videos and see how responsive that is...

I just completed a few more reverse units, two for the pre Es-Kape models and two for the Es-Kape models. The respective prices are $250 and $350 including shipping.  The Es-Kape models include a new cast aluminum nozzle.  Message me if you are interested.
