Here is the finished tab job. Very pleased with the placement. Bennett recommends as far outboard as possible but with at least 3" to the chine, which I was able to do. I wanted to follow the contour from chine to chine but this works better as I am still able to use my trailer straps without manipulation.
Each screw tightened as if screwed in stone. Very pleased with how strong they seem.
I could have centered this controls but the helm wire harness runs just above this.
Nice that Maxum left an open aux terminal. I simply crimped on the connector that Maxum left there, replaced the fuse with a 20 amp and plugged it in (bottom right corner)! Couldn't have been any more simple. Fun project!
The hydraulic pump nestled in with the outdrive hydraulic pump. It's tight but it works. The trick I used was actually removing the wood 'wall', installed the bracket, reinstalled the wall and slide the pump unit into the bracket.
