        I have one I am considering selling. The parts look great, it just doesn't fit exactly right. The top deck curvature of my 2002 is different than the boat the pylon was designed for, and the trim ring is going to need to modified extensively to fit properly. It should work fine if you have a 2001 or earlier. I can take pics and measurements if needed.

              Here is the ring on my 1999. I am going to take a belt sander to it.

                Mine fits about like EchoLodge's, although mine is also too wide and hangs over the seat and engine hatch.

                I got in touch with Rick at Tachyon and decided I'm going to try to make mine fit before giving up completely. If it happens to be too expensive to modify mine or cut a new ring I will let you all know.

                  The other option I was thinking about was to use the stock ring and cut the too short tube to fill in the gap.

                    I one of you out there ends up not using the trim ring, I would like to try a different one on my boat also, just to see if I get a better fit. Please let me know!

                      I finally got around to installing mine. Like others, my top ring does not fit my hull so I have been taking a belt sander to it. I also need to trim down the tube so my pylon is level. I will post some pics when I get the ring on.

                        Great to see that they are all installed now, except the one that intrlaz has - which is in my office, ready for me to re-design.

                        I found that even on the same model boat from the same year, there is a LARGE variation in the relationship from the pylon mount to the top deck. This means that for any future runs, I will have to have measurements so I can produce the pylons with the proper height.

                        For future production runs, assuming there is a chance I will do this again, I will alter the trim ring radius so that it fits better & I will also have each person measure a few critical dimensions on their boat for me so that I can produce the pylons that fit perfect the first time out!

                        I need to have at a minimum (3) orders to produce the parts, or the cost is too high. Perhaps this fall would be a good time to set up another GB.

                        Thanks!

                            Still need to adjust the height by cutting the tube. I was able to get the ring close by making a template of the curve.

                            BTW. Anyone else notice how hot the new plyon gets after the engine has been running a bit?

                                Any news on a new order? I have a 2002 SAN and am definitely interested.
