  • Proper WTC placement

    Hello all,
    I am installing a new OTW cylinder in my OTW Upholder. Can someone tell me the correct, proper way to locate it within the hull?
    Thanks,
    Mike

    With everything in place, position your fixed ballast weights so the hull balances at the half-way point along its longitudinal axis. Stick the WTC/module/cylinder/ MSD/ whatever-the-hell-you-want-to-call-it so its ballast tank is centered at the boats C.G.

    I have spoken (crash of thunder).

      Thank you Sir David for the awesome directions. I call you "Sir David" because if we had a Queen...... you would certainly be knighted for all you have done for this hobby.
      Cheers!

        Knighted, or she would likely have a last second change-of-mind and lop my insulant head off my shoulders. Them old-school Royal's play rough. (the current Royal's ain't worth a bucket of spit -- spoiled, inbred, pampered ****-heads).
